    This experimental installation was a typography exercise using a non-traditional medium. It featured the German word for speed limit which, ironically, is quite lengthy.

    The natural chevron pattern that bubble wrap provided helped support the creation of an edgy, strong and contemporary black letter typeface.

    Internship Project

    A poster series to promote events at supper clubs. The design and illustration of the posters describe the look and feel of the Minneapolis-based client Phillips Distilling Company and represents its connection with the Upper Midwest. The elongated and flowing illustrations depict landmarks in Minnesota and the Midwestern area.

    Colors symbolize the four seasons of the year, in which a single event takes place. The modernistic typography includes a traditional feeling by the choice of the typeface, and together with the illustration, creates a connection between the past, present, and future. My role was to design the layout, type setting and illustration. Logo design and copy were created by other interns.

    The timeline depicts the changes of the borders and front lines of Germany under the leadership of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis from 1933 until 1945. Selected dates with short explanations give an overview about important events during those years. The strong red color fields identify Germany as the aggressor and show the controlled area by the Germans.

    Thin lines guide through the beginning of the timeline to the end. Together with the reserved treatment of the type, the focus stays on the growth and decline of the red fields. The total length of 49 feet of this work visualizes the long suffering and duration of the war.

    The newspaper covers famous German-Americans in the history of the United States. Back in the 1800’s, many Germans came to the U.S., especially Minnesota, and took a big part in the cultural and industrial development. The museum newspaper tells their stories.

    Simple, bold, geometric shapes in black and white are typical elements of German design and create a connection of German-Americans with their origins. The newspaper contains modern and traditional elements in layout and type setting. Strong compositions with striking contrast in size and color invite to discover and also highlight the major impact those people made.
