Logo design for NEW DAWN newdawn.digital virtual exhibition 2019 Initiated, created and directed by Tobias Faisst in November 2019, NEW DAWN | Tools to Touch in Times Ahead, unites a multi-disciplinary team of avant-garde thinkers from diverse artistic and creative fields. Together, photography, CGI, animation, graphic design, dance, performance, sound design, and curatorial practices explore the glove as a device for enabling holistic experiences in a discursive, material, and visual speculative future.
NEW DAWN — Tools to Touch in Times Ahead is a collaborative project bringing together 57 creatives from all over the world working in different fields of visual and performative arts, graphic design, and curatorial practices. The collaborative project explores the visual and creative potential of organic and speculative futures around one central object: the glove. The project’s cross-disciplinary character engages and connects on different levels in the conception, production, and creation of content products, envisioning transdisciplinary scenarios where art, design, and technology meet to enable new object-related experiences to be vividly consumed.
Animation, computer-generated imagery (CGI)-enhanced photography, design, performance, video, sound design, and custom-made gloves are the result of collective thinking work, forming their own body of aesthetics that will meet and dialogue with other artistic practices and discourses in a multi-disciplinary exhibition.
Selected shown 3D artworks by Kiwi Bravo & Eduardo Torres, Leeza Pritychenko, Benjamin Muzzin. Further Logos by Vivien Hoffmann, Alice Zani, Charlotte Rodhe, Laura Csocsán, Margot Levéque, Stefanie Vogl, Steffen Hotel, Johanna Burai and Teresa Schönherr.

Typescarf is a type and fashion project initiated by Philipp Bulk and realized collaboratively with Sophia Brinkgerd and Leonhard Laupichler, uniting a team that works from both Germany and the USA. This winter we designed the third edition called ”Heaven in a World so Cold“, uniting a variety of design disciplines with the aim of designing an authentic, one of a kind design accessory. Philipp Bulk had the initial idea for Typescarf in Fall of 2017, wanting to create a product that brought contemporary typography and graphics to street culture. Starting as an experiment and new experience for everyone involved, Typescarf quickly received many order requests and we hope to continue this project on an annual basis in the future.

Icarus is a self directed type project of 2018 and 2019. I developed the letter shapes based on parabola curves, creating a flowing motion of the font. The graphic style was inspired by the ancient greek legend of Icarus and Daedalus. My typeface was published in the latest edition of TYPODARIUM specializing on new typefaces by Verlag Hermann Schmidt Publishers. Furthermore, Icarus is part of NEW AESTHETIC, a collaborative book project that focusses on the emotional power and influence and typefaces hold. Since 2020, Icarus is available for purchase and licensing as part of the Space Collection of Typelab.fr, a platform for independent and experimental type design that was founded by Floriane Rousselot.

2019 Xmalist Magazine

This magazine is my B.A. thesis project at Münster School of Design. In times of overstimulation, constant accessibility and endless possibilities, it quickly happens that one loses focus. We are constantly comparing ourselves to others, trying to exceed expectations, wanting to be faster, better, more efficient. Combining the aspired individualism with the expectations of society triggers many overburdened demands, both hopes and fears with regard to the future are troubling people. We are sinking into material abundance: But why do we lose ourselves in that vast sea of ​​content, consumption and options?
XMALIST searches for signs, causes and solutions to this phenomenon. I am opening up perspectives, create awareness and give impulses, feel the yearning for a self-determined life. My magazine is an attempt to reflect, filter and show how people find their focus. XMALIST is an impulse, an inspiration and addresses the shift away from the addiction for more - to the appreciation of less.
This magazine project is my senior thesis at Münster School of Design. My work was featured by Design Made in Germany
