»minimalist« is a visionary design studio – we passionately design the analogue and digital content of tomorrow.

 

Together with you we create new ideas, optimize the results down to the last detail and are only satisfied when you are. Don’t hesitate to contact us.

Simplify. Ambiance. Details.

For over 14 years we have been working successfully for national and international companies (China, USA, EU), public institutions, photographers, magazines, galleries and museums, while being true to Dieter Rams’ design principle »less but better«. An essential basis of our work is to always communicate with our customers as equals and to fulfill every task with the right mixture of creativity and the necessary realism. For us, good design is: honest – unobtrusive – understandable – innovative – consistent – emotional.

Our expertise covers in editorial design (book and magazine design), corporate design and, increasingly, user interface design (automotive and mobile devices). The design of our work is characterised by a minimalist approach that we have reinterpreted. We do not understand this to mean a basic simplification, but rather minimalism in terms of the uniqueness of the implementation and the function in detail. We want to show that what of value is, to be seen, discovered and experienced, recognition through an individual design and the resulting thoughtful communication of your identity.

We work solution-oriented and reliably on the implementation of your ideas – from the first concept to the final presentation.

IBA LOGbook review at the dbz

I just got the message from Ursula Baus (frei04 publizistik) that the dbz is now also talking about the IBA's LOG Book No1: "Nicely done, at any rate. Graphically demanding but apparently very relaxed." (Benedikt Kraft, dbz) I am very pleased about this…

My SmartWatch 2034

Apparently Apple will introduce an "iWatch" tomorrow. What has been seen so far does not convince me and since I have been playing with some concepts in my imagination for a long time, I have adapted this short hand to a SmartWatch in…

Dieter Rams: 10 Theses

In order to keep up to date, I stumbled, as so often, on Dieter Rams, whose philosophy has a great influence on my work ("Less but better"). I cheekily claim that the "10 theses for good design" are also applicable to interface design…
