Ergänzend werden die historischen Positionen eines Joseph Beuys, Max Bill und Dieter Rams im Kontext der aktuellen Debatten neu reflektiert und so entsteht eine kurzweilige und gehaltvolle  Positionsbestimung.

Pretty Ugly

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The painting The Young Ladies of Avignon by Picasso was initially scorned but is now considered to be seminal to the development of both cubism and modern art. The dissonance and complex rhythm structures of Stravinsky’s ballet music The Rite of Spring caused a scandal when it premiered, but the composition now ranks among the most important musical works of the twentieth century.

Ready to Print

"Das Buch ist genial! Ich würde es als einziges mit auf die einsame Insel nehmen, um dort weiter entwerfen und produzieren zu können."
 - Erik Spiekermann

Heutzutage müssen Gestalter auch Tätigkeiten aus der Reinzeichnung, Druckvorstufe und Produktion beherrschen. Mit Ready to Print können Gestalter Dateien und Materialien so vorbereiten, dass mit einem optimalen Druck das bestmögliche Ergebnis erzielt werden kann. Detaillierte Beschreibungen helfen, die einzelnen Arbeitsgänge treffsicher zu planen.
