Du in Berlin

“Du In Berlin” is a notebook that invites newcomers to the city of Berlin to get to know a little bit on the city’s few districts (Mitte, Freidrichsain-Kreuzberg, Neukölln), their activities, public places and culture.

Both are aimed to help to convey the stories written in the text in an engaging manner. The book consists of four different chapters, as well as Prologue and Next Steps (conclusions). Each chapter has its own design approach and color code. The idea of the color coding came as a necessity to separate German and English text of the book since it’s bilingual. Spatial drawings of each Model Project from the first chapter (orange color) gave an opportunity in a schematic way to convey more clearly the idea of the project. An Urban scheme was able to represent contexts of the project since some of them are located in the city center or in the former industrial area. The zoomed-in image of the building was aimed […]
