Orgel Klang Elektro Tanz
Flyer
148 x 210 mm

Flyer for a special event in a church. In addition to guides and speeches there will be a musical entertainment from organ to electronic music played by DJ’s.
For the visual language we chose to fragment some typical elements from songbooks, rearrange them in a new way and give them a new meaning. This way it is possible to combine church music with electronic music through an own visual language. Some texts and words are disconnected in a way it is done in songbooks to extend the pronounce in a singing way.

Freshcuts Recordings
We love it (Series)
Vinyl 12″

Record cover for “We love it”. A series of exclusive releases pressed on vinyl by Freshcuts Recordings. Limited to 300 copies. This is the first 12″ of the series. The photography concept is based on an evolution of the picture. With every release an object or something else from the artist or the song will be placed in the picture. So the content grows until the last release. The finished series with all releases will be available in a wooden box.

Printed in
Magazine
218 pages
200 x 270 mm

«Printed in» – The spontaneous appearance of similar opinions» is a magazine, which intends to bring blogs and printed media together and shows that these two medias can be combined. Both of them have some qualities to exploit. In different chapters, instead of posted in, called printed in, the magazine shows how blog articles can be designed on paper and in a professional way.
A magazine made from Blog entries. Why this? To collect, to feel, to make time for it, to give an answer to the daily speed of blogging and the internet, to slow things down and to give the reproduction of type and photography its perfect medium: paper.

Visuelle Dialoge
Flyer
Poster
420 x 594 mm

«Visuelle Dialoge» which means «Visual Dialogs», is the exhibition title of the diploma projects and other final works of the art school in St.Gallen. We used different quotes for the posters which related to graphic design and communication or to the graduation and the students itselves.
The flyer is foldable from A2 to A6 and contains all the informations of the different exhibitions. On the backside is one of the quotes which can be used as poster.

Bon Voyage
Flyer
297 x 420 mm

Foldable Poster for a concert and party night with french artists dOP. Printed on Chromolux. The idea was to use some typical elements from maps and combine them in a new way. The folding remembers of a map too. We used flowchart-looking graphics to let the reader travel through the sentence.

Rosario Florio and Larissa Kasper are 2 talented designers from St. Gallen Switzerland that form part of a design collective called Bureau Collective. With a shared passion of typography, print and editorial design, both Rosario and Larissa’s frequent collaborations lay the groundwork for building their own studio in the near future.

Suffice to say, if their talent is anything to go by their future work (as a studio) should be pretty interesting to say the least – I always find it refreshing to see designers use typefaces in ways and circumstances I could never imagine ;)

Thank you once again to Rosario and Larissa for making this feature possible. Just in case you’re wondering: Larissa is currently working at OK-RM, whilst Rosario is doing what he does best in Zürich.
