Let's play, color and simplify stories. Together we bring them to life.

We are Cynthia Boom and Kevin Kars. Kars + Boom is a design studio in creation of illustrated stories: playful products, objects, installations and prints. Kars + Boom is founded in 2010.

We escape from reality in our work. We create new worlds in which we wish to wake up, in our graphic & illustrative prints, installations and products. We search for the geometry of landscapes, the shapes and patterns of cities thus creating a new interplay of lines.
