Unijobs-JobWohnen-logo.jpg

The biggest Austrian online portal for student- and part-time jobs, unijobs.at and its partner company for jobs and flats, jobwohnen.at, hired us to design their new logotype. Furthermore they let us to breathe in some new life in their branding. We developed a consistent style concept including some important parameters such as colors for all their communication media in print as well as the softer shades for use in web.

As the new unijobs.at website was updated to a crisp new all responsive, all webfonts design. Parry and Source Sans became the new corporate typefaces.

This lettering was made for the shop-window decoration of Kastner & Öhler’s flagship store in Graz. K&Ö beeing one of the oldest and biggest department store chains in Austria. The lettering became the center piece of the brilliant decoration work of Birgit Coyle – whom it was lovely to work with.

Bussi Bussi Bussi

BussiBussiBussi.jpg

Once more Austria’s daily newspaper Die Presse and the Austrian post office invited graphic designers to design a new stamp for our country. Topic: Forecast 2050

In the past we went from friendly over provocative to gentle, and now, for this year’s topic we go for looove. Visioning the future, our country will be open minded, positive and confident. All people are peaceful and happy, act unprejudicely and appreciative. Our Bussi stamp is an ambassador for these values and should spread them all over Austria, all over the world! Let’s start now and reap at least until 2050!

Ausblick 2050: Österreich – ein selbstbewusstes, positives, offenes Land, in dem jede/r unvoreingenommen, friedlich und freudig ist und man wertschätzend und liebevoll miteinander umgeht. Die Bussis, die man mit dieser Marke verschickt, dienen als „Botschafter“ und Multiplikator dieser Werte. Jetzt beginnen. Morgen und bis mindestens 2050 ernten.

David Sudweeks made this FontCast interview with Michael a while ago. He’s talking about how Typejockeys came together, where the name comes from, and who influenced him to become a typeface designer.

Biorama Anniversary Cover

10-Jahre-Biorama-Cover.jpg

With the current issue Biorama magazine is celebrating its 10th anniversary. For that good reason they let us design their cover. We came up with this idea of an exploding “feiern” (German for “celebrate”) bursting into confetti. Obviously.

Above are some of Thomas’ sketches. Of which the right one became to be the final design. Below are some alternative colors we tried in the design process.

Some color effects take care of the extra punch!

Oh, and we also made an adaption for the iPad magazine version of Biorama.

Rücksicht, Freude, Mut

DiePresse-Briefmarke-2015-Typejockeys-Ansicht.jpg

After last year’s provocative approach we tried to be more gentle this time. Austria’s daily newspaper Die Presse and the Austrian post office invited graphic designers to design a new stamp for our country. Topic: Factor Future in Austria’s economy.

Consideration, joy and courage – these three words are in our opinion the key to a quite a lot of things. Even in politics or economics. Or rather, especially there! 

„Österreichs Zukunft als erfolgreicher Wirtschaftsstandort?

Nur wenn wir rücksichtsvoll, unvoreingenommen, mutig und maßvoll handeln, erreichen wir Fülle. Das ist der Schlüssel zu einer positiven Zukunft und einem lebenswerten Österreich. Raum und Zeit für ein schätzendes Miteinander, für Kreativität, für Bildung, Mut zur Innovation und zu fairem Wettbewerb – all das, vernetzt mit Freude: Zukunft, wir kommen!“

The project was developed together with our intern Franzi. We are committed to the statement. Unfortunately the jury didn’t like the outcome as much as we do, though.

Bora. Eine Geschichte vom Wind

Bora-cover-Typejockeys.jpg

Ruth Cerha’s new novel Bora; Eine Geschichte vom Wind is about a summer on a quiet little island in croatia. About the sound of the wind. Grains of sand. About two people meeting each other.

Bora-books.jpg

Ruth’s writing is colorful and so rich of details. The book jacket’s design just had to reflect that. Being entirely hand lettered, the illustrative style and coloring shall give you a sense for what’s waiting inside. Jump in. The water is perfect!

Bora; Eine Geschichte vom Wind is Ruth Cerha’s fourth book. Available in Austria this week. Order it online. Or better: Buy it in your trusted bookstore. (It will likely have an online shop too, btw.)
