Adobe Hidden Treasures: Bauhaus Dessau Initials Hamburg

  • Adobe Hidden Treasures: Bauhaus Dessau. 
    Initials Hamburg

    Welcome to a special project celebrating the campaign Adobe Hidden Treasures: Bauhaus Dessau.
    Idea & creation by Anna Fahrmaier (Typejockeys) & Birgit Palma on behalf of Adobe. 

    The Concept.
    Creation of initial letter artworks inspired by Bauhaus and based on the new created typefaces
    of the Adobe Hidden Treasures: Bauhaus Dessau campaign. Together with the invited guests of the #FutureOfDesign Tour with Scott Belsky on June 13th in Hamburg, we designed individual
    artworks with the respective initials of the guests. The artwork can be shared via social media by
    using the hashtag #AdobeHiddenTreasures to print it via hashtag printer.
  • To design the artworks, we created templates for the background and initials using Creative Cloud.
    These templates can be adapted and modified on-site based on individual preferences (shapes, colours, strokes, arrangement...). The result is a number of unique artworks that combine modern creativity
    with the timeless approaches of the Bauhaus.
