After growing constantly for 20 years already, it’s time for European Film Promotion to use the high profile of the brand and appear in a more consistent look for all events and initiatives. The short form “EFP” is well-known in the international film industry, so it’s set in bold letters on every medium. 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.
200 years ago the founders of Koenig & Bauer invented the first printing machine driven by a steam engine. On behalve of this anniversary a box including a book, a bookazine and 13 posters tell the story from the past to the future – from technical but also very personal perspectives. “Menschen”, “Maschinen” and “Ideen” proove that innovation can result from tradition.
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.
Katharina Gschwendtner is an illustrator and painter from Hamburg. The line is her base, for her it can do anything. In her portfolio the line is the base for the design, too: Headlines are set in outlines, Texts are separated from the images by a line, the characteristic of the font is a constant line stroke. The appearance is resolut, but never superficial, every element finds its place to spread ideas and fun.
Independence, fun and getting new ideas are the engine for FALL. Every issue compiles articles, photographs and illustrations on one term – like “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. Look out for an issue – it’s free, full of passion, and every release is celebrated with a great party!
