The artist Samuel Treindl initiates the renovation of a burned factory building located in the city center of Wuppertal 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 residents. We were invited to the inauguration to participate with a silkscreen workshop printing of wood panels to then become the future furniture of the Brandhaus. We developed a strong visual Identity in green, black and pink, the colors most used in Samuels Art. The typical factory window shape becomes the Logo as well as a grid on which the typography can wrap itself around. A small detail: an open window in the center of the Logo to represent the open character of the Brandhaus.
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 is a performance maker and writer based in Hamburg, Germany. We designed a responsive, typography focused, web-portfolio for her. A big menu, hidden in the sentence: „greta granderath: performance maker & writer“ leads to different aspects of her work and corresponding portfolios. The blue type on grey background is a reinterpretation of back and white and underlines her conceptual work, in contrast to it a bright linear gradient pink & blue explosion is shown on all clickable items.
