Demokratiefestival Spandau

„Dabei statt nur dafür“ means participating instead of just being there wich was the motto of the three-day democracy festival Spandau 2021. The design of all festival media is composed of a modular key visual: cut-out photo elements – hands gesticulating or mouths grimacing – are held together by a coloured dot grid. For the design of the individual media, the elements are repeatedly varied and recombined to create a lively, varied design.

Media: CI, various flyers, poster, t shirts, stage banner, wristband, social media graphics

beautiful mind

Inspired by classic blue jazz aesthetics, we designed the Godemann Bauder Duo’s new album ‚beautiful mind‘ in bright blue to magenta tones. The loud design stands in wild contrast to the self-image: „Acoustic expansiveness, swinging straight-ahead passages, dreamlike moments and yes, even entertaining feel-good sounds are presented – always framed and interlocked by the spontaneity and improvisational responsiveness inherent in jazz.“

Brandhaus Wuppertal

The artist Samuel Treindl initiates the renovation of a burnt-down factory building in Wuppertal’s city centre to create new space for workshops, talks and temporary art projects. The Brandhaus Wuppertal becomes a place of social exchange for cultural workers, architects, artists and local residents. We were invited to the inauguration to print wooden panels with a screen printing workshop, which will become the future furniture of the Brandhaus.
We developed a strong visual identity in green, black and pink, the colours most commonly used at Samuels Art. The typical shape of the factory window becomes the logo and the grid around which the typography can wrap. A small detail: an open window in the middle of the logo to represent the open character of the fire house.

Kinderstadt Hamburg

We developed a playful colorful visual identity for the first the Kinderstadt Hamburg. Using construction blocks as graphic elements, we developed a key visual of a city landscape. To enhance the topic of building, we added tools, nuts and bolts as additional elements of the Cvisual identity. In contrast to the bright multicolored blocks the CLAIM „wir bauen eine neue Stadt“ is in black and white, but still as fun.

greta granderath

Greta Granderath is a performance artist and writer based in Hamburg, Germany. We designed a responsive, typography focused, web-portfolio for her. A large menu with the sentence „greta granderath: performance maker & writer“ leads to different aspects of her work and the corresponding portfolios. The blue font on a grey background is a reinterpretation of black and white and underlines her conceptual work, contrasted by a bright linear colour gradient explosion in pink and blue, which is displayed on all clickable elements.
