Danke, Thank you and Tack


96 years – that's how long novum has been writing design history. It even survived a World War. In well over 1,000 issues, it has inspired and informed designers around the world. This is a proud legacy. Sadly, now it is time to say goodbye.

In this final issue of novum we once again present to you an exciting selection of designers and creative studios, and in the novum+ section, we explore orientation systems for diverse applications, among them a community centre and BER, Berlin´s long awaited new airport.

novum 01/02.21 is also available for 9,99 Euro as PDF

The cover

One of the more remarkable facts about novum is that it has always had an international readership. And so, with this last cover, we say thank you – in all the native tongues of our readers.

For the paper, we choose Pergraphica Infinite Black in 300 gsm from Mondi. This fine paper is not only very pleasant to the touch, it is also behaves very well in print finishing. Hot foil embossing by Gräfe Druckveredelung sets off the motif beautifully; for the coating we chose the brand new shade Mastered Green from the Trend Collection by Kurz.
