A variety of illustrations we did over the last two years. The techniques used reach from pure handmade to Illustrator and Photoshop composings.
Early in 2012 we had the opportunity to design a concept for a german The Hundreds website.
Handcrafted in Cologne from solid alder wood or solid acacia wood, the Sy1t Wardrobe / Sy1t Bike Rack is a perfect way to keep your everyday essentials.
We had the opportunity to design the Decals for 2013 Wethepeople Trust BMX Bike. Its a traditional Americana/Native American theme and we are very pleased how it turned out.
Halle 59 is a Skate and Bmx Inddor park in cologne. We were asked to rework their entire Corporate Identity including logos, website, merch and their annual brochure for a re-opening in 2012.
3 Designers 1 Project.
The Ludwig Forum in Aachen gave out a contest to create limited design objects for their Museums Shop.
The Theme was “Space and Architecture” which could be interpreted completely freely.
Over the last year we did a couple of shirts, beanies and hoodies for various brands such as people’s store and wethepeople. Some were for there standard collections and some for special events such as the wethepeople mexico tour.
The 2012 wethepeople website ins brand new an all shiny. We created a complete new information architecture, a custom blog, custom buttons, logos and an unique usability. the landing page is divided into three sections: Completes, Hardgoods and Blog so the visitor can choose right from the start which aspect of the brand he wants to explore.
At Almond we were responsible for the whole pre-production process of the shoe collections and worked in all parts of the product creation cycle.

A sweet little printed Poster and a lasered ply-wood business card we did to promote our studio.
Here is a little Flyer we did for A-GAME and their Sample Sale in May 2012.
We designed bicycle parts for the bmx brands salt, saltplus, wethepeople and éclat, such as tyres,
grips, brakes, stems or handlebars and developed these through all the stages of the design process from the concept to the finished product.
We asked ourselves the question:”what happens to all the images, logos, icons and slogans we as designers create when they are used out in the real world?” What kind of impact do htey have on the people who see them every day for most of their lives, from birth to death? I read a lot of Sytem- and Mediatheory like Debord, Fiske, Luhmann and Derry and the essence of all their thoughts and writing for me was that those images and icons are the mortar of our societys (western world), the things we all can fully relate to and identify with.
We designed 3 of the wethepeople complete bikes for 2012. In the process we created the decals, thought about colorways and took the final productshots.
The bikes range from the entry level Reason over the mid level Crysis to elite Envy. The folks at wethepeople are very much into detail and quality so this was a very exciting and fun job to do.
Various Logos we did for different companies, photographers and designers.
For the People´s Store we did a complete identity overhaul with a new set of logos, apparel and a brand new website.
