The new strategy focuses on a strong visibility to promote European films successfully on international festivals. This works by very bright colours, a distinguished typeface and a clear arrangement of geometric forms and images. The range of colours allow an almost endless number of combinations and designs, all kinds of images can be inserted, so it’s very effective and easy to use.

Clean Lines is the title of Karin Rocke’s newest collection: The pieces convince by their distinct silhouettes, graphic elements and strong colours crafted in exquisite materials, which unfold their full wellbeing-asset only on your skin. The key colours, a gentle cherry blossom pink and a rich ruby red, frame the collection – so do the coloured geometric fields behind and around the photographs, which add an architectural dimension to the paper.
