Ralph Burkhardt

Ralph BurkhardtHow does a classic print designer solve the online question? This is probably the easiest solution... A calling card of awards, recognition, and a PDF download. The work inside is certainly worth it, for fantastic typographic work, information design and identity systems.... More

Scholz&Volkmer

Scholz&VolkmerA German firm that specializes in corporate branding? Say it isn't so! Yes, Scholz&Volkmer specialize in the design, and implementation of promotional and corporate websites, and they do a very good job at it. But, their specialty and drive is currently focused around live user interaction, and how they can integrate it with marketing for their clients. In the category of full-service interactive work S&V is strong in design, quite advanced in development, and very well-considered in execution... and certainly with 85 employees (at the time of this posting), and clients like Mercedez-Benz and Coca-Cola on their roster, who wouldn't want to get immersed in this live experience?...

Katja Schweiker

Katja SchweikerJust getting back from vacation, we at DT are proud to punctuate this week with a solid portfolio post — the graphic design work of young Katja Schweiker from Germany shows a sopisticated control of the grid and application of typography. Her work is mainly print-based and her "playground" shows an experimental (rougher) side than the clean portfolio may suggest — the site itself is developed by Kai Heuser of Heuserkampf [external link]....

YeahYou'reRight

YeahYou'reRightFrom the lovely city of Hamburg, Germany and available for hire in all fields of digital illustration, editorial design, flash animation and onscreen composition, comes a talented new digital artist and student. We're probably right in assuming Nicholas Arnold is new to the work market, as most of his work is self-promotional, but that doesn't make it any less impressive... actually, it makes it much more impressive! Great collage work, digital illustration and even branding.... More

Die Gestalten Verlag

Die Gestalten Verlag (dgv)You may initially recognize Die Gestalten as the book publishing company behind many of the zeitgeist ("spirit of the times") fine art graphic, art and architecture books published since 1995.

Jung und Pfeffer

contactWhether it be communication design, corporate campaigns, film, book design or stamps, Jung and Pfeffer (a small firm of about 10 people and two offices) is one of the top graphic design firms in Bremen and Amsterdam. This well-awarded agency has talent, smarts and great graphic design work under its belt... as they should, since both of the partners are professors of design (Eckhard Jung - visual design at HfG, Karlsruhe, and Florian Pfeffer - communication design at College of Art, Bremen). They delicately and professionally treat each one of their projects as "treasures", and the output shows a rich and refined graphic and contemporary sensibility that looks to the future at every opportunity. Great work.... More

Their portfolio is a rich compendium of web works for clients like Red Bull and Hennessy, but offline works include the world's largest victory monument for the Nike Scorpion Football Event.

Thorsten Konrad

Thorsten KonradAs a general rule, we often look at logos to see how good someone is in design, and their photography to see how bad they are. But defying any such convention, here is a digital designer from Germany who makes no area for his identity design, and actually has some really great photos in his photo area! We're sure that means something good... and sure enough, Torres' professional work mostly encompasses web, motion and print design, for which he has been nominated for many awards. Many of his recent projects are now online, and we hope you enjoy this nicely designed web design portfolio.... More

We are A2/17

We are A2/17Hmmm... A2/17. Not exactly the most descriptive name (sounds more like my flight and gate number). So, where to take off and describe this collective of 4 German multimedia artists? Well, they are composed of 4 different types of directors, animators, stop-motion, 2D and 3D artists. So, any visit to A2/17 means you have to visit the sites of: Hendrik Niefeld (concept, direction and animation), Egmont Mayer (3D stop motion artist), Frederik Ring (direction, animation and illustration), and Stefan Schomerus. They are directors. They are designers. They are animators. They are 3D. They are 2D. They are stop motion. Now we understand! They are A2/17... flight boarding now.... More

Liquid

LiquidLiquid is a design agency that embodies a relaxed, soft attitude with a beautifully light portfolio. It's quite appealing, and we love the little fishes, swimming around, but we were a bit challenged by the side-scrolling presentation... contrary to the soothing atmosphere, we just were not quite comfortable leaving our browser in mid-scroll. Also, some of the HTML links are just too light to be read. But beyond that, the work is outstanding. They have accomplished wonders in print and design for books, and the website design and corporate work is not too shabby either! For book covers to brochures, magazines and more, Liquid is the place to dive in a take a swim. Just don't scare the fishes, or get the pages wet.... More

The smooth interface and chic layout make Tenmetal a sturdy soldier in the all's-fair-in-love-and-war-like business of advertising.

Overall, a feel good company that earns the rating: Gut and Gerne!... More
