Thuy-An Hoang et Xavier Erni fondent le studio Neo Neo en 2010. Actif dans les domaines de l’édition, de la promotion culturelle et de la typographie, ils partage leur temps entre des travaux de commandes et le développement de projets auto-initiés tel que l’édition du journal Poster Tribune, la conception d’expositions, le dessin de caractères typographiques et la réalisation d’éditions d’art. En 2012, ils obtiennent un Swiss Design Award pour leur projet Poster Tribune. Ils enseignent le graphisme depuis 2015 à la Haute école d’art et de design.
