Worlds Unknown

Album design for the German hardcore-punk band AYS. The record was released by End Hits Records in early 2017. Most of the lyrics were written on their Asia tour, so it made sense to take this as a base for the album concept.

I took a handful stories the band had experienced on their previous tours and visualized them in an abstract way. The pre-order, which was limited to 200 pieces, came with a special AYS fortune cookie.

Das Kreative Haus

Hamburg-based agency deepblue networksunites a great variety of creative minds under a single roof. The challenge: How do we raise awareness for deepblue’s »Creative House« and motivate new talents to join their team? We visualized the Creative House by illustrating each of the eight letters of »D E E P B L U E« in an entertaining and distinctive way, inspired by the architectural design of the company’s building. We added tiny characters to every letter, which are all based on real stories of their employees. In this way each letter represents a department and shows fun animations of the everyday work.
