novum 01.19 »visual identities«
We start the new year with a real fireworks display: Visual identities are the focus of novum 01.19. Developing visual identities is an exciting process, and not infrequently it involves a lot of work persuading clients to venture in new directions. In the novum+ section of this issue we present a very broad spectrum of distinctive and eye-catching visual identities.
For our Showroom section we conducted an interview with the outstanding Swiss-school designer and typographer Erich Brechbühl, who has produced some remarkable posters. You can also discover Eva-Maria Offermann´s very conceptual approach to unconventional projects and designs. Plus, we look at how contemporary campaigns develop, in an article about the agency Wolf/Osmankovic, whose work includes the design for a successful election campaign by the Green Party. Also not to be missed is a dip into the portfolio of Casmic Lab, and the imaginative illustrations of Katinka Reinke. Altogether a rich collection of inspiration for a successful new year!
The cover, printed on Zeta Linen (Reflex Paper) was designed for us by Christian Hundertmark (C100 Studio) and it is the perfect scene-setter for a highly international spread of design talent.
All this and more awaits in this issue of novum!
