Created this advertorial for SONY/ATV Music Publishing Germany who congratulates their nominees for the German Musikautorenpreis 2018. The nominees include Prinz Pi, Kool Savas and Kreator. The ad which is featured in Germany’s professional music magazine MusikWoche plays with concave and convex shapes and typography.
For SONY/ATV Music Publishing Germany JOTOPIA | Johannes Bayer created this double CD tray featuring music by nobel laureate Bob Dylan as a gift for special partners and friends of the company. As the first CD contains originals by Bob Dylan the second one encompasses cover-versions by artists such as Beck, Sufjan Stevens, Queens Ot The Stone Age, Jeff Buckley and Rage Against The Machine.
The artwork is taken from the original music video Subterranean Homesick Blues from 1965 and features quotes by Bob Dylan depicting the original type of the plates shown in the clip.

Idea sketch, rough draft, final drawing, coloration and illustration.
Had a pleasant trip from Texel, via Amsterdam, Den Haag, Leiden, Rotterdam, Renesse, Brugge, Gent and Stonehenge to Brighton. Instead of shooting 100000000 digital pictures I contented myself with recording the journey with pen, watercolor and paper. The result is a complete leporello-sketchbook. Use scroll wheel or drag and drop the picture to navigate through 280 cm of urban sketching. Also take a look at the sketchbooks from Denmark to Munich here and to the Lofoten Islands here.
Together with Tobias Gallé from PikDrei Johannes Bayer (Jotopia | Visual Noise) guided a workshop with students of Visual Communication (Annalena Can, Elena Mendolia-Callela, Fabian Kargl, Lars Siebert, Leonie Dietrich and Luca Büttner) in context of the B-Seite-Festival at PORT25 in Mannheim.
The workshop on the theme of “XYZ” combined aspects of physical installed elements in a dimension of 4 to 6 meters and virtual video-mappings and sought to fuse two- and three-dimensional elements such as flats and spaces.
Thanks a lot to Zacharias Zschenderlein for providing the music to us!
