Irony and strictness

The book "Erfolgreich trotz familie" narrates about family-run businesses in 36 stories. The title ironically claims that buisiness success is achievable "in spite of the family".

For his illustrations, the artist Dietmar Gamper uses a sharp and ironic cut, so that the narrative text is highlighted. The graphic work/project emphasises the combination strictness-irony, the typography is essential and austere. The bichromatic palette let the graphite illustrations to surface with the result that the single stories content is enriched
