About the Project

The bi-annual magazine published by The German Federal Cultural Foundation. The foundation specifically engages in projects that develop new methods of fostering cultural heritage and tap into the cultural and artistic potential of knowledge required to address social issues and cultural exchange across borders.

Relaunching the magazine as an exciting new journey, rejuvenating the magazine for the first time since its inception almost a decade ago, started with a strong understanding that one needs to engage and understand the story to develop matching, representing design. As a result, the overall format and structure remain almost untouched; instead, the design heavily focuses on each issue’s main theme. The »content first« approach blends uniquely crafted layouts, prominent typography paired with illustrations, and large-scale imagery into a magazine character’s fresh feature pages. The results are individually orchestrated issues offering a unique reading experience.
