Graphic designers who work with arty or poetic content will always tend toward creating something ambiguous but Frankfurt-based duo Doeller & Satter (Sandra Doeller and Michael Satter) handle it with a real brevity of typographic composition, a keen and bright use of colour, formatted for traditional printed matter but with a consistent contemporary edge.
The work sways toward the iconic side of graphics and this suits their portfolio of largely book works and music packaging. When it comes to their autonomous works, most engaging is their indy publication Random Press, the bold and engaging nature of the design spreads to the editorial and zine-like content.
