BOARDING PASS TO PARADISE – Wandgestatung / Katalog

Architectural Renderings of the Exhibition by the Architect Georg Schrom

BOARDING PASS TO PARADISE is a narrating exhibition about the escape route of two young artists fleeing the Nazi regime; to finally be detained in Mauritius.  Peretz Béda Mayer survived the ordeal and Fritz Handel committed suicide.  The emotionally stirring exhibition was made possible in collaboration with Museums in Israel, the Czech Republic and endowed by Austrian Funds.  The Austrian exhibition was displayed at the Shipping Centre on the Danube near the Viennese bridge Reichsbrücke and was also shown throughout Museums in Israel, the Czech Republic.

The architect oft he exhibition: Georg Schrom suggested the Atelier Zichy and was assigned by the Organizer Milli Segal to create the visual fort he exhibition.

Since the exhibition showed mainly the work the two artists made during their escape by boat and their stay in Mauritius, as well as works of Peretz Béda Mayer made after that in Israel, the catalogue was meant to be designed like a logbook in a captains cabin and to make a reference with the Typography to the lettering of 30th & 40th transporting systems.

A timeline visualized the chronology of the events and enabled visitors of the exhibition and readers oft he catalogue to comprehend both biographies.  The different eras of the escape as well as the time after are emphasized with different colours throughout the exhibition as well as in the pages of the catalogue.

The target group of the BINDER Trio are not mainstream consumers and the repertory is shaped by the Otmar Binders personal style. Therefore the Austrian audience is a privy cycle of music fans. An urgent wish oft the band is to get also young listeners enthusiastic about their excellent oeuvre.

Outside of Austria’s boarders the artistic work of this Trios has been very well appreciated. Through the Internet in- and outside of Austria an all-round supply of music has been made available for fans. That’s why it got necessary to create a very international Image for the Trio.

Otmar Binder is very keen on to ensure, that in the personal branding of the band and in the product design higher listening is the obvious message.  Which is mirrored from label, to the CD’s throughout to all the advertising measures as well as in the online appearance. All this is strongly toned by the masterly work oft the photographer Christoph Hellhake.

Corporate Design

Logo – Examples and Stationary

The German-Austrian film production owned by known producer Golli Marboe was founded in 2013 and existed till 2015. The producer is known through his Docudramas for the German-French TV station ARTE and the TV station 3Sat as well as for the ORF, the Austrian Broadcasting Corporation, and for the series „Donauklöster“ featuring the monasteries along the Danube, which still can be seen on TV.

The wording MAKIDO means MArboe, KIno, DOcu and is a follow up of his previous film company “Sternstunden”. The „O“ with the star in the middle refers to the light beam of projectors, but also to the previous company “Sternstunden”. Which means; an hour of glory and literally; hour of stars.

Atelier Zichy developed for the film company MAKIDO a Logo for all printed matters, environment design and a Logo adaptation for the on screen closing titles.
