September 2019, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin

We won concept, creation and implementation of the “2020/2021 season design” call for competition for the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin and have already carried out the kick-off with the orchestra’s management team. The results will be visible at the start of the season in spring 2020; the logo redesign is part of this. The Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin has been inspiring audiences for over 70 years with its excellent productions (concert, radio, CD), its commitment to contemporary music and its timeless stylistic confidence—we are delighted to be able to visually accentuate this.

September 2019, Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung

Stan Hema has been working with the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung for the Die Politische Meinung magazine series since 2013. Our first task was a redesign from the point of view of content, structure and design. In addition to the magazine series, we developed various special editions, for example on individual political personalities. Our main task to this day is to design the cover and picture spread in the centre of the issue, which reflects the main topic. The current issue “Entgleist” deals with the change in our language and debate culture.

August 2019, Deutsches Historisches Museum

Second print run for our new billboard campaign (DE, EN, ES, FR, IT, CN, RU, PL) for the Deutsches Historisches Museum (German Historical Museum): female figures from the Middle Ages to the fall of the Berlin Wall, surrounded by bold sans-serif text. They are an eye-catching site in the cityscape and at the building site. The timeline covered by the motifs reflects the permanent exhibition in the Zeughaus, 1500 years of German history in a European context. During the Long Night of Museums on Saturday, 31 August 2019, the German Historical Museum is open from 6pm until 2am. To mark Berliner Bauhauswoche (Berlin Bauhaus Week) and the 100 years of bauhaus anniversary, we delve into the Berlin of the 1920s.

August 2019, Sawade

Our “chocolate customer” Sawade (we actually say client) has already won ten medals and a Special Award this year. Sawade gained a place in the worldwide final in the International Chocolate Award competition for chocolates from Germany, Austria and Switzerland with the gold award for “Walnut on Brandy Marzipan” and the variety also received the Special Award. Sawade also won over the British Academy of Chocolate and its jury of 100 chocolate experts against enormously strong competition. Internationally selected top varieties are awarded prizes. There were 850 submissions (!) from 35 countries and seven times silver for Sawade: among others for the 110 g “Berliner Fernsehturm” (Berlin TV tower) box, the 220 g “Mistelzweig” (Mistletoe) box and the 40 g “Berliner Bär” (Berlin bear). The experts of both competitions agreed on the “Queen Luise” praline: It was crowned silver twice.
