Respect and Love from 123Klan
Originally from France, 123Klan was founded in 1992 by husband and wife duo Scien & Mrs Klor. The team specializes in branding and the creation of logos, character design, art direction, and new strategies and of course their first love: graffiti. Finding inspiration in the works of Neville Brody in the mid 90’s, the pair found creative ways to mix graffiti and graphic design to convey their personal style through digital media, giving birth to a brand new movement. The current format of 123Klan appeared in 2003 when Scien and Klor created their own design studio in order to fulfill the requests of their many clients. In 2007, the studio opened its doors in Montréal. At the same time, 123Klan launched their in-house brand BANDIT-1$M.
