“Aesthetics are regarded in a philosophical sense, communications in a social context and design in an experimental manner.” The studio “Fons Hickmann m23” is among today's most awarded design studios. It varies a lot in size and scope: “There are seven of us at the moment, sometimes there are four, sometimes fourteen” says m23. The staff originates from Austria, Germany and Switzerland. The Berlin studio focuses on the design of complex communication systems. Its activities include corporate design, book and poster design, magazine design and digital media. The work is conceptual and analytical but at the same time has an enormous sense of humour. Fons Hickmann is professor for Graphic Design / Communication Design at the Berlin University of the Arts. He is a member of the ADC, TDC New York and the AGI Alliance Graphique Internationale.

The second issue of the »dialog« magazine for Diakonie Düsseldorf which we designed, has arrived. In this issue, it is concerned about the arrival of immigrants and refugees in the society, integration and barriers, which we need to overcome together, and above all, how our society handles the support for achievements and problems of the arrival of immigrants and refugees.

A week has passed in a flash! On last Friday, there was a meaningful reading soirée »Die verschwundene Stadt« to commemorate the history of the Tiergarten quarter in the church of St. Matthäus, Berlin.

For this cultural event, M23 designed a 30-meter-long paper roll with historical texts and images about the Tiergarten district, which is complemented on three different evenings and assembled altogether into a 100-meter-long timeline.

Have a look and enjoy your weekend!

Fons Hickmann in der novum 09.19

Wissenschaftskommunikation leidet häufig darunter, dass die inhaltliche Seriosität in eine ehrfurchtgebietende optische Strenge gekleidet wird, die eine Lektüre der durchaus spannenden Themen erschwert. Dass es auch anders geht, beweist Albert – grafisch konzipiert von Fons Hickmann m23 und Raúl Kokott.

The Futuro Sociale congress series addresses the future of social work. It is launched by the Büro für soziale Innovation of Diakonie Düsseldorf, a welfare organization. Speakers from various fields were invited to the inaugural congress to discuss social welfare issues concerning refugees, children, and the elderly. We designed a poster campaign for this event as well as materials for attendees.

10 years Pina Bausch Foundation

The dancer and choreographer Pina Bausch left behind an eclectic and an extraordinarily comprehensive artistic heritage. After her passing in 2009, her son, Salomon Bausch, founded the non-profit Pina Bausch Foundation, which administers her collective artistic legacy with the purpose of making it more accessible to the general public. To commemorate the decade of its existence, we designed a dedicated poster campaign. The capital X in the centre symbolises the ten year anniversary. Simultaneously it provides the stage for exhibiting the Foundation’s archive and collection stock and embedding them into the narrative context.

Those who will not be able to experience it first-hand will have a chance to follow »The Finals« live on ARD and ZDF.

Check out the 2019–2020 season brochure for RIAS Kammerchor Berlin, featuring work by Djuno Tomsni. The RIAS Kammerchor chamber choir was founded in 1948 and is one of Berlin’s most prestigious musical institutions. The choir has been the first to perform a number of pieces, and its repertory includes work by Arvo Pärt, György Ligeti, and Max Reger. RIAS has received numerous international honors and awards for musical excellence. M23 designed a brand-new corporate identity for all of the choir’s media in honor of its 70th anniversary.

We designed the Dialog magazine for Diakonie Düsseldorf. Dialog takes up issues to ignite a social debate and participate in current discussions. In the process we aim to create a bold blend of decidedly Christian and socially active interpretations. Dialog is colourful and stimulating. We introduce committed characters, inspiring examples and new approaches in the social affairs.

As a rule white papers offer subject-specific perspectives, concrete proposals and forecasts in a matter-of-fact presentation form. The publication “Radiology in Germany. A White Paper” by Deutsche Röntgengesellschaft e.V. goes far beyond these characteristics. The articles authored by fifteen specialists active in the clinical and scientific spheres open up a broad spectrum of topics as well as textual and graphic representations. To give such content a suitable form, we designed a high-quality book that includes 248 pages, extensive photo series and an elaborately embellished cover.

For the 95th anniversary issue of the graphic design magazine Novum World of Graphic Design, Fons Hickmann designed its cover. It is a reinterpretation of a Walter Riemer cover from 1926 and shows the Berlin Bear in a Razzle Dazzle camouflage pattern. Inspired by this pattern, we used it for several posters and objects before. Visit our website to see more Razzle Dazzle!

Slanted Blog Magazine wrote a review on the Albert Magazines we designed for the Einstein Stiftung Berlin. Thank you for the nice words.

»Wie gestaltet man Wissenschaft?« Das war die erste Frage als ein neues Magazin für die Einstein Stiftung Berlin konzipiert wurde. Hat Wissen einen Sexappeal und wie sieht der aus? Ziel der Albert Einstein Stiftung Berlin ist es, Spitzenforschung nicht nur zu fördern, sondern auch darüber zu reden. Deshalb ist Albert, das Journal der Einstein Stiftung, entstanden. Es erscheint einmal im Jahr und wurde bereits mehrfach ausgezeichnet.

“How to design science?” This essential question was the starting point in the process of creating a concept for the new print magazine of the Einstein Foundation Berlin. Can knowledge also have sex appeal and if so, how would it look like? By now the Einstein Foundation has published four issues of the Albert magazine. Each of them covers a different scientific area of study such as mathematics, natural sciences, ancient studies and the latest edition is dedicated to the topic of new departures.
Designer Fons Hickmann m23 and art director Raúl Kokott collaborated on the conception and the design of the magazine and their creative efforts were widely acclaimed and recognized by designers and scholars alike. The Einstein Foundation Berlin has the following raison d’être: “Not only do we want to support cutting-edge scientific research, we also want to talk about it.” Fons Hickmann M23 was commissioned to take over the design of the magazine’s fourth issue dedicated to the topic of new departures; future editions will highlight other scientific fields of study and the ways they are being pursued in the Einstein Berlin headquarters.
