A creative playground and high-performance show circuit in one. Strichpunkt designed the annual stage for the best photographers in Germany.
The yearbooks and the magazine of the German Association of Freelance Photographers and Film-Makers document the professional history of German photography – and the design of the annuals is exposed to the scrutiny of the whole creative industry. Year after year, we embrace this challenge. For instance, we dedicated three editions to the ‘hows’ of photography – in the form of a camera obscura slipcase, a simulation of a camera viewfinder or a tribute to the SLR camera. In 2012, there followed a nostalgic retrospective of analogue photography in the form of books were reminiscent of the packaging of Agfa, Kodak and Ilford models. In 2013, the extra-large format print magazine designed and co-developed by Strichpunkt broke away from the yearbooks for the first time – and quickly became a favourite among art buyers and photo aficionados.
