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.
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!
Energie hoch 4
“Energie hoch 4” is a bonus system for schools in Hamburg initiated by the city. If pupils and teachers save resources, not only the environment benefits, but also the schools financially. Everybody is encouraged to save energy and water, reduce waste and heating and teach others about the effects behind it. Colorful media with a bold typography are visible and motivate: Posters communicate the idea, a flyer with a lot of illustrations provides deeper information, a well structured form leads through the bonus system and a set of stickers helps to remember the task on many touch point.
The second edition of the re-designed Hamburg yearbook of literature welcomes readers with a shiny field of metallic blue hot foil with a scene from space – two astronauts who landed on the lettering “Ziegel” (brick), an illustration by Sascha Hammer. It invites you on a journey into the unknown, into the inner part, where fifty authors present their texts – from poetry to graphic novels to fiction.
