Administrative History

The Decoder Ring is a screen print-focused studio for hire, specializing in posters, products and fine art prints. Decoder partners on many projects with design and brand development studio Helms Workshop, and operates out of space in the Workshop Compound in South Austin.

The company began in 2004 as a design collaborative with a focus on design and screen printing for the music industry. In 2010 partner Geoff Peveto took ownership of the company, shifting the studio’s focus toward screen printed projects and the Decoder Fine Art Print Series. The project hosts artists and designers for studio residencies, creating multi-layered fine art serigraphs.
