BaseThree Founders

Business partners since 2012, best friends since 1993.

Base Three is not a graphics factory. We maintain a structure that is nimble, responsive and flexible in order to meet our clients’ needs as they evolve over time. We’ve designed it to be small enough to have direct personal involvement in every aspect of each project, but large enough to deliver all the skill-sets you need.

We LOVE what we do and enjoy the unique challenges that new projects present. Bring them on!

Art Director BEIRUT

Carine is always up for a challenge. She is never in idle mode and is always looking to venture into the next project. She enjoys taking complex problems and turning them into simple and beautiful graphic solutions. She is driven by logic and structure and finds communicating through design a breeze. Her over five year background in code must help, but in our opinion what really does it for her is her experimenting with making fresh pasta or binging a good documentary series once a week.
