Stamp City | BM

Stamp city is  about graphic design, Typography and city plan!
Taking inspiration from the book Learning from Las Vegas, we designed stamps likes the billboards of an imaginary city.  We had a long list of possible business and activities taking place in the city: supermarket, dentist, hotel, museum, scrapyard… The participant learned new words and experienced the basics of typography. At the end of the workshop we printed together (on a big canvas) the plan of our new Las Vegas!

 

Stamp City | Ein kleiner Workshop ueber  Grafik, Typografie und Stadtplanung. Jeder Stempel ist ein Schild! Supermarkt, Arzt, Hotel, Pflegedienst, Museum, Schrottplatz… Gemeisam mit den Teilnehmern haben wir viele Stempel gestaltet und die Topographie einer imaginären Stadt erfunden.


The workshop took place in 2017 and was part of the Bildungs Manufaktur, an education program for refugees organized by Schlesische 27, cultural and art center for youngsters in Berlin.
