In an unusual project, students from the Technical University of Dortmund and the Justus Liebig University of Gießen have focused on their cities photographically. Now the result is available in perhaps the most urban print medium of all: a newspaper.
In the seminar led by Felix Dobbert, we developed a design grid with the students. In addition to the text pages I designed, the students each lay out their photographs on a double page. With texts by Niklas Gliesmann, Claudia Hattendorff, Barbara Welzel und Andreas Zeising. Printed by Mittelhessisches Druck- und Verlagshaus.
TT Nooks is used as the headline font and gives a modern look to the usual newspaper design. GT Sectra is used for body text, revealing its special shapes only on second glance. The rigid grid of the newspaper is broken up by twisted headlines and broad quotations.
