Extra Vitamins is a studio that pushes the boundaries of art and design through innovation, play, and experimentation.
We dive deep below the surface to craft thought-provoking work full of discovery and hidden complexity for a variety of clients. We love to embrace the magic of chance, and leverage suprises into original and intentional visual communication.
In addition to commissioned projects, we continually produce self-initiated work in the form of clothing, books, typefaces, objects and installation. This work is often influenced by an ongoing investigation into semiotics, primitive expression, visual synchronicities, and post-internet tendencies.
Extra Vitamins was founded in 2016 by Julia Belamarich and Kyle Warfield and is currently based in Denver, Colorado.
