Stevens Pass – Tube City Rack Card
Stevens Pass – Tube City Rack Card Tube-City-Rack-2005-12-20-V2_Page_2
Together with my friend and business partner Giraffe Design, Seattle a new print media is in production for Stevens Pass – one of the largest ski resorts in Washington, USA. This time I designed a rack card which shows all the information you need about the ski resort’s fun park called Tube City where you can ride down the hills on tubes – this really looks like fun! Hope to check it out soon myself…
The photos are shot by Seattle-based Chase Jarvis. He’s been creating stunning photography for mega-brands like Nike, Volvo, Subaru, T-Mobile, Microsoft, as well nearly every ski company, snowboard manufacturer, sports eyewear brand, and niche active lifestyle company on the planet.
Website launched for Ines Rosenholm
Today, I published a new website for the Berlin actress Ines Rosenholm. She played at several theaters in Germany and Belgium such as the Theater Wechselbad in Dresden or the Morgenstern Theater in Berlin. She's a very talented and fascinating person. Check out her website at
Christmas at the pool
On Sunday afternoon I was at a pretty nice christmas market here in Berlin-Prenzlauerberg. It was in the old Stadtbad Oderbergerstraße which used to be a swimming-pool. But now it's a venue for all kinds of events such as art exhibitions, concerts and parties. And this Sunday the guys from 3&33 organized their annual designers christmas market at that wonderful place. It was very crowded but you could still listen to some good music, nice visuals and buy some very cool and unique christmas presents and have a chat with the designers. Watch a small clip here and don't miss it next year!
iBook do-it-yourself hard drive replacement
After my iMac G5 crashed last week (power supply out of order), my iBook’s hard drive crashed last Saturday, too. It did a good job for almost 3 years, but now really wasn't a good time to let me down… So I had to buy a new hard drive and replace it by myself (no more warranty). Man, it was a challenging job, but the Fixit Guide at helped me a lot. Took me about an hour to open the iBook and replace the hard drive – if I hadn’t forgotten the little power connector in the end, which made me go through the whole process again… Finally, my iBook’s working fine again, now with the new drive even significantly quieter.
Design Basics at L4
From Monday 6th to Friday 16th of December I'm teaching a 10-days workshop at L4 – Institute for Digital Communications. The students learn the very basics of design, layout, typography and corporate design. Here's a sneak insight of the students' work on their second day…
PAULA live in Berlin
Yesterday I went to a PAULA show. They played at the Maria in Berlin – the final gig of their fall 2006 tour. I’ve known these guys since 2000 and create the website for them. It was a pretty good rock show with front singer Elke Brauweiler who really enjoyed the evening with the band and the fans. The venue was pretty crowded and the fans liked the new interpretations of their hits like Jimmy and Als es passierte as well as their new songs from the current album Ruhig Blut. I only had my cell phone with me, so the video and sound quality is very poor, but watch this if you like to get an idea of the show.
I met Berend who was formerly the so-called mastermind behind PAULA (together with Elke), too. He’s just finished a small Germany tour with his band and is back in Berlin producing the album for guther (morr music) - a project he’s doing together with his steady Julia Guther. Wonderful music! I had the chance to listen to a few songs last night and I’m really looking forward to the release of the new album. You can listen to the last album I Know You Know here.
