Turn around! The Porsche tête-bêche

Hardcover with double book cover, cover is single-colour black print and matt cellophaned, inspiration pages integrated into the notebook block, individualised front and back endpapers with customer logo, A5 slim format

The beauty of tête-bêche books: technique and perspective can be changed in-between. One half of this black and white version is a classic notebook with a practical dot grid - for normal daily use. For all the moments in which a creative or productive boost is urgently needed, simply flip over and scribble on the blank pages of the other half. Experiment and get motivated by nice illustrations and lettering!
By the way, behind this experimental book project is not a young creative agency, but a well-known traditional company: Porsche.

Hardcover made of special cotton containing paper, 2 coloured individually printed, with a neon coloured elastic strap, 192 4/4 coloured individually printed and inspiring inside pages for scribbles, ideas, thoughts with an integrated mini-flip-book, slim A5 special paper size

Plain white pages are like a radiant blue sky without a cloud in sight – pretty boring. This isn’t the case in the themed Cloud Book from our nuuna collection. Here you will discover clouds on every page. Big clouds, little clouds, thick and bright, round or frayed. Some resemble cotton balls, others look like cauliflower; every cloud in the Cloud Book is unique. It is simply perfect to write down thoughts, ideas and visions in the sky. This is for creative people, meteorologists, pilots, philosophers, cloud computing specialists and daydreamers. And if you can’t think of anything? Then just watch the clouds pass by. Let them float past you like thoughts. But beware! Some clouds can unleash tremendous brain storms. For a corporate identity version of the Cloud Book with individual branding, please contact us.

Notebook with Shortstories concerning the subject “Dream of Flying”

Hardcover made of light grey linen, cover debossed with an iridescent hologram-foil, rounded corners, dark-blue elastic, Banderole fold around the book cover, full coloured endleaves, notebook block combined with 4/4 colored + 2 spot coloured printed image pages, accordion pocket in the back endleaves, A5 paper size

Until today, the unattainability of the horizon, the mysterious glittering of the stars and the vastness of the cosmos has not lost its magic. With this in mind, the Salzburg event location, Hangar-Sieben from Red Bull, made the “fascination with flying” to their concept. The notebook’s interior offers fitting themes: from Greek mythology to the DC-6B propeller machine and Da Vinci’s sketches of the flight behaviour of birds. The text spreads within the notebook block as well as the images are printed on heavier 4-pagers than the other 16-pagers. Another highlight: the detachable calendar-poster

The inner part of this notebook is a real playground. Just before the employees can develop their ideas about the company’s visions on a plain book block made of recycled paper, image pages at the beginning, playfully convey the company’s philosophy: accompanied by precise and short sentences, punched out or with UV-varnish printed and therefore sublime motifs, a small picture puzzle to fill out, a folding instruction to cut out or a printed paper ruler to take out for a different kind of company presentation.

Journal for the Kickoff Meeting

White softtouch booklet with vibrant pink silkscreen and high-quality Singer Stitch Sew, book block made of recycled paper, individual image fold- out pages or pages with a stencil template, slim A5 paper size

On the basis of texts, graphics and tables, this writing journal not only efficiently and motivatingly provides the team with all the important information about the new project. Besides hard facts, the book also offers a necessary lightness with playful moments: for instance, it contains a fold-out page about the aims of the projects or a template with proclamations such as “Bullshit!”, “No.” or, “Awesome.” This way, the individual opinion can be very impulsively expressed during the working progress.

Telekom Sea-Hero: Against the forgetting play – and write

The Sea Hero Quest game, which is available on the App Store, allows anonymous data regarding spatial orientation and navigation to be collected and essential dementia research done. The notebook for this particular project will feature an ‘old’ treasure map as well as images with elaborate illustrations and handwritten texts.
Here, the fight against forgetfulness is hardly better suited than with analogue idea storage. After all, handwritten notes do not only last forever in a book, but are also proven to last a long time in one’s mind.
