    komma is a platform for presenting projects of students of the Design Faculty of the University of Applied Sciences, Mannheim. The Magazine is entirely organized by the students themselves and every task is exclusively managed by the editors. The constellation of the team constantly changes and therefore every edition has its own topic and identity. komma is a showroom for Bachelor-, Master-, Semester- and free projects. Every issue is sent to over 1200 leading names in the design scene. Editor in chief: Jean-Pierre Meier Editorial office: Laura-Jil Heim Francesco Futterer Steffen Hotel Maurice Fischer Tim Lindacher Volker Henze Tobias Hammer Vanessa Böhme Read Less

The latest issue of the collegiate komma magazine examines the topic »Aufbruch« which means departure as well as breakup. The usual parameters of the magazine are split into three parts
which break open increasingly. The design of the brochure is consciously reduced given that the grid
is unobtrusive to offer more space without interfering with the student works. The grid as well as the content is rather free in the newspaper that contains the editorial part. Furthermore, graphical contributions to the newspaper are made by Stefan Marx while Uwe-Jens Bermeitinger expressed himself verbally. After all, the poster dares a final breakup. It was designed for the »Captcha« design festival, initiated by students. The festival itself enfolded the principle »Befreiung der Schrift«, roughly translated into liberation of type. komma 15 is also a break out of familiar maxims, intentionally
fracturing expectations.
