Kraut & Rüben Corporate Design
Unplastered brick walls, bare light bulbs and an old barn door: Kraut & Rüben combines farm with industrial charm. The focus of the food on offer: salad. For the basis of the salad mix, which can be enriched with farfalle pasta at will, four ingredients can be selected. Olives, chick peas, red lentils or strawberries? Kraut & Rüben focuses on variety and seasonal supply. This also applies for the soups, materialising, depending on the season, as light vegetable soups or hearty stews, as well as for the different variations of oven potatoes. Always on the menu: homemade vanilla or chocolate pudding and rice pudding. Design The design concept is based on a simple principle: cabbage (Kraut) grows upwards and turnips (Rüben) grow downwards. Using no green color, we tried to create a simple yet concise design without using the typical clichés. The up- and downwards principle was applied to the logo, stationery, photography and interior design. Colophon’s Apercu font was the perfect fit for Kraut & Rüben. For the logo it was slightly cut to emphasize the concept. As the client took us on board at a very early stage, we had the possibility to create a concept that really extends to all dimensions.
Uncover Design Fest
The UNCOVER Design Festival has been held in Mannheim since 2016. It sees itself as a platform for cooperation and exchange for designers, companies / organisations interested in design and design consumers – in and beyond the region. Speakers such as Cesy Leonard (Centre for Political Beauty), Van Bo Le-Mentzel or Stefan Sagmeister are the ones who inspire thousands of visitors to the festival every two years. In 2018 we were responsible for the visual appearance of the festival. Together with an interdisciplinary team, we created a flexible design that changes depending on the application. The festival took place in a breathtaking location: the Mannheimer Multihalle. The architect Carlfried Mutschler designed the hall, the Pritzker prizewinner Frei Otto completed it with a revolutionary lightweight flat supporting structure – to this day the largest freely formed wooden grid shell construction in the world.
Pop Up Studio
With the Pop-Up Studio we transform vacancies into a temporary work & project space for creative people from various disciplines. The networking of people from different cultural and creative industries creates new synergies. During the first three months, the Pop-Up Studio was already a concert stage and lecture room, but also a gallery, reading stage, showroom and catwalk. The withdrawal of industry from Dortmund is at the same time a great opportunity for the city to redesign vacant spaces.
