featured by GoSee SHOP : Freistil 8 – Call for Entries

For more than 20 years, Freistil – The Book of Illustration has been following and documenting the developments of the graphic illustration scene. This elaborately produced book is a platform presenting its stylistic breadth and depth while serving as a springboard for emerging talent and a radar for contemporary trends and techniques.

The world of illustration has experienced rapid and profound change over the course of these 20 years. New technologies, cultural shifts and a meanwhile globalized communications industry have all contributed to greater diversity, dynamism and innovation. But precisely because illustration is becoming increasingly ubiquitous, particularly in digital media, it is still at heart pretty much about what it always has been.

Illustration helps to depict complex ideas and concepts in a simple way, spark our curiosity, tell stories and sometimes even shape identities. And since illustration is marked by such a great degree of individuality and facilitates accessibility, it will continue to be a fundamental part of how we communicate with one another in the future.

FREISTIL 8 will be published in early 2025, three years after the previous issue, and will feature the best illustrators in the industry alongside exciting texts on the role of illustration in our ever-changing world.

featured by GoSee ADVERTISING : ‘Every Voice Counts’ – OPEN SOURCE campaign with peaceful revolutionaries created with AI by RABAN RUDDIGKEIT c/o YES WE PROMPT for the BERLINER ZEITUNG

The BERLINER ZEITUNG newspaper stands for a diversity of voices, opinions and perspectives. To celebrate the 34th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, BERLINER ZEITUNG has launched a campaign to raise awareness for their OPEN SOURCE platform, which can be used by anyone to upload interesting texts.

Berlin-based designer RABAN RUDDIGKEIT created the motifs for it with the aid of AI. They depict several peaceful revolutionaries of the past century with alarmed facial expressions: Mahatma Gandhi, Václav Havel, Bärbel Bohley, Martin Luther King, Jitzchak Rabin and Lech Wałęsa.

It kicked off with a cover for the weekend edition of BERLINER ZEITUNG on 4 and 5 November, 2023, followed by three further double pages in the journal. Page three informed readers about the content of the campaign and how OPEN SOURCE works.

“Whatever happened to the spirit of the peaceful revolution which led to the fall of the Berlin Wall on 9 November, 1989, and which had previously carried the protests and changes in Eastern Europe? How might the civil rights and peace activists who always advocated for nonviolent civil disobedience look upon our day and age?”
