Dimitri Grünig

«Aber schwul bin ich immer noch»

Editorial

2023

For his visual essay «Aber schwul bin ich immer noch», illustrator Dimitri Grünig delves deep into the disturbing world of so-called «Conversion therapies». In his account in text and images, the experiences of many affected are reflected in a fictional character. For the book, published by edition clandestin, 7er Studio created a design that is reminiscent of slide projections and leaves room for the centrepiece: the story of the protagonist. A plastic cover with a leather look refers to the travel bible and thus to the narrowness of a conservative Christian world in which the story takes place. (Photos book: Studio Attila Janes)

ABQ – Vielfalt macht Schule

Corporate Design

2023

ABQ organises school visits that enable young people to have direct encounters with queer people and invite them to discuss gender and sexual diversity. The non-profit organisation – whose name is derived from the traditional «ABC» – also shares the queer alphabet by providing information on teaching materials, further education, counselling services and partner organisations. 7er Studio has developed a dynamic corporate design for ABQ. The website and new logo take centre stage. For the various means of communication, 7er Studio created diversity-sensitive illustrations that aim to emphasise multiple perspectives.

Kornhausforum Bern

«Anti-Surveillance Fashion»

Campaign

2023

What does surveillance have to do with fashion? In the «Anti-Surveillance Fashion» exhibition, which took place at the Kornhausforum Bern, quite a lot. 7er Studio took on the visual appearance of the show, which focused, among other things, on clothing that cannot be captured by surveillance cameras. For posters, invitation cards and social media, 7er Studio staged fact-based figures on surveillance around Bern and contrasted them with the slogan «Time for a new outfit». The design picks up on the aesthetics of leading fashion mail-order companies and so it is only clear at second glance that an exhibition is being advertised here and not an outfit to order at the click of a mouse.

Forum Raumordnung Schweiz

«Orte für Menschen»

Editorial

2022

The «Forum Raumordnung Schweiz» deals with space and quality of life and is a critical voice in the discourse on spatial planning and architecture in Switzerland. «Orte für Menschen» was created for this purpose. Published in Italian, French and German, the booklet functions on the one hand as an appeal for a reorientation of spatial planning with a focus on people’s needs, and on the other hand shows how such a reorientation could be implemented, using the example of Glarus Nord.

The page-filling illustration is also unmistakably penned by 7er Studio and shows a fictitious 13th zodiac sign on its way to the zodiac entrance exam.

Ruven Stettler

Website

2022

For Ruven Stettler, 7er Studio has brought the artist’s extensive body of work into a manageable order online. The result is a website that makes it possible to browse through an archive of drawings, paintings, installations and video works, either chronologically or filtered by groups of work. The focus on the image and a sparse use of text make the extent of the work tangible on a visual level.
