Made in Essen

“Made in Essen” is a contest for young bands from the Ruhr Area. To cope with the diverse styles of music and the basic concept of a sampler—the different songs add up to a harmonious unity—every band was given a font and a color: The cover shows these individualized band-names merging to a typography sampler. In the inside of the booklet the cover image is dispersed so on each band page the name is readable in the particular font and color.

The project has been awarded with a “Certificate of Typographic Excellence” by the Type Directors Club New York and nominated for the “German Design Award”.
