Was kostet die Welt? - Youtube Channel Design
"Was kostet die Welt?" is the new YouTube format by FAZ and FUNK focusing
on the topic of economics.
I was thrilled when Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) newspaper expressed interest in working with me on this project. While working for FAZ is excellent in itself, the fact that FAZ is collaborating with FUNK and indirectly providing me an opportunity to work with FUNK is also enticing. However, due to time constraints, I found myself faced with a task that was too big for me to handle on my own. I mentioned the situation to my dear friend Bettina, and she happily offered her assistance, saying she could help. I believe it was one of the best collaborations I have had recently. I wish her success in her new freelance career, and I hope we can work together on more projects in the future.

Logo Design
For logo design and the CI, we used IBM Plex font. We specifically vectorized the font for the logo and gave it a playful desig
After extensive trials and considering the client's requests, we decided on these primary colors. Through the Papercut style, which we used to design high-contrast colors, we achieved a harmonious and complementary aesthetic.
After lengthy dialogues with the client, here is the final version of the opener and logo animation.
