Heimatdesign is a platform and showcase for young design in the region. The magazine introduces the local design scene of the Ruhr area. Their 15th issue is dedicated to the topic of “failure”.
On its cover, we manipulated a picture from the magazine with the help of the Processing software.
The typographic concept plays with the contrast between Ludovic Balland’s “Stanley” and Tomáš Brousil’s “Urban Grotesk”. The characteristic Stanley serifs underline the extremely graphic look of the layout.
The Ruhr district’s design scene is underestimated. So let’s present the wonderful work of its best designers.
The visual language communicates with the magazine’s concept: 1. Whether illustration, infographics or photography: all images are as clean and minimal as possible. Backgrounds are reduced to become calm, graphic surfaces. Visible lines in the background follow geometric shapes. 2. A detail in the picture is altered through retouching. The flawless appearance of the motif is thus disturbed and underlines the theme of “failure”.
