Website and corporate design of Förderverein Melaten e.V. The organisation aims to revitalise the burial culture in Cologne’s central cemetery, the Melaten-Friedhof. With more than 50.000 graves, it is the biggest cemetery in Cologne, Germany.
I designed the website, making heavy use of Massimo Grafia (Nice to Type) in two weights (Bold and Regular, no italics) throughout.
The business cards make a little play on the cemetery theme, showing unfinished information about the the card owner. Their name is followed by an asterisk and a birth year, as if the card is waiting to be finished with a year of death, like the list of information about people buried on the Melaten-Friedhof that can be found on the website.
