How can technical functions and processes be presented in unified, simplified graphics? Dimensions is a technology company that provides data apps and data services for different audiences like scientists, universities or companies. Based on the existing CI, we translated this versatile offer into infographics, icons and illustrations. The graphics explain functions on the website; an icon library provides graphic support for presentations and hand-outs. Derived from the logo, we designed matching header graphics for web and print.

How to find a language for a restless form? The artist book ‘Produktionsprojekte’ was designed in intensive dialogue with the artist. It represents the artist’s works, but also his experimental working method through the page layout, the dynamic arrangement of the images and the repetitive use of typography. The catalogue also contains its own typo-/graphic interpretations of Samuel Treindl’s working method. Due to the elaborate printing and binding technique, the catalogue itself becomes a ‘production project’.

The week of events ‘Über-Setzen. Erkundungen auf der Veddel’ took place as part of the 9th Hamburg Summer of Architecture. Projects by HafenCity University students were presented around the old customs area on the Elbe island of Veddel, accompanied by thematic discovery tours on Veddel and the Elbe. For the design, we played typographically with words, syllables and lines that create a connection between format and meanings.
