Published by the Bauhaus Kooperation Berlin Dessau Weimar, bauhaus now is the official magazine of the Bauhaus centenary 2019.
Brands need design and language to breathe. The magazine bauhaus now shows how we network both with each other. Our designers and editors worked closely on the dramatic staging of stories, formats and visuals from the very first minute of the project. But we didn’t think in trades, we thought in roles.
Designers developed content, editors worked on the bauhaus now look. Together they built up a network of authors and artists who shared our idea of a modern Bauhaus magazine. This becomes visible through the depth of the details: the typography and typesetting reflect the anchor theme in each of the three editions. Despite their individuality, the magazines form one entity in terms of content and visuals. Photography, graphics and journalistic formats don’t steal each other’s show but rather stick up for each other.
The fonts in use are Lab Grotesque by Letters from Sweden as the all over typeface in issue one. For each of the subsequent issues, we added a new headline font. For issue two it is Stadt by Michael Cina and for the third and final issue it is Totentanz by extrabrut.shop. See and read more on Stan Hema’s website.
