No limits design

Over the last few years, creative minds have increasingly needed to think ahead of the pack. Getting seen and being remembered when one and all have online portfolios rich with talent is difficult at best. Standing out from the crowd may require more than flair, hard work and good luck.

However, new opportunities beyond print and web are emerging each day as designers and those responsible for commissioning them look for new initiatives and new ways of working and collaborating. Less traditional projects, including installations, interior design and the use of new and unusual materials, has attracted attention and significantly raised the profile of many of those involved.

A winning combination
The combination of big business and non-conventional creativity is evidently proving a winner. This summer, the Berlin office of TBWA\ Germany produced a stunning fresco for sports giant adidas as Germany hosted the World Cup. The 9,000 sq ft artwork engulfed the main lobby of Cologne central train station. The Michelangelo Sistine Chapel homage was created using the talents of illustrator Felix Reidenbach, taking him almost 40 days to complete - approximately four days per figure. A 65-metre wide illustrated version of German goalkeeper Oliver Kahn jumping across a four-lane Autobahn at Munich airport also proved to be a major attraction.
