Bertelsmann – Corporate Book

Eleven stories about creativity

CREATING A BOOK ABOUT THE BERTELSMANN GROUP

We talked to teams and individuals within the Bertelsmann Group and asked them “What’s your story?”
From this, we created eleven fascinating stories: from an author who has signed 150,000 books, to a remarkable interview with Pelé, to shrimp fishermen in Alaska.

Creativity starts in the mind. Artists channel that creativity and shape it on the pages of their notebooks.

I took the aesthetic of an artist’s sketchbook and combined it with a more traditional book layout. The sketch-like illustrations and photographs, classically-staged with added coloured brushstrokes, combines loose, preliminary sketches with more refined design elements for a complete and imaginative final product.

The success of Bertelsmann as a media company rests on the creativity of its employees. Whether they are program makers, producers, publishers, journalists, entrepreneurs or engineers, their ideas inspire millions around the world. We brought the people behind this success into the spotlight.

NucleAnts – Tabletop Game

Creating a tabletop game

CREATING A DICE/CARD GAME FROM THE SCRATCH

A friend of mine is crazy about board games. So am I. But he is into it so much that he transfers experiences like travelling or dreams into game ideas. He creates prototype after prototype that we test and share with friends. And then there was this one prototype that everybody really enjoyed. So we were thinking why not take it to the next level.
NucleAnts is a fun fast playing dice and card game. And it’s about ants that survived the nuclear apocalypse. This is why I ended up drawing a lot of creepy ants and still do. I also started with the branding, but it’s still developing – so more coming soon…

NUCLEANTS

Mankind has failed. It’s another lifeform that reigns in the contaminated ruins of their lost civilizations: the great ant queens and their ever mutating breed!
In deep nuclear winter, their offspring fights for survival, mutates and evolves. All to serve and tender their queen with precious atomic waste, for her to become the all-powerful ant empress.
