type of project. They create each one of
their pieces with a classic notion of design,
using it as a way to draft and construct
new forward-looking images in the fi eld of
visual communication.
Much of their work has been
commissioned by clients from the world of
art and culture – including the Museum of
Decorative Arts in Frankfurt, Documenta
in Kassel, the Bordeaux School of Fine Art,
and the Brétigny Center of Contemporary
PARIS, CONSIDERED TO BE ONE of the
most beautiful and glamorous cities in
the world, is the setting for Vier5 studio
comprising the designers Marco Fiedler
and Achim Reichert, a duo who started
working together in 1999 in Frankfurt,
Germany.
This creative team endeavors to avoid
visually empty phrases, substituting them
with creative, individual statements that
are developed according to the media and
Art. One of their most well known
projects is the publication Fairy Tale, a
photographic magazine of a thematic
nature, designed and published by them.
The use of seemingly hand-created
typography stands out in their daring yet
simple graphic language. Their pixeled
shapes refer to a computer aesthetic – a
type of digital doodle which has become
the emblematic signature of their designs.
