In this month’s focus theme of corporate identities we present a particularly wide spectrum of examples from across a variety of sectors. How do you give a traditional bank a contemporary new look? Or make Twitter into a tangible experience? And what kind of visual interpretation is best for a language institute? Also featured in this new issue of novum are Studio Grau’s prize-winning designs, Diana Barbu’s delightful illustrations, the well-travelled designer Ginette Caron and the creatives at studio [Rowelt], serving international clients from a village location. Then, in part 2 of our series on »New Typography«, we take a detailed look at the Bauhaus and the influence it still exerts to this day. Last, but not least, another surprise in store this month is the cover, with a subtly embossed paper from Fedrigoni. Enjoy!
