Der große Glander


Client: mairisch Verlag
Work: book cover design

New York, 1990s: Gustav Glander has over night become one of the biggest artists of the city, famous for his works and actions as leader of the Eat Art movement. But soon after this success he disappears without a trace. Hamburg, twelve years later: Gerd Mönninghaus, food critic, seems to recognize Glander in a restaurant and starts researching… Stevan Paul – food stylist, journalist and writer – tries to find out in his novel what declares food to art. The book design mixes elements of both worlds: A textured linen cover with embossed centred white typography – as you can find it on several cook books. But some details break this cliché and transfer it to the art world as well: the bright turquoise colour, the name “Glander” written in rough strokes and the little icons of a brush. Enjoy the story of love, coming home and the freedom of always reinventing yourself!

Production: 154 x 215 mm, hardcover with linen, hot foil stamping

KARIN ROCKE


Work: corporate design

KARIN ROCKE is a new fashion label based in Hamburg. Clean lines and cuts combined with strong colours and playful elements form magnificent knitwear, that is classic and edgy at the same time. The corporate design transmits this look from textile to paper and screen: The logo consists of straight letters in restrained camel colour but with a switch in the reading direction. The production details like coloured edges for business and compliment cards and rounded edges for the hang tags complete the appearance of the high quality brand.

Production: offset and letterpress printing

FALL Magazine


Work: editorial design

“You can find FALL Magazine where we like it.” – This statement prooves, that independence, fun and the wish to illuminate topics from different angles are the engine for this – more or less – regular publication. Every issue compiles articles, photographs and illustrations on one term – in this case “Provinz” (backwoods). But don’t expect clichés. – Content and layout always strive for new and unexpected perspectives while at the same time holding highest quality. So look out for an issue – it’s for free, it’s full of passion, and every release is celebrated with a great party!

Production: web offset printing

Bookmarks


Work: art, conception, book design

Bookmarks enable the reader to find back a place in a book to continue reading easily, or they mark important pages the reader wants to find back in the future. In both cases it marks a relationship between the reader and the book as a proof of a personal thought or moment. Especially bookmarks that stay at the same place are positioned with care – while the bookmark in contrast can be everything, even a little scrap of paper. In the project I zoom in on the bookmarks in books. The meaningful places turn into abstract structures, the original images dissolve, something new arises.

Production: 119 x 177 mm, 176 pages, digital printing, thread-stitching, book jacket with flaps

Wiederholung/Repetition


Work: research, writing, conception, book design

If you think of repetition you quickly link it to boredom or fatigue. But what happens if you have a closer look on what’s there while and between a first and second appearance? Isn’t there already a difference just because of the shift in time? How does your perception change? Is this purely subjective? Or does the object modify, too? Is it possible that new thoughts and sensations arise just because you watch a sequence again and again? – With the help of Gilles Deleuze’s theory of “Difference and Repetition” and analysis of video art works by Richard Serra, Joyce Wieland, Samuel Beckett, Marijke van Warmerdam and Ragnar Kjartansson I tried to find answers to these questions. The results are summed up in this book – and they become alive in the layout: by a mixture of difference and repetition in form of five randomly alternating fonts. For the exhibition the essence of the research are presented in information graphics on the wall next to an animation of photographs which is based on repetition.
