As you may know from the recent Jennifer Cirpici interview, we are engaging with the amazingly impressive talent of the Superthemes users from our community.
Today we present David Latz and Steven Wulf from Dortmund, that we eventually met thanks to Pop Design Festival. These two young folks designed the visual appearance for the festival on behalf of the very cool Heimatdesign agency, also based in Dortmund, using our Evolutive Theme: a great opportunity for them to express themselves by means of several different media. We really love the idea of the festival.
The guys are both freshly graduated with Bachelor of Arts and are working as freelancers graphic designers since a few years – with focus on corporate design, web design, typography and illustration. At the moment they’re busy with founding a first own studio together with two other great designers they met during their studies. Look at this amazing work and reach out the guys to engage in spectacular project like these! we really loved the work those guys have done for the Pop Design Festival!
[superthemes] Ciao David and Steven! after having introduced yourself, we especially look for knowing your opinion on the Evolutive theme. We really look forward to impressions and suggestions. That’s interesting especially since you used the theme for a non-portfolio use case.
[David and Steven] Our main reason for your theme: it’s highly customizable – integrating our own design was done relatively quick and comfortably. There are also some important choice options for the way the content is displayed, e.g. headlines can be hidden or colors can be changed. So the high flexibility of the theme is great, you should keep and extend such options in your work. [ed: we're doing it for sure!]
[superthemes] Could you tell us more about the design endeavour regarding the realization of pop design festival homepage? As said, that’s pretty interesting for us since our product isn’t being really used as a portfolio site in this case instead is used as a festival content wall and this is amazing.
[David and Steven] We started with the design of the print media, at first with a program print folder. We were looking for a high flexible and grid based theme for the web realization of the pop design festival’s visual concept in order to use the same grid design we were still using in print media. Although the site is thought as a portfolio container, it brought us all preferences for creating and sorting the content for the festival as we needed. As the festival is divided into two parts (Cologne and Dortmund), the website is also splitted this way, visual divided by the different usage of the two main colors.
[superthemes] Would you tell us more about the festival in itself?
[David and Steven] The pop design festival is an international festival for design, pop, urban art, fashion and urbanism. It’s about the creative exchange of two cities and fully loaded with workshops, concerts, exhibitions, performances, parties, coworking and other contemporary creative events. We think it’s an important project for the region and a great chance for the growing creative community of our city, a good place to meet other creative people, get inspired and exchanged.
Wow. We can’t avoid to make our best wishes to David and Steven for their professional work in the future, with funding the studio as well. Keep on guys!
