Paargespräche – Together forever

In 24 absurd and entertaining couple conversations, Jochen Schmidt (text) and Line Hoven (illustration) find out what it means to be a couple and still love each other between daycare, taking down the trash, home office and shopping. We learn about non-violent communication from Terence Hill and Bud Spencer, Jeanne-Claude and Christo show us how best to wrap presents, and Moneypenny and James Bond explain why men should also seek parental leave. And the notes and thank-you notes that follow are at least as fun. The perfect gift for Valentine’s Day, a wedding – or, better yet, a divorce.

Luise Volkmann

Luise Volkmann is an artist who works with sound. She believes in the transformational power of art to change or support lives emotionally. Therefore the website proposal consists of two layers: One is colourful, loud, wild, it includes images and patterns in bright colors. The other one informs and is transparent, so the images can find their way through it and to the user to touch her/him.

Dorval, Quebec

Dorval is a small town in Canada near Montreal. In April 2020, almost the entire staff of Herron Residence had stopped showing up to work for fear of catching Covid-19. Residents had been left to fend for themselves for days. For thirty-one of them, help came too late. This powerful and award winning short story by Frank Schliedermann is transformed into a special edition book made of finest paper and finishing. But the dynamic font on the cover already points to the dramatic emotional journey inside.

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.
