|06 August 2010 Web Section update
We just did a big update of the web section on our website. We still see ourselves more as print and corporate identity designers but many of our websites have been part of bigger jobs that included print or identity design.
19 July 2010 Cruiser Font
We have been asked by Simone Vollenweider & Anna Sartorius two students at the HGB Leipzig to take part in their Type Cruiser Font Project.
The typeface "Cruiser" will be in an Ebay auction from July 19th till August 2nd. With each new tenderer a new character will be introduced into the existing font. Each new character is drawn by another designer. We designed the pound sign (£) since this is usually the character that causes us the most worries and threw in Dr. Ink as an extra. Please go and bet for the font and keep an eye open for our character!
19 July 2010 Heavy Stuff
Our ex-intern Steffie finished her diploma at the FH Dόsseldorf and Holger went over to Germany to see the degree show. Its most definitely the heaviest design produced as it needed a forklift truck to lift her logo for the museum island Hombroich. Congratulations Steffie!
12 July 2010 Venice
Holger was invited (thanks, Elisa!) to give a talk on collaborations in graphic and interior design at the University of Arts in Venice (IUAV) as part of their yearly WAVe workshop series. A beautiful Art school, right on the water and you can see the big cruise ships docking at the end of the campus.
28 June 2010 Meet Dr.Ink
We must be bored; or its too hot do design anything sensible. Today we created Dr. Ink, the new studio mascot. He might appear on our coffee mugs soon.
21 June 2010 Another volcano dust cloud
Belmacz is finally about to open their first high street shop in London and we have started designing it. So far it is just a smoking volcano but it will explode soon! Our design is focusing on the contrast between raw minerals, how they are created by often violent natural events and the final polished piece of jewelry that seems to be quite removed from this process.
01 May 2010 Idea Magazine
Our work has been in quite a few magazines and books recently and there are still more to come out. The nicest to mention is probably the Japanese Idea magazine which we have been reading for years and admire for its continuously interesting content and most beautiful printing. We are also in good company among many friends and other small studios whose work we like.
28 April 2010 Tess in 3D
It took a little while but today we finally installed a simplified 3d version of the Tess logo in their reception area. The sign is made from different layers of acrylics separated by spacers.
24 April 2010 Punk Never Dies!
A farewell and goodbye to Malcom McLaren. It may not be directly work related but without him and the first adventures in cut and paste graphics our studio may never have existed.
23 April 2010 New website for Holger Pooten
We just designed and programmed a new website for the photographer Holger Pooten a friend and fellow country-man of our Holger. It's a small and neat slideshow site. Check out his cool hyper-real photographs!
