|14 April 2011 – Logo Marathon|
As part of his teaching at the University of applied Science in Düsseldorf Holger organised a Logo Marathon. A marathon goes over 42 kilometer for which the average athlete needs 4 hours. Based on this parameters students design 42 logos in 4 hours. One every six minutes. The subjects are generated at random by a specially designed website. The idea behind the project is to try a more spontaneous and intuitive approach to logo design. Follow the events here.

25 March 2011 — Grafik
