I’m very, very happy to announce that my thesis project “Von Luftlinien, Flammenbögen & Speedloops” was awarded the Walter Tiemann Prize!
The ceremony will be held at Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst [Academy of Visual Arts] Leipzig on Thursday, 13 March – on the occasion of the 2008 Leipzig Book Fair.
The Walter Tiemann Prize, given every two years by the Society for the Promotion of Printmaking and Book Art at the HGB Leipzig, is an international award to recognise outstanding book design and typography.
Following Kaspar Mühlemann (2002), Daniela Mirabella & Rebecca Pfaffhauser (2004) and Matilda Plöjel (2006), this year’s laureate is – me, hooray!
The work will be exhibited alongside the other winning entries – I’ll be pleased to meet you there (or at Leipzig Book Fair).
