where can i find happiness? – kopfstand, magazine, editorial design, hamburg, 2022

well that’s easy: on the pages of these magazines from publishers zeit-verlag. they ask children really important questions. and since good questions are the starting point of all philosophy, the s in the word kopfstand (german for headstand) is mirrored horizontally, turning it upside down, and hovers above a dot, looking for all the world like a question mark. When composing the layout, all we had to do was juxtapose the engaging copy from our client miriam holzapfel and the quirky, appealing illustrations from shiven sven wang – which turned out to be child’s play.
