the "Prinzträger" design studio in<br />

Bochum, with whom they collaborate<br />

on interior design projects. In 2018<br />

they worked with the LWL Zollern<br />

Colliery Industrial Museum in Dortmund<br />

on an exhibition called “Revier<br />

Gestalten”. Their female colleagues<br />

took care of the scenographic design,<br />

whilst the Gang designed the<br />

graphic-typographic items including<br />

the catalogue. The Gang have also<br />

designed a sober logo for the Bochum<br />

drugstore “Die Kulturtasche”, a<br />

conscious contrast to the colourful<br />

items in the concept store.<br />

For Stefan Tuschy and<br />

Jannis Reichard, the most exciting<br />

projects are those in which clients<br />

and designers approach each other<br />

with open minds. This enables them<br />

to come up with unusual ideas and<br />

visual languages. For example, their<br />

posters for the “ITEM” initiative featured<br />

cool snapshots of budgies and<br />

noise barriers that initially seemed<br />

completely at odds with their client:<br />

the Roman Catholic Church in Bochum.<br />

This was deliberate!<br />

The same applies to their<br />

photos of the products manufactured<br />

by “Silex” in Herne, a firm<br />

which produces tubes, profiles and<br />

moulded parts made of silicone<br />

rubber. These could hardly be called<br />

stylish unless they are presented<br />

in the right light. The two designers<br />

were given a whole bag of items for<br />

the photoshoot. Set against a luminous background the parts<br />

have an elegance reminiscent of abstract works of art.<br />

The “Dachwerk.NRW” company in Castrop-Rauxel,<br />

which specialises in sustainable building, is another creative<br />

playground for Tuschy and Reichard. In addition to the logo and<br />

corporate design, they also developed merchandising items<br />

like a small wooden board, a birdhouse construction kit and a<br />

branding iron that can burn a logo into wood. An angular block<br />

of wood is used as a support for a stamp intended for business<br />

documents. Here too they were lucky to work with young<br />

open-minded clients. They told us “Just do it”, says Stefan<br />

Tuschy. Right up their street!<br />
