Studio Charles Villa is a creative office for graphic design and art direction in Paris mostly working with cultural institutions, artists and publishers. The work focuses on visual identity, editorial and book design, poster, animated, signage, website, and pattern, with a strong interest for printed matters.

Charles Villa is a graphic designer graduated from the École supérieure d’art de Bretagne in visual communication. After his studies he collaborated with graphic designers Jocelyn Cottencin (2011) and Frédéric Teschner (2012-2014) before joining the Mains d’Œuvres residency program (2014-2015). In 2016, he designed the visual identity of the École Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle, ENSCI-Les Ateliers (collaboration with Benoit Böhnke). Several of his posters have been exhibited as part of the International Poster and Graphic Design Festival of Chaumont (2018 and 2021). Since 2020, Charles Villa has initiated a research on the fading of printing inks entitled Image Bleue, for which he received a grant from the Centre National des Arts Plastiques. To keep up this research, in 2024 he was invited by the CNEAI to take up a residency at the floating house in Normandy. He frequently teaches in various art schools as part of workshops or juries. Some of his projects are available on Dos Bleu and Dumpling Books.
