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!
Until today only 15% of the materia of the universe are known. The other 85% are a big mistery. Nobody knows how it looks or behaves. 15 artists and a number of scientists got into an intensive exchange about this “dark matter”.

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.

Tintenstrahl is a collaboration of three journalists who are experts in the diverse fields of culture. They all have the experience of working in the daily press and therefore combine well researched, high quality journalism with the demands of the digital media of today. The visual identity transfers this mix into a concise image and lettering – shining in a bright ink blue.
The siblings Penny and Tom are very different: Penny is open for every kind of magic, Tom always needs a scientific explanation.

The forest on the cover is a place of desire and attraction, a light and powerful paradise, but it can also become dense, dark and mysterious.
