Christmas is the time of the year, when you think on your beloved ones, when you pause for a moment to say “thank you”. Still one of the nicest ways to tell is by a handwritten postcard, a little personal surprise in the moment of opening the postbox in the everyday rush – and even more, if it’s not a cheesy golden-stars-and-tree ensemble but a simple black-and-white design that manages to put a smile on the face!
The “Trilogie vom Hiersein” is a series of three dance performances. The ensemble works very intuitively, their goal is to express pure emotion and transmit it to the audience. The flyer and poster capture the volatileness of the tiny moment of being that can be called “here” by combining three images to one explosive dance figure, interwoven with the headline – concentrated and energetic at the same time.
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.
New York, 1990s: Food artist Gustav Glander disappears without any trace. Hamburg, twelve years later: Food critic Gerd Mönninghaus seems to recognize Glander in a restaurant and starts researching… The result is a novel about both: art and cooking. So ist he design: Materials and the reduction to typography adapt classic cook book design. With the bright colour, the rough pencil strokes and the little icon the art world is represented as well.
