Dala prenotaziun ala vacanza

From booking to holiday – what do I have to consider? The booklet ‘Begriffe des Handwerks in der ladinischen Sprache’ helps Ladin gastronomy businesses to communicate with guests, clients and other companies. The booklet consists of two interlinked parts: a trilingual Glossary and a part with communication examples, such as menu cards or correct hotel signage. Both parts each have a cover. The formal contents of the booklet are communicated using lively and colourful graphic language.

Dimensions Bildsprache

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.

ta bum!

The booklet ‘ta bum! Musical Impulses’ is a collection of compositions, games and stories for early musical education conceived by the music teacher Esther Videsott.
The design is very playful but also functional: the different formats of the pages, the illustrations and patterns, the ring binding and free spaces make the booklet a functional and creative tool for educators. The multilingualism is represented by different colours.

Bauforum 2019

The seventh ‘Internationales Bauforum’ took place in August 2019 at Deichtorhallen, Hamburg. 14 interdisciplinary teams were invited to develop models for a future approach to Hamburg’s main traffic arteries, the Magistralen. In cooperation with the urban planning agency urbanista, we developed the CI and graphic language for the event, which lasted several days. We designed all printed media including a magazine, detailed work booklets about each Magistrale for the teams, as well as exhibition boards.

Produktionsprojekte

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’.

Veddel Übersetzen

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.

Heterocronias

Is there only one form of time and does it apply to all?
