1. Uner – Phamovi 
    Record sleeve

    The title is a combination of the first syllables of each track name that is contained on this record. We therefore also built the letters of this fragmentary title from graphic fragments which is clearly visible.

  2. Julien Bracht – Aime Light
    12” record sleeve

    The dark cool sound of this record inspired a type design and a simple pattern. The anthracite background is printed with a metallic pigment giving the surface a slightly gleaming look.

    A formal playing around with overlaps and colors, making the title and background merge into a single layer.

  4. Dots & Pearls 2
    Record sleeve

    The second release of this series is based on the same basic point-grid as the first record. This time the dots were made visible or invisible by a random generator.

  5. Daniel Stefanik – Confidence
    Record sleeve & CD digipak

    A square of facets filled with different geometric patterns. The title is placed in the upper right facette. Patterns and text are printed in black. The graphics including title text were also printed as highgloss varnish rotated clockwise by 90 degrees.

    Unfortunately the record sleeves had to be produced twice, because the screen printer thought, the file for the glossy varnish was wrong. He rotated it back to make it fit!

    The album was also released on CD and so the design had to be transferred to the digipak format. We didn’t just scale the graphic down, but built the square with less facets. On the other hand five panels plus the CD had to be filled instead of just two. The varnish layer was rotated differently on each panel.

  8. DrykornSpring Summer 2013
    Image book & campaign

    We developed an unconventional photography concept in cooperation with photographer Daniel Woeller, that tries to illustrate the zeitgeist by playing with social-media-photo-blog aesthetics.

    We used a state of the art digital printing system to produce thousands of different covers. Also the varying high gloss or matt cellophane on the cover and the differently colored textile tape on the spine made every single image book unique.

    Each photo is shot and posted in a different way. Only the consistent plot and its protagonists contrast with the patchwork of a social network.

  9. Lisa Marei Klein – Der Hahn ist tot / Ein Sommer ohne Schulbücher
    Double Catalogue

    Two works of art by sculptor Lisa Marei Klein are documented together in one book. Two works, no order, two covers, no backside.

    Material and texture are important aspects of the artist’s works. The title is stamped with transparent hot foil into the rough material of the cover and the content pages are completely coated with high gloss cellophane.

  10. Bees VillageHerbs and Village Blues
    Hand made digipak

    Sustainability and handcraft are very important for the band. So with our design we took an alternative approach, producing plain CD digipaks made from environmental friendly recycling material.

    All text and image content were produced as rubber stamps most of which are reusable. The band handcrafted the albums making every single one unique.

  11. The Water Safety
    Corporate design, CD digipak & logotype

    For a young band we developed a dynamic logotype. In combination with an isometric grid it’s the basis for all the band’s future artwork.

  12. DrykornAutumn Winter 2012
    Image book & campaign

    Just like in 2011 this autumn winter image book is designed to match the book of the spring summer collection. The photo shooting was located at a former film set near Los Angeles, and the images quote the road movie genre in various ways.

    Referring to this, the cover was embossed with the original tire tracks of the car in the book.

    The layout of the content pages refers to a filmstrip and also the high gloss varnish on all pages makes you think of celluloid material.

    CD digipak

    The design plays with the idea of time being a sequence of different states. Movement becomes timeless if you display it as a sequence of images.

  14. Eleven Years Cocoon Recordings –Selected Remix Works
    CD digipak

    We processed the bulky title of this anniversary compilation using a relatively coarse raster. The single glyphs were translated very differently depending on their positions.

    The digipak was coated with rainbow effect foil then printed upon black.

    We rasterized the rainbow effect that appears on a cd and then printed it back on the cd.

    The result of the design process is what it adds up to at the bottom line.
