the smart design studio



is a small design studio founded

by Eva Kaufmann in 2004.

Having it's basement in Bolzano - North Italy,

on the border to Austria and Swizzerland

we speak German & Italian

and if you wish or need,

English or French.

We combine different cultural & professional backgrounds

and are accommodated in the creative space RU.17,

a sparkling, openminded community of

different creatives with big-city flair.

ideengarten appreciates being comfortable

in a variety of creative environments,

working across visual media, from corporate

identities and webdesign to illustration and hand lettering.


We collaborate with selected partners & agencies.

That's how we are able, to offer ambitious

product- and exhibition design projects

or communication strategies too.

Our clients include architects, artists, cultural

institutions, individual or small  businesses

and start-ups.

We are convinced:

 - listening carefully is important

- understanding what a client needs, is crucial

and last but not least

- simplicity is the result of hard work

We love challenges, our work

and chocolate too ;-)
