Yello

Fresh, light and full of energy – that’s Yello! As the first editorial project of the brand relaunch, the brochure conveys the change from an energy supplier to a source of inspiration for everyday life. On the color scale, strong yellow in combination with fresh mint and peach creates a summer feeling all year round. The light, hand-drawn illustrations by Veronika Kieneke bring fun, identification, even more energy and each one tells a story. This way, even figures and calculations are anything but boring.

Christmas cards

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!

Karin Rocke: Edition 2021

“A small number of fine things” is the title of Karin Rocke’s Edition 2021. Romantic coloring and masculine elements mix to an extraordinary tension. The color scale ranges from soft lemon and rusty coral to milky white and deep navy. These beautiful tones come back in soft gradients in the layout to stress the connection to the pictures. Welcome, summer!
