We are a completely new digital graphic studio with experience since 2003. For a long time, we were known by the name Dost dobrý design, but in 2018 we changed our name to Protein.

We focus our attention on making the right design decisions. Our clients sell their products throughout Europe and the USA. We work for them in Kladno. We lecture and publish, and are founding members of the Union of Graphic Design.
