a small amendment to the english language —
a branding story.

The problem started with a cultural gap. Our design firm’s name lends easily to misspelling for non-German speakers. Many emails to us in the past were usurped by the Mailer Demon, stealing viable business away with a soundless snicker.

Retaliation

Fangohr stamps

We designed a logo that teaches English speakers how to spell our name, and in turn, approhpriated any oh sounds we so please.

These stamps were devised for our one year anniversary. “No” was reserved for anyone under 21.

Cohrporate identity

The goal for our identity: mesh German design with NY style. NYC subway meets German flag. We added an inverse red to rule out overly patriotic impressions.

Promotional material:
Brohchure

We published these matte brochures as promotional materials. Varnished with graphs and infographics, they tell of our then-recent work. At one point, we had taken on a project at an hourly rate of 3.11 USD (rounded up).

This material proves that we need your business.

2008 Fangohr Business Cards
From keyboards to coffee mugs to bundles of wires, our third run of cards displayed what was on our desks. We waited until the desk took on the characteristic of its owner until we framed it.

You are on a rock, flying through space at an unimaginable speed. Don’t take that for granted.

Happy new year!

Neue Grotesk

When Berthold Foundry wanted close to $10,000 to embed Akzidenz Grotesk, our house typeface, into our site, we decided to design our own.

Say ‘helloh’ to Neue Grotesk.
