2016: »Blaue Zipfel«

Illustration, Text, Editorial Design

Tipped off? Feeling blue? – a shark in the bathtub.
The master´s degree will take three semesters, you can illustrate, write and design. You will fathom out the world. This sounds demanding. And it is. But mostly, it should be a lot of fun for you and for us. We will catch the Mainz Mombach bus till the end of the line, get off and wonder why people are constantly drinking out of water bottles. Or we will roam the intricate paths of the digital world, looking for the sword to crack the algorithmic knot. Regaining your footing from the analog and digital journey will be done by analysing these worlds. The next step involves concepts and applicable ideas. And then you will get down to the nitty-gritty.
