The Gymnasium on Gartenstraße in Mönchengladbach is characterized by innovative teaching concepts, high interaction standards, and a very welcoming attitude.
I was asked to work as project manager and lead designer to refocus and sharpen the school’s position as well as to develop a visually tailored outdoor appearance. After hosting various workshops with principals, teachers and parents, the focus was on creating a new vivid visual language which represented the school’s pupil-friendly but also professional attitude.
During the process, I designed a school planner for young pupils in fifth to seventh grade. It was intended for everyday use, particularly robust and waterproofed. The planer is divided in a daily calendar section for noting down homework tasks as well as a didactic section containing writing tips, math rules, vocabs, advices for behavior in school, puzzles, and space for notes.
The planner was sold out within a few days. It is an integral part of the school’s visual identity and will be published in 3rd edition this year.
