Neuss Kulturamt Jahresbericht 2022

Kulturamt Neuss

Together with Jan van der Most we worked on a redesign of the annual report for cultural institution of the city of Neuss. Central element to this design is the friendly and modern typeface and moiré pattern that form intertwining wavy structures – homage to the location of the city at the river Rhine.

Molodoy typeface

Item #1

Molodoy typeface

free project

„Molodoy“ is a striking font that challenges visual habits by embracing extreme contrasts. It’s a reverse-contrast typeface that plays with edgy and soft shapes, as well as a high distinction in line-width. Molodoy‘s stylistic alternatives allow control over the feel of the text, shifting it to more sharp or rounded shapes. Additionally, interpunction can be changed to provide subtle support or make a bold statement. It is a powerful and loud typeface for headlines, nevertheless lending an electrifying vibe to body text. It comes in two weights, covering West-European character sets. The word „Molodoy“ derives from the fictional language Nadsat and means „youth,“ hinting towards the dualistic personality within the characters – making Molodoy both soft and a bully at the same time.

Roy Mordechay: Tell

Inspired by your browsing history

Elemente aus den Arbeiten von Roy Mordechay finden sich im Gestaltungskonzept für seinen Katalog  Tell (תל) – Inspired by your Browsing history: Die abgerundeten Ecken seiner Arbeiten erinnern an die digitalen Geräte unserer Zeit. Pixeltreppen und Artefakte werden im Textsatz abstrahiert, indem jeder Absatz einen neuen Startpunkt bekommt und sich so dynamisch durch das Buch schlängelt. Referenzen und Fußnoten sind seitlich verankert und schweben sozusagen neben um Text.

B1 – Konstrukteure künstlerischer Form

Item #1

B1 – Konstrukteure künstlerischer Form

Märkisches Museum Witten
The exhibition B1 – Konstrukteure künstlerischer Form showcased works by the artist group B1. Their pieces are characterized by a minimalistic, geometric graphic style that heavily relies on modular, repetitive elements. As a tribute to this distinctive feature, the chapter markers incorporate typographic elements as patterns and feature a strongly geometric typeface. The typeface has a geometric and distinct character. In order to label the works of each room in the exhibition the placement is designed in a small map that shows the position of every piece.

PBSA Werkschau 2020 Website

Hochschule Düsseldorf, Peter Behrens School of Art (PBSA)

These days, the browser window seems to replace the one in our apartments and gives us a view on the world. It has never been so important to stay connected to a transforming technical world. Also in universities being digitalized is more evident this semester than ever before. At the same time, new challenges are emerging for students as obstacles on the path of graduating Bachelor and Master students are showing up. A topic, which is dealt with at the digital exhibition launched on October 16th for the subject area of design for the Hochschule Düsseldorf, Peter Behrens School of Arts, where about 80 bachelor and master graduates studying Communication Design, New Craft Object Design, Retail Design, and Exhibition Design showcase their thesis works.

Instead of a physical tour through the building—where the student works are normally shown—this semester the Werkschau 2020—Peter Behrens School of Arts will be an online gallery where graduates of the four courses can introduce themselves and their work to virtual visitors. Each graduate has their own individual space in their individual form language to support the theme of their graduation work. The online gallery itself with an overall arrangement is according to a theme of Digital Overkillwhich can be explored on the exhibition website.

All graduates received a package containing a poster with all the names of the design graduates displayed in their teams icon – No student ever switches on their camera 😉 as a motive on the other side we chose a collective swarm of pointers.

Hab keine Angst vor mir

Claudia Mann

Soil and ground is an important aspect of Claudias work. Throughout the layout we form “piles” ourselves – made from type and images. Closeups show the texture of Claudias work and function as chapter dividers. The bilingual text is set in a stable way, but images accompany organically where needed.

Item #1

In 20 experiments the boundaries of readability are expanded by pushing typography to its limits. Some are based on the alphabet and create new codes and unknown type systems, others use images as a starting point or are completely based on asemic shapes. Among others, these experiments try to answer questions like how do I camouflage type?can type sabotage content? or how flexible is readability?

In the end it’s about seeing type as an independent form of notation that no longer needs to stick to the message alone.

Sonic Ballroom

Since 1999 the Sonic Ballroom is one of the most important locations for music off mainstream. Fairness, shows with sweat dripping ceilings and the right level of professionality made this punk’n’roll bar to a beloved stop for bands. This book contains stories and interviews of the people behind the scenes, bands and visitors as well as a collection of posters and handouts to show the aesthetic of punk in the 2000’s.

I published this book in 2019. Unfortunately there are no copies left.  This project wouldn’t have been possible without the support of all the people behind the scenes, visitors, bands and friends – thanks you!
