I redesigned the well-established book series in 2007 for the Waldemar Kramer publishing house by commission of manager Dr Henriette Kramer. The focus of the Kramer publishing programme was on the cultural history of the city of Frankfurt am Main. The Studienreihe look features multi-coloured bands with a section of Kramer’s striped letter K logo (original logo design by master typographer Joachim Romann, 1916—1996).

The original concept also included a layout without any image on the frontpage and one with a full-format upright image.

In Summer 2008, the Studienreihe design was shown in Bremen’s Neues Museum Weserburg in the exhibition Ein X für ein U, presenting 25 years of typography deriving from Bremen University of Arts. The exhibition was organized in association with the 23rd Forum Typography conference.

The daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung said “the traditional book series now has a new face. The cover design is as fresh as the approach of editor Evelyn Brockhoff.”
