Concept and Editorial design of »94513 characters«, a bachelor thesis

The new, the unknown and the different—associations that are caused by these terms are often perceived by many as a burden. Relief is often sought in conventions that are even vigorously defended if they should not be taken into consideration or questioned anymore. And yet it is actually the opposite attitude that is worth striving for: thinking against the norm. The aim of this paper is not to show a graphical discussion of changes and adaptions, but rather a substantive one. Questions of design are only secondary in that process. Once most of the content-related barriers have been removed, the graphic design options can be explored at the next level. 94513 characters—a norm criticizes a norm.

Visual identity of »blubberfilm«, a film production studio

The project »blubber« was launched in 2017 and is a film production studio, film collective or maybe you simply call it a passion project. In everyday professional life, the three founders were driven in similar yet different directions. Nevertheless, there is a desire to realize self-written scripts, putting a team together and refine the final product. In their debut short film, they use the horror genre and elements of the psychological thriller. The attraction of playing with the feeling of fear and at the same time challenging the imagination of the audience makes this genre so interesting and versatile for them. Horror—a good start.

Visual identity of the »banale«

In 1993, when an exhibition was first organized by architects for architects from the drawing rooms of the University of Technology Graz, the banale was continued in the following years with an opening in terms of content as an interdisciplinary series of exhibitions. So this year's banal in the summer of 2021 is to be organized as an open-minded, interdisciplinary retrospective with an overarching banal topic, in keeping with the lively and critical culture of discussion that prevails in the drawing rooms. To begin with, an action in public space—the construction sins procession.

Visual identity of the »Styrian Orienteering Days«, a sport event

The Styrian Orienteering Days are part of the European City Race Tour, which is a league of orienteering events in major european cities just like Barcelona, Roma and Liverpool. An aim of organizing such events in urban environment is, among other things, an increasing popularity of the sport orienteering. To enhance this process a visual identity of the event had to be developed.

Poster design of »Finders, keepers.«, a short film

"Frisch, gut duftend – ein Labyrinth aus Bäumen – außen knusprig und innen vielleicht noch leicht warm. Die Dunkelheit und drei Freunde am Heimweg ihres Ausflugs. Die Versuchung ist groß, der Speichel rinnt, aber der innere Zwang hat entschieden. Zuerst aufbrauchen. Morgen wird es dann soweit sein. Orientierungslosigkeit und schließlich der Verlust des Glaubens noch am rechten Pfad zu sein. Die einzige Rettung eine abgeschiedene Hütte. Auch morgen das Gebiss in einem harten, zähen Stück. Oder war das gestern? Niemand öffnet, doch das Gulasch kocht am Herd. Nicht nur der Hunger schleicht sich langsam ein, ein dumpfes Gefühl kommt auf und zurück bleibt ein süßlicher Geschmack auf der Zunge."

Visual identity of the »Wiener Festwochen«

The Wiener Festwochen today are positioned as a multidisciplinary art festival in the city. Among Vienna's cultural offerings, the point is to present and allow things not yet seen and not yet heard, and to work as a content engine linking genres, thoughts, and ideas. The task of the Wiener Festwochen will therefore be to create frameworks for new alliances, rather than to build new borders and fences of art.

Cover design of »The Good Magazine«

Lifestyle magazines that report on the “good” sides of life exist in abundance. But appearances are often deceptive and what is actually "good" remains hidden. "The Good Magazine" deals with what is left out and at the same time brings it to the fore. As part of a course for my bachelor's degree, I conceived and designed these two cover designs for a fictional magazine, along with a few others. One on the subject of money, the other on the subject of vacation.

Editorial design of »Artwerk«, a booklet about architecture

The Museum of the Future is a place which communicates cosmopolitanism to the outside world. This is not only reflected in the facade, but also in the name. Artwerk. An Anglicism, a production facility, a museum—the future. A project where I was not only responsible for the editorial design of this complementary booklet but also fo the architectural part.
