Featured for the first time in the noted Sternberg Black Pocket Book series is a selection of seminal graphic-design projects developed by Markus Weisbeck’s German studio Surface over the last ten years. This paradigm-shifting firm has redefined the client-designer relationship, challenging what constitutes a graphic design practice today. Whether Surface collaborates closely with artists, like Liam Gillick or Isa Genzken, to create the posters for the German Pavilion at the Venice Biennale or takes the liberty to insert subtle interventions into monthly issues of a magazine, its designs skillfully inform the content at hand. Includes projects as diverse as virtual audio artwork by artist Michaela Melián, numeerous artists’ catalogues and key visuals for Manifesta 7. Also featured is a conversation between Christoph Keller and Markus Weisbeck.
