Atelier Olschinsky  —> following list

Actually it was really hard for me to pick my favorites from this outstanding artwork of  the creative studio Atelier Olschinsky and after I saw the following list I was complety blown away. The studio is based in Vienna founded 2002 by Peter Olschinsky and Verena Weiss. To put ther work in just some adjectives ios quite impossible, but let me try: the art work is vivid, inspiring and futuristic with a huge story telling and because of the visual complexity the graphics seems fragile but at the same time the elements are balanced and gives our visual senses a strong impact.
That is what they say about themselves:
“It is just so important to work as much as you can, to learn and to be open to new things.
The journey is the award.” (Atelier Olschinsky)

“Kurt Weidemann, one of the most influential typographers of the 20th century, died at the age of 88 on March 31st, 2011. Weidemann helped form the identities of companies such as Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Zeiss, and Deutsche Bahn, changing their corporate designs not only for the better, but for the best. After returning from captivity as a prisoner of war in Russia, he took up a career in the fields of graphic design, typography, and moral courage that was second to none.Word came easily to him. His career did not.” (

Shepard Fairey – Obey to the better

February 14th, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Andrea

“Introducing the American artist Shepard Fairey is a bit like explaining whose portrait he famously altered for the “Hope” campaign that was widely used by Barack Obama’s supporters in 2008. Since the mid 1980s he has created outstanding (then: street) art that is strong, iconic and expressive. Shepard Fairey is also a thoughtful, committed, and outspoken activist who revives the artistic virtues of standing up for the freedom of speech and fighting for rational and non-corporate ways of dealing with the issue of copyright. Obey the interview we did with him in Los Angeles in late 2010!” (

Multi Touch Light Table by Gergwerk

August 19th, 2010 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

A very interesting approach to create a graphic user interface for mobile djs. I like the design and the way functionality can be controlled intuitively once you are familiar with the system. Still i can´t really imagine that you can always beatmatch perfectly with just tapping the screen. To make this work, there should be a way of spinning each side to control the record / track with ease..
In my opinion on a professional level this concept is hard to deliver, but for the more private and entertainment sector this stuff is great. Specially with all the mobile devices coming.. Good work!

colourblind design


June 18th, 2010 // No Comments // Posted by Andrea

“Each day, we are surrounded by seemingly insignificant objects, taking them from one place to the other, or leaving them on a table for weeks, without paying any attention to them. We ignore or forget them, using things only when we need to, making sure they don’t interfere or inhabit our space. But what if they were not so stable and subservient? What if they could swivel, bounce or even fly. And what if they did so all at the same time? We want to imagine a place where objects could live and move, harmoniously, and of their own accord. Without interfering with each other these objects would bounce, roll, turn and cross each other’s paths.

This experiment is about re-discovering our daily surroundings. This is the making of the interactive video that was originally made for If You Could Collaborate exhibition.

This video is the making of the interactive film where each object is assigned to a letter on the keyboard, and can be activated or deactivated at any time. To learn more about our process and to play with this interactive desk, go to
