Alle wollen ins Paradies. Ist man bloß ein Vogel unter vielen?, Stefanie’s BA thesis

There’s a fine line, and it can be found all over Stefanie Brückler’s work. Stefanie is an Austrian designer now working out of NYC, whose somewhat Kinfolk-y aesthetic incorporates fine details, a good serif typeface, and a healthy respect for whitespace. She’s currently at High Tide, where she touches a range of branding-adjacent projects; where Stephanie most shines is her editorial and print work.

Take, for example, her BA thesis project, called Alle wollen ins Paradies. Ist man bloß ein Vogel unter vielen? in German. An effort combining her own editorial design, illustration, writing, research, and photography, the thesis explores the pursuit of creative paradise, of carving out an original space of one’s own.
