The European #8 - Editorial Illustration

I started doing Editorial-Illustrations for The European.

It is a really nice debate magazine. Every Issue has a topic, and around 40 varying authors write articles for every issue. While most printed magazines are slowly transitioning to the digital realms, The European is doing the exact opposite. Having started digital-only five years ago, this is the 8th printed edition. 

I will be doing around 7 collages for each quarterly released edition . Art direction and layout is done by The Green Eyl and Alexandra Bald.
After coming up with a more conservative approach in the beginning, they pushed me to this weirder and more expressive style, done in a collage technique. I couldn't believe the client would approve this bold style, but they were really happy with it in the end. :)

It's Photoshop only and reminded me of those old days way back.

Integration Zürich - TV Spot

Animation Studio: Bitteschön.tv
Production Studio: Pumpkin Film
My Credit: Design

A while ago the canton Zürich in Switzerland launched a campaign aimed towards better integration of migrants. The campaign consists mainly of posters, showing inhabitants of the region with testimonials, painted in acrylics. You can have a look at them on neu-in-zuerich.ch.

We were hired by Pumpkin Film to create a TV-/Cinema-Spot with animated Versions of the Posters in the same painterly style. It was an interesting challenge to come up with the workflow, that gave us the desired look.

Arms & Legs - Cover Artwork

Cover artwork for my good friends at Arms & Legs.

The (obvious) concept is to keep the same shape of a hand and a foot on every vinyl. While the shape can only be changed a little, the subject is always related to the Album.

It helps a lot in terms of recognition, and it's a nice challenge to come up with something new each time.
