We were invited to design a poster for a talk and seminar about Hybrids in and of Films at the University of Art and Design Offenbach.

Create, Avoid, Change is a series of single sheets of paper on the occasion of the New York Art Book Fair 2015 . The series covers topics such as visual impact, work rules and aesthetic language.

The collection is presented in 20 binders containing 10 A4 pages each, printed on the risograph.

Muddy Boots is a collaboration between dancers Ekaterine Giorgadze and Jason Jacobs. Their new visual representation is based on the duo´s dancing style. Muddy Boots is heavily inspired by texts, textures and social events, their dancing style being a transformation of all that. Our graphic realization integrates itself as yet another transformation. When the motion patterns overlay the photographs, the dynamics of the dance become visible once more.

Doin Thinks is the first solo show of up-and-coming artist Tom Król. In addition to the poster for the opening event we have also designed the exhibition catalogue, which presents an as yet unpublished collection from the last three years of the artist´s work.

We were thrilled to have the chance to involve the artist directly in the designing of the catalogue. For the vernissage, we arranged all the books in a stack of 4x4 copies. Each layer formed a composite drawing by Tom Król. With the sale of each catalogue, an ever changing work of art kept unfolding for the duration of the exhibition. The edition is limited to 500 copies.

An innovative identity concept for Atelier Frankfurt one of the biggest artist´s studios in Germany. The new logo interferes with and overlays the image and information level. At the same time, it facilitates the gathering of diverse contents under one corporate identity. The layout grid, changing typography and flexible logo application allow the customer to advertise various events and to stay aesthetically up-to-date without losing brand recognition.

Faunten is our platform for publishing texts on graphic design and related topics. The aim of this project is to share views and make ideas accessible. The publications are available in German. If you would like to participate or receive an issue, please send us an email.

Full Emptiness is a research project on presentation asthetics in the internet. The photographed book is interchangeable. There could as well be a different project against the background. Only through depicting the exterior views as content of the book, the question is whether the external representation has enough relevance to generate content. Our sample can neither be touched nor skipped, because it is shielded by the showcase. Trough this it is similar to the method of presentation of projects in the internet. Feel, content and function are taken from it. Whether something is actually located on the inner sides remains uncertain.

The diversity of the Internet requires a prior filtering of information. This can particularly be seen on platforms such as graphic design blogs. These usually only allow a limited insight into projects, since images are presented in a new context, regardless of their origin. Despite this, they are the main stage for portfolios and works. Through the visual culture of the Internet, the work of the designer gets reduced to a single graphic element. In this new environment an exceptional staging is necessary to stand out from the mass of images. The selected image becomes the showcase for the skills of the designer, with which he can show his aesthetic understanding and craftsmanship. The staging is therefore just as important as the actually designed project. This parallel design has several functions:

The environment shown should enhance the project without revealing any further information about the content to the viewer

The arrangement of different materials gives a value to the project. These materials often have a certain meaning or haptic association, which the designers use. By choosing a presentation form the designer is in full control of all aesthetic and content wise decisions.

Thereby whole documentation chains are often shown, which should give the project authenticity and reality. Whether the project has actually been produced or not can not be discovered at a first glance. The point is to create the illusion of a product reality.

The documentation often shows possible effects on reality before they even happen. For example this can be seen in supposed exhibition situations, human interactions, devised by-products or sales situations. The actual content of the projects is often less clear or remains completely unknown. The question of content will be pushed aside by the visual culture on the Internet. So the advertised project becomes the occasion of a new design, while the content plays a marginal role. The project becomes a graphical object in a visual collage.

Dunkle Ästhetik (Transl.: Dark Aesthetics) is a theoretical and visual comment on military aesthetics becoming commonplace in civilian life. The short video shows the increasingly blurred lines between military, propaganda, fashion, gaming and pop culture. We are neither the creators of the presented material nor does it reflect our personal attitudes. Dunkle Ästhetik is a research project.

This is We Do,
a graphic design studio from Frankfurt, Germany. We see ourselves as visual explorers in all fields of design, including print, web, visual identities and illustration. Research, experiments and playfulness are essential components of our practice and vital for the development from conception to the final product. We are especially excited about the potential of interdisciplinary work and collaborations. During the design process we aim to be advisor, guide and an open minded companion to you and your vision.
