Faces & Laces Moscow

Our back-projected drawings contribute to the plot of the play ‘Der Mäusesheriff’ which is an adaption of the great story by Janosch. The drawings were animated by Marcel Franken.
The concept of the program brochure is a straight-forward separation between images and text. The images of the ensemble are printed on differently sized paper within the brochure. The almost all-new ensemble is introduced to the audience with formally clear portraits.
The headlines and columns are arranged flexibly within the gridsystem, to get a tension-filled composition within the strict design.

Along with artists like phunkstudio & Rachel de Joode we are featured in Fefè, a design magazine from italy. The overall theme for the magazine is “nice things are done slowly”. Are nice thinks really done slowly? That is the question that could immediately arise. Striving for imperfection sometimes involves rapid working, following the stream of consciousness, ignoring borders and conventions, speed as an ultimate source for creativity, destruction and mayhem to overcome the rigid and square status quo that is forced upon our daily lives. A call for pure life as opposed to the dead end mentality of uninspired society.
For the 7th issue of slanted, entitled Geometrics.Porn., we contributed to their type section with our Anti font.
