Blixa 6 Studios is a Berlin based graphic studio inspired by the natural world. We offer a rich, deep catalogue of licensable digital designs, graphics, backgrounds and templates for personal and business purposes.
Founded in 2002 by Amy Stafford as an identity development and design studio, over the years Blixa 6 Studios has evolved to include a collection of digital products for artists, designers and businesses; providing licensable “raw” graphic materials to enhance new creative works.
In addition to off-the-shelf graphics, we also collaborate with select partners to develop custom graphics and design systems for commercial projects and products.
