Brasilia is a monothematic magazine of the design department of the Hanover University of Applied Sciences. The editorial team consists of design students, professors and staff from Faculty III - Media, Information and Design at "Hochschule Hannover". We founded the magazine together in 2013 and developed our own appearance, as well as a visual concept that changes from issue to issue. The exciting thing about this challenge was to create an image medium that represented the design faculty externally and attracted external interested parties - and at the same time found acceptance among the student body through its authenticity.
Because Brasilia should primarily appeal to people who are interested in design, the result was a visual concept that conveys creative joy and invites you to discover: Each article finds its own form, which means that the design refers directly to the content of the individual contribution. This content-sensitive design creates better access to the topics and gives pleasure when exploring the magazine. At the same time, a visual bracket is needed around the individual designs to hold the articles together and to run them through the magazine as a common thread. We supervised the magazine beyond our time as a student and handed over the heritage in 2016 to subsequent generations of students who continue to run the magazine successfully to this day and continue to receive awards in national and international competitions.
