Kummer & Herrman - excellence in design

Utrecht based Dutch design team Kummer & Herrman highlight a clutch of outstanding design projects in their latest newsletter. Here are just three of Kummer & Herrman's recent projects, all photography based.

1. The exhibition 'On the Move – Storytelling in Contemporary Photography and Graphic Design' at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam focuses on recent developments in photography and reveals the myriad ways in which artists and photographers build their narratives in dialogue with graphic designers. Exhibition and supporting publication designed by K & H.

2. The PhotoBookMuseum gives a tribute to the central form of expression within photography: The photobook. For the initial phase of the museum, Photoszene Köln and Foundation present 24 exhibitions and PhotoBookStudies in a space of over 5000 square meters. A diverse parallel programme includes lectures, workshops, discussions and signings. The K & H team has created the visual identity in all its manifestations.

 3. We Love Britain! The Sprengel Museum Hannover commissioned K & H to produce the  campaign and catalogue for the exhibition 'We Love Britain!' with photographs by Martin Parr. Parr was asked to search for possible traces of Britishness in and around Hannover, the background being not only the celebration of the 300th anniversary of the crowning of the Elector of Hannover as George I of England in 1714 but also the more recent history of Lower Saxony as part of the former British zone of occupation.
