Silver Nail for »Man störe mir meine Kreise nicht« by Masihne Rasuli
In the category »Editorial Products«, Masihne Rasuli, artistic associate at the Professorship »Image-Text-Conception« and graduate of Visual Communication, can look forward to a Silver Nail. Her master's thesis deals with mathematics: some love it for its clarity and logic, others hate it for its complexity and high degree of abstraction. Rasuli's publication »Man störe mir meine Kreise nicht« (Don't disturb my circles) retells the story of mathematics in a fascinating way with the help of visual design and conveys the wonderful craziness of mathematical geniuses with intelligent humour but scientifically correct. The illustrated card set »Harte Nüsse« complements this with a collection of 23 mathematical phenomena, riddles and paradoxes.
The master's thesis was supervised by Prof. Markus Weisbeck and Dr. Alexander Schwinghammer.
»Die Nachtwachtel« by Leela Dutta receives award in the »Illustration« category
Leela Dutta illustrated and wrote the story »Die Nachwachtel" (The Night Quail) in the project »Ausgeschlafen(?)!« and received an award for it in the category »Illustration«. Her book is about a little night quail that sleeps together with other quails in the night quail forest. She wishes for nothing more than to stay awake all night to see the starry sky. To achieve this, she tries all kinds of concoctions and recipes against sleep - but do they really help? The book is expected to be published by Lucia Publishing later this year.
The work was supervised by Prof. Burkhart von Scheven and Masihne Rasuli.
Award in the category »Editorial Design« for »Drei Esel, Sizilien« by Annika Daub, Hanna Hofmann and Simon Geistlinger
The ADC jury also found the work »Drei Esel, Sizilien« (Three Donkeys, Sicily) by the designer trio Annika Daub, Hanna Hofmann and Simon Geistlinger worthy of an award in the »Editorial Design« category. Their book design goes back to a poem by the lyricist Jan Wagner, who often makes everyday observations of plants and animals the subject of his texts, which he narrates poetically as »breathtaking natural spectacles« (Deutschlandradio Kultur). His style is very associative - the poet jumps from observation to mythology, psychology, the history of mankind... The students made this linguistic style the basis of their design: the poem is told in a whole book, because every word and every punctuation mark gets a scientific footnote. These footnotes in turn get footnotes and so on until a dense web of associations and thought connections emerges, which is additionally staged typographically.
»Drei Esel, Sizilien« was created in the project »groSEs cHaOs« and was also supervised by Prof. Burkhart von Scheven and Masihne Rasuli.
»Type & Feminisms« by Leoni Hommel, Emily Grawitter, Johanna Mehner, Hannah Röbisch and Lina Unger also received an award in the "Editorial Design" category
The students Leoni Hommel, Emily Grawitter, Johanna Mehner, Hannah Röbisch and Lina Unger scored points in the »Editorial Design« category. In a project, they and other course participants designed typefaces and were inspired by ideas and people from feminism. The main aim was to find out how broad the spectrum of feminism is and how typography and typeface design can be connected to and conveyed by the various feminisms. In the following semester, the five students designed the publication »Type & Feminisms«, which individually presents all 17 typefaces and concepts created. The publication was produced using screen printing and offset processes in the printing workshop of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar.
The students were supervised by Stefanie Schwarz, then junior professor for »Typography and Type Design«.
The ADC competition is one of the most prestigious competitions for visual design and is considered the most important creative competition in Germany. The ADC award is one of the most important awards in the field of advertising. The young talent contest is aimed at students of creative disciplines at universities and colleges.
