Fattorie Romeo del Castello

This Sicilian vineyard at the foot of Mt. Aetna has been family-owned for centuries. ondesign completely recast the old family coat of arms with its three pilgrim symbols (scallop, staff, rosemary sprig), and gave it an elegant feminine note, appropriate to the new mother-daughter management team. We also designed a complete alphabet based on a Jugendstil-era wine label. We created wine labels with historical wallpaper motifs from the family’s classicistic country estate. The olive oil produced by the Fattorie’s centuries-old trees got its own product branding under the name Felicjuso.

MUSEUM MACHT STARK (Museum makes you Strong)

The best approach is at eye level. So it’s young people themselves who show other youngsters around “their” museum. The sponsor of this peer education project is the German Museums Association. The aim of the initiative “Kultur macht stark” (Culture makes you Strong) – supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research – is to give educationally disadvantaged young people access to culture and the sciences. The ondesign team developed an appropriate visual identity for this project.

READING (DESIGN) ISLANDS

A carpet that becomes a seat and integrates an enclosed reading area. The “reading (design) island” is very much like a cosy old armchair. The carpets that cover the folding structure of the seats are hand-made Kelims. When folded, the product takes up little space and is easy to transport. It can be used in public buildings to create a reading corner, complemented by a small table, a lamp and a screen as shown in the touring exhibition “reading (design) islands, 10 design seats for 10 design books”.
