Beton Numerals Submission Deadline Prolonged

We already received 25 numbers. We still accept your submissions. We know that there are still some of you out there who are either to vain, self-critical, telling themselves not to find the time or really couldn’t. Here is your chance to make us and yourself happy by giving us your number!

We would like to invite you to join our little ‘Numerals’ exhibition. Inspired by Letter Cult‘s Alphabattle, we are searching for your visual interpretations of a number you like (whether it’s 3, 7 or 25, even 6.987 is possible).

The Cage N°1

7. January 2011

Typedesign needs time. Time is rare. So, we decided to take some time off and concentrate 2 days just on making type. Without any stress or obligations. And to get really into it, we locked us away, not from everything, but at least from fresh air (-> The Cage). We invited Igor Labudovic and Michael Hager to join our circle. For their diploma Igor and Michael created some great stencilfonts from which Igor released Brilliant, a humanstic stencil-textface with strong cuts. Currently both of them are working on new typefaces to finish the Meisterklasse at die graphische in Vienna.

Janosch Typeface

4. January 2011

Finally also Benjamin Buchegger’s Diplomatypeface is online. He made a small book about “The Space between” (“Ein Büchlein über den Raum dazwischen”) to present his typeface. Contributors to the book were Chantal La Terreur ( essay about Austrian Soulclap), Christina Sarraf-Buchegger (illustration for Nasenvasen) Oliver Hofmann (illustration for Nasenvasen) and Matthias Aschauer (photos for Augenblicke). You can also take the book apart and unfold a poster. The photos aren’t perfect – but what the heck … you get the picture.

Website Update

26. November 2010

If you haven’t noticed it already, we have our website online. I just updated it with some fresh work, the EP artwork for the Red Eyed Criminals. I’m pretty happy with the outcome. The photography for the EP was done, again, by Josef Gassebner, who always have some good ideas in his mind!

Beside that, our good friend Rocketboy made a wonderful little documentary-like video about the recording sessions at the famous REC rehearsal site. She is also working on some own tracks at the moment, I’ll give you a shoutout when she is ready to show it to the world.

Making of…

9. November 2010

As one is confronted with the possibility to produce a video for the next befriended Indie – band, or in this case beat producer, the guidelines always sound pretty similar. “Produce a video in short time, with the lowest budget possible and let your inner artistic feeling thrive = make it a good promo stunt“ The task was also quite alike when Christoph aka. Minor Sick and Chantal first approached us with the request to evolve our visual skills from mere stilled graphic arrangements to the moving image.

Videos Inside!
