»Flora & Fauna« Grafikmagazin 05.22
Nature is one of most abundant sources of inspiration. It has led to great scientific discoveries and inspired iconic works of art. In this issue we take a look at how flora & fauna influenced design.
Find out more in our Grafik+ section on »Flora & Fauna« and in Grafikmagazin 05.22.
Nature offers a lot of creative potential designers can use for their projects. In this issue we focus on »Flora & Fauna« and present magazines, illustrations, spacial designs and corporate identities.
In our section on »production & publishing« we find out what elephant gras is and why this humble plant might help us to reduce our carbon footprint. We visit Rotopol, one of the most charming independent publishers in Germany and the city of Berlin has a plan. To be specific a calendar called Plan N, which helps citizens to live a more sustainable life.
How can designers present themselves best? This is what we want to find out in our focus on self-portrayal. We talked to a voice teacher, who explains why your voice has a lot to do with confidence and the way you present yourself. Also we wanted to know, if it is useful to put a lot of effort into gift and Christmas greetings for clients. Is this a good way to get new commissions?
In our showroom section we remember one of the greatest Swiss graphic designers: Celestino Piatti. He designed thousands of book covers, posters and identities and his work is still very inspiring. Husmee uses the tranquility of the north of Spain create strong identities and Munich studio PARAT.cc perceives itself as a creative laboratory. Max Kersting’s interventions make you think and laugh at the same time – yes, Germans can be funny too.
And as always there’s lots more to be discovered, type design and articles on design & research and some brilliant photography.
A photographic cover is a novelty for us. Perhaps this is the reason, why we like it so much. »Drone Cloud« is the result of a collaboration between Studio Mary Lennox and digital artist Alexis Christodoulou. The project explores the relationship between nature and technology.
The cover was printed on in 300 gsm. This coated quality is perfect for photographic motives. On the inside pages we used Juwel Offset by Berberich.
