Workshops

2020/21

Lecture Output>Input
@HFBK Hamburg

The Input>Output seminar went into the third round. We introduced the students to selected artists and graphic designers and their working methods. We also examined the form and content of some well-known fonts and the purpose for which they were originally created. In regular graphic exercises, their own graphic work was activated and the students learned to constantly develop their work and present it in the group.

Lecture Output>Input
@HFBK Hamburg

Due to the success of the previous seminar in 2019, this semester was again about creating a collaborative booklet on the theme of cause and effect. Students developed a practice of looking at and discussing each other’s work alongside developing their own work in the booklet. We also taught risography printing techniques and the basics of print production.

Workshops Posterdesign
@MKG Hamburg

We were invited to give a series of workshops on poster design at the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg. At the ‘DIY poster station’, participants were able to design and stamp their own posters on a specific topic under our guidance. Beforehand, we guided the group through parts of the exhibition ‘Das Plakat’ in the museum so that they could develop their own ideas and approaches. Further information here.

DIY Poster-Station
@MKG Hamburg

In the context of the exhibition ‘Das Plakat’ in the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg we designed a DIY poster station in the exhibition room. Visitors are invited to use stamps to create their own poster designs or to reinterpretate a poster from the exhibition. Simple stamps made of rectangles of different sizes allow a great variability from letters to more complex image motifs.

Lecture Input>Output
@HFBK Hamburg

In the second year of the Input>Output>Input seminar series, we again looked at sources of inspiration in graphic design and art with typography as a basis. In the course of the semester, we examined certain typefaces and classified them in their artistic historical context. Selected designers and artists from this context were presented and discussed.

notamuse Release Hamburg:
Keynote talk

For the release of the book ‘notamuse’ in Hamburg (fux-Kaserne) we were invited to introduce our studio and our work. Afterwards we had a panel discussion about the position of women in graphic design and what it means to be a all-female studio with the notamuse editors Claudia, Lea and Silva. notamuse.de

Lecture Output>Input
@HFBK Hamburg

The seminar Output>Input was the continuation of Input>Output and built on what we had learned and looked at beforehand. The students developed their own designs and in collaboration with the HFBK’s prepress workshop we printed a joint booklet. This gave the students an insight into the basics of print production and what it is like to realise a joint project.

2018/19

Lecture Input>Output
@HFBK Hamburg

In the Input>Output seminar, we dealt with the sources of inspiration and role models of graphic designers and artists. In the course of the semester, various personalities working in the fields of graphic design/typography were introduced or invited for discussion. What are their working methods and how is their personal INPUT reflected in their (typo-)graphic work, the OUTPUT? We trained our eye and learned how to use sources of inspiration for our own practice.

For the opening of the exhibition ‘Hokusai x Manga – Japanese Pop Culture since 1680’ at the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg, we designed and produced templates for paper masks that visitors could cut out and put on. We also designed flyers and invitation cards for this ghost meeting event at the museum.
