Mark 50

Back in 2013 Claudia was upstructs intern. Together with her we created some cover designs for the 50th anniversary edition of the german architecture magazine “mark”. One of the designs was published in the magazine. Later Claudia and Manuel founded the little and fine befriended studio muskat.

Studio Visit

We had a visit of 26 interested students from Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam today at our studio. We’ve been talking about our story, design projects, working as a freelancer and founding a graphic design studio.

Was nice having you here guys!

Rock am See 2015

Again we’ve created the visual for the ROCK AM SEE Festival at Lake Constance (Bodensee) in southern Germany. Of course we made a free interpretation of “Lake” again. Thankfully there are actually no sharks in the lake nearby. We’ll make a portfolio update soon with a lot more projects from the last months.

Thanks to Chris Danneffel and Daniel Drescher for the great festival photos. This photo shown here is by Chris Danneffel.

Melly goes L.A.

A small inbetweener: Schröder+Schömbs PR asked us to illustrate a map of L.A. as a goodbye present for a former long time employee who’s leaving for the city of angels – including secret and more famous tips of all her colleagues. We’ve been responsible for the whole map excluding the character illustrations.

Take care Melly and enjoy the West Coast life!

The new website is online!

We worked on it for more than 2 years now – always when we’ve been able in between client projects. We’ve dismissed dozens of designs and concepts for it but finally found the direction which should represent us and our high quality work.

Feel free to leave your comment or send us a message of how you like it. Constructive criticism is welcome!

March – ahh it’s a palm tree!
Actually the only hint we already gave when we unveiled the calendar late 2014.
But maybe the strange February line makes a tiny bit more sense now.
Stay hungry!

Next month of the upstruct dot-to-dot calendar: February is really cryptic. Maybe you get it when March is done? Do you identify march already?

Neues Jahr – Neues Büro

Wir haben vor Weihnachten unsere definitiv mehr als sieben Sachen gepackt und ein neues Büro im Wedding bezogen. – Ihr findet uns nun in der Uferstraße direkt neben den Uferhallen. Mit uns im Studio ist Adrian Lohmüller und im Haus viele weitere Künstler und Architekten. Wir freuen uns über unsere neuen Nachbarn und natürlich jederzeit über Besuch.

Tadaa, we have a door sign!

After over 3 years now in this venue. Some things obviously have higher priorities ;-)
