|October 2009 – Our website goes online|
Our website has been in existence for quite a while now. However, we have always been too busy to fill it with content. Now we made a start. It still only shows a very small selection of our work (more can be seen in the downloadable pdf in the work section) but we will do our best to put up more projects every week.
October 2009 – Circus
We are currently working on the identity for a new club in Covent Garden called Circus which will open in December. To see how our logo would work in 3d we built a dummy from polyboard and put it in front of a light box. Eventually the lights should be in between the different layers.
October 2009 – Studio refurbishment
We just refurbished our studio. Finally we have larger tables and new shelfing units between the workspaces. It was quite a task to untangle the messy cabling of years that nobody dared to touch before. During the rebuild we worked on a small island in the middle of the studio while the carpenter worked around us. It was quite dusty.
27 September 2009 – TESS Newspaper
We just printed the newspaper for TESS, the model agency for which we designed a new identity. The logo on the belly bands around the newspaper is printed in five different spot colours. Our printer kept a sheet of each layer.
August 2009 – Hall of Fame
Holger scored the top score in the font game and insisted on having this in our news section.
July 2009 – Linocuts
We designed a new packaging concept for the organic food producer "What on Earth". The new packaging shows an arrangement of linocut illustrations. For two days our studio turned into a cutting and printing workshop to produce a range of images that can be used on boxes, tins and wrappers.
June 2009 – Print Museum Dublin
Johannes and Andy went for a weekend to Dublin and visited the National Print Museum. The museum has a great collection of old letter press tools, letters and setting machines. You are free to wander around and explore by yourself.
May 2009 – Zurich
Every year the whole studio flies over to Zurich for a weekend to meet old friends, interns and see the degree show at the Z hdk. It has become a tradition to go and eat the Jumbo Jumbo Cordon-Bleu (a massive piece of meat stuffed with cheese and ham) in the Rheinfelder Bierhalle. This year Alex finished first, closely followed by Andy and Holger. Craig struggled the most and claimed experiencing dizziness apparently caused by meat overdose.
May 2009 – Milan Furniture Fair
The Tom Dixon newspaper on display at the Milan Furniture Fair.
April 2009 – Stay away, you bad spirits...
On his trip to Japan Holger organized an official Buddhist blessing for the studio at a Shinto shrine near Kyoto. Now we will be save from bad spirits of the credit crunch for the near future (hopefully). To put the new blessing into place we had to burn the old one and drink upon it.
