Berliner Stadtmission

Berliner Stadtmission

The Berlin City Mission is the largest social institution in Berlin.

When we were asked to present their extensive, wonderful work in the form of an annual report, we decided it was about time their stories were told through powerful photographs. We have been photographing and designing ever since, and we’re happy that one of many great outcomes was a poster campaign of unprecedented success, which can now be seen all over Berlin every year.

Das Prinzip Apfelbaum

Das Prinzip Apfelbaum

When talking about inheriting for a good cause, you're talking about death and money.

Or in other words - about planting in your own autumn so that others may reap in spring. Das Prinzip Apfelbaum — Mein Erbe tut Gutes. In 2013 we developed the name, look & feel of the initiative, which started with 5 NGOs and today has over 20 member organisations. Since then things have progressed: a website, all printed matter as well as an exhibition, a catalogue and a regular online magazine, which we developed in friendly collaboration with the agency DFC, whose branding & website we got to create along the way. 🤜 🤛

KKHS

KKHS

Kirchenkreis Hildesheim-Sarstedt asked itself how a church with all its history can present itself today.

We answered: like this. Thanks to Felix Bork for kindly sketching Johannes Bugenhagen, who in 1542 was surprised how well the people of Hildesheim knew the forbidden songs of the Reformation when he founded the KKHS - and made it a force for equal education and social welfare.

International Justice Mission

International Justice Mission

IJM is a global organization partnering with local justice systems all around the world to free people trapped in slavery.

And we're fighting with them, best we can. Since 2017, we've been developing their strategic solutions, branding, printed material and online campaigns. The Instagram #freedomcount works like this: whenever a person in the world is freed from slavery, IJM posts a blue post 🟦. With this simple mechanic IJM now reaches a vast audience, with more and more supporters joining the good cause with their time and resources. Be part of it!

Strassenfeger

Strassenfeger

Strassenfeger is a fundamental part of Berlin.

It was probably Germany's best known street paper until 2018 — when production was put on hold. Actually, Strassenfeger is and remains much more: an emergency shelter, a housing project, healthy leftover meals — and great people fighting the good fight. We were happy to lend them a helping hand with a fresh new look. And warm hats, made of virgin wool. And hopefully soon we’ll see the revival of a street paper!

Social Social

Social Social

We aim to make social causes successful in social media.

So with our claim "MAKE SOCIAL SOCIAL!" we conducted a series of studies with our friends Kemmler Kemmler that examine the social media activities of NGOs. This initiative turned into a full-service agency that develops campaigns on all platforms. We now have a great team working on projects for the Diakonie, the EU, the Bethel Foundation, the Red Cross, the NABU, and a bank robbery - to name a few. And we’re just getting started.

EKD Zukunftsforum 2020

EKD Zukunftsforum 2020

The future may bring the church less members. And less money.

So this raises an essential question: what will the church of the future offer its people? And what could a future church look like? The EKD Future Forum 2020 is on a mission to deal with these and other issues. While developing visual resonance for the conference, our new foundation SOCIAL SOCIAL threw itself into a hotly debated digital storm.

WWF Weltwald

WWF Weltwald

Ohne Wald keine Welt.

So lautet die Formel, die wir für den WWF entwickelt haben, um dem bewussten Umgang mit den globalen Wäldern die gegebene Dringlichkeit zu verleihen. Und in unserem Namen für die Aktion schwingt die Lösung gleich mit: WWF Weltwald. In Zusammenarbeit mit der DFC wächst nun die entsprechende Kampagne. Und hoffentlich genug Bäume.

Literaturhaus St. Jakobi Hildesheim

Literaturhaus St. Jakobi Hildesheim

St. Jacobi Hildesheim is where writers and readers come together.

We chose a symbol for this interaction: the highlighter. Since 2013 it's been changing its colour with the season — like the printing plates in Hildesheim. This light and bright approach resonates in a particularly weighty place: the 500-year-old pilgrims' church seems to be firmly attached to the city in which it stands. A special project for all of us who’ve been there.

midi

midi

There is new department linking the Diakonie and the EKD - and it is called midi.

This youthful little boat is intended to link the two large tankers — and accompany and guide them on their joint, promising journey. We joined forces with our new agency SOCIAL SOCIAL to help this project with the overall look and design — as well as producing stunning Imagery.

Sharehaus Refugio

Sharehaus Refugio

Old Berliners and newcomers: at Refugio, long time residents live and work with people who have recently had to leave flee their homes and are new to Germany.

This co-living and -working space offers strong team spirit and strong coffee. Sharehaus Refugio was founded by Sven & Elke and is part of the Berlin City Mission. We joined as part of the core team for the first few years and gave them a fresh look and all-new website. Our favourite project: the front façade — where we gold-plated the tags and bombings, in the spirit of hope - that fractures, no matter biographical or urban, can be turned into something good.
