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 ordering 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

For more than 12 years msd students have been working on 23 issues of rhizom in total. It‘s published semi-annually. Supported by Prof. Rüdiger Quass von Deyen, Prof. Dr. Ralf Beuker, Dipl. Des.

I was fortunate to present our RHIZOM 23 at EDCH— Editorial Changing convention march of 2017 in Munich, Germany. Some copies were furthermore featured by stackmagazines.
The 23rd issue deals with the topic of humans seen from the perspective of a designer. Our main topics are based on Susan M. Weinschenk PHD’s book „100 things every designer needs to know about people“. The impressions gained through this book inspired us to interpret the topic of humans and design in an interview issue. We had the honor to be featured on the Blog Design Made in Germany.
