Klangfarbe Rot

university project

In addition to the new visual identity for the “Akademie für gesprochenes Wort” based in Stuttgart there should be created special magazines that represents respectively one of the many events hosted by the AfgW. The one I implemented on the issue of “accent red” shows extreme features of red. Excerpts of diverse poems of famous poets such as e.g. Rainer Maria Rilke, Gerhard Fritsch and Charles Perault reflect “red” in a special way. So the beholders are travelling through an emotive world full of contrasts – in form and content. They get to know the warm and affectionate sides of this colour as well as the disquieting, wild, impassionate and violent ones. Besides there is a development to be observed that doesn’t run linearly but agitatedly and in confusion. Just like red itself does.

This magazine can be unfold so that you get a huge both-sided poster.
