Büro für Grafikdesign
Jan Ploch is a forward-thinking graphic designer working across digital and analog media. He creates websites, books, typefaces, illustrations, branding and more. He was educated at the University of Applied Sciences in Hamburg.
Working with international musicians and composers, Ensemble KNM Berlin performed a series of four concerts that sought to see our world through Tiepolo’s and Dufourt’s eyes. In four movements (America, Europe, Asia, and Africa), Hugues Dufourt’s composition reinterprets Giovanni Battista Tiepolo’s renowned ceiling fresco – not only as a masterpiece of light and color, but also as a critical response to early globalization and the European “project” of world domination. I created posters and flyers to promote the concert series, taking the fresco itself as the basis for the design and retaining the arrangement of the continents within the fresco, which presents them as parts of a larger whole.
