Typografie, Magazine & Playlists
Magazine und deren Designs folgen bestimmten modischen Codes. Die visuellen Moden können sicherlich mit den musikalischen Moden der letzten Jahre verglichen werden. Die meisten Grafik- und auch Typedesigner verorten sich ja mit ihrer Arbeit und ihrem Musikgeschmack in den verschiedenen zeitgenössischen Feldern – Typografie, Magazine, Playlists.

Impressions of Heimadesign
Heimatdesign invited us to present our project at the fashion, design and photography event in Essen, Zollverein. The location is absolutely great. This place of blood, sweat, heat and muscles has been changed into an open air museum with a cinema, bars, swimming pool, expositiion halls, dancing places etc.
HP supportet us again with a Designjet 90, which allowed us to show our way to work: making pictures, illustrations and sampling both to images that are sticked to wall as soon as they where printed. For a lot of visitors a surprising experience.
We all loved the bands. Most of all the synthie-pop band Client. Go and see them if you love wet dreams.
The Heimatdesign-staff made a superb job (thanx to all of you!). We´ll hope to be there next year.

Opening of the Exposition
RAS STORE BARCELONA, Doctor Dou, 10
We are back in Germany. Yesterday we left the hotel at 7 o´clock in the morning, we went to bed at five. The plane arrived at 12:20, I was in office around 2:00 in the afternoon. Europe melted to something so small...and very big. These 4 days and nights in Barcelona have just been BIG!
On Tuesday ACTAR (actually Ramon is teaching there) invited us to have a lecture at the Elisava design school, showing our project to the master-class of design. The class has some "bastards" (students come from all over the world). Most studens came the next day to the opening of the exposition.
We felt gratefull for all those people who came to see our work. And we loved to see Ramon, Anna, Albert, Dolors, Rein and all the others from ACTAR - opening their hearts and showing us their respect for our work, trusting in our ideas and our design. It was fun to built up the exposition with the help of Gaby and Leonora. We where very thankfull to see Sudabeh Mohafez, one of the authors of the book, to read the first part of the storry STONE QUARRY. We where happy to see Rüdiger John who wrote the introduction to our book.
A lot of friends from all over the world came along: Arjen from STEREO in Holland came and offered us the latest issue of his fantastic magazine; Paadin from the Design Studio Lamosca; on the way from the airport Gerona to Barcelona my cousin Ulrike (I haven´t seen here for over 20 years!) recognized me and came along for the opening; Escobas from the FAKIR-Artist Group from Mexico-City came unfortunately to late, but I am sure he saw the expo today; Sandra from Zürich was there as well as Aurelia and a lot of other friends.
A very intense moment. Thanks to all of you! You made our world shrink to something big.

LEONORA AND GABY
We are preparing the expostion that will open in two days. Leonora and Gaby are helping us and made a real good job. We decided to keep one of the walls black (from a previous exposition). André started a barking dog-bastard-image and together we glued a wallpaper with makulatur-prints that André will overdraw tomorrow. We don´t know yet where to hang all the frames. We´ll see tomorrow! That´s Bastard!
