Besides the ‘classic’ Graphic Design, Corporate Design and Web Design – further services:


Layout and typesetting
We also design and layout according to your existing corporate designs and stylesheets – quickly, reliably and precisely until ready for printing. In addition to our agency clients (freelance work), our regular customers in this area include foundations, universities and publishing houses in Germany, France, the USA and Switzerland, as well as the city of Berlin, art institutions and larger corporations.

Scientific and foreign language typesetting, indexing
In particular in the complex field of linguistic reference literature, we have extensive experience across all language areas, including formula setting, direct communication/correction coordination with the authors as well as professional indexing and glossaries/table layouts/graphics and much more – always with the best possible logical structure and readability of the content in mind. Full service up to printing, if required including cover and layout design – currently e.g. for De Gruyter Mouton Berlin and many universities/scientists worldwide.

Image optimization, photography, photo design and business graphics/illustration
We engage trusted photographers for advertising photography, product photos, portraits, architectural photography and documentation of artworks and exhibitions. Our image processing is 'state of the art': from careful image retouching and adaptation for perfect printing to elaborate photomontages - everything is possible, even the seemingly impossible - e.g. colour reproduction in the art field and the professional enhancement of amateur photos/snapshots. Well designed and structured diagrams, charts and business graphics of all kinds are also part of our daily work. In addition, various illustrators can be consulted as required.

Editorial services
Small mistakes can unfortunately have a big effect. If you are not sure, ask for advice on how to improve your text and/or take advantage of our correction and consistency check. In addition to spelling and grammar (if you wish), have your texts checked for style, coherence and relevance of the information.

In addition to English (British or US-American), we also provide or arrange translations into Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Chinese and Korean. Other languages on request.

Freelance (com)missions
We ease the workload of agencies and graphic design colleagues at peak times, for short periods or with a service contract – with our extensive experience in all areas of visual communication and artwork production. Our agency clients have included for example Scholz & Friends Berlin, Gruppe 96 and Interface Design Berlin.

Company and family chronicles
Beyond the pure design and production, we provide – in cooperation with authors, historians and photographers – assistance in the processing of existing material and the creation of texts and new image material for your family or company chronicle. Usually a complex undertaking, but we help you to structure the complex past in a comprehensible way for all readers and to present it appropriately designed.
