Exclusively for the first release of »Communication« in 2003, Bartos developed a pictographic visual language that the Hamburg-based agency, Weissraum, then further adapted for a variety of formats.
Pictograms were the best fit for Bartos' idea of graphic visualisation since they impart information through simple symbols. Weissraum also directed the pictographic animated video for »I'm The Message«. Lucas Buchholz and Bernd Brink subsequently garnered numerous international awards for their design and communication work then.
The more than prolific collaboration has proceeded in the graphic desgin of Bartos' critically acclaimed last album »Off The Record« (2013/Bureau B) and of course, continues with the total artwork for the »Communication« re-release this year.
Karl Bartos: "To me making music requires devotion, emotion, intellect, and skills. And these attributes are exactly what I find in Lucas and Bernd."
Watch out for further news on our »Communication« re-release!
