The network of the festivals, museums and historical monuments of the Rhine-Neckar region have initiated an new magazine. KULTURMAGAZIN covers the region's cultural life with interviews, portraits, and reports. The magazine will be published three times per year – including a spring, summer and fall issue – with a circulation of 150.000 copies and will be distributed both locally and nationwide as a supplement für national dailies such as Sueddeutsche Zeitung or FAZ. The entire magazine is also available online – optimized für desktop, tablet and smartphone.

We were in charge of the entire project – from devising the visual and editorial concept to producing the magazine, both text and design.
