Earnest & Algernon 2014

Founded in 2011 by management consultants Mrs. Elisabeth und Mr. Christian Jacobs, Earnest & Algernon is a biannual customer magazine focused on culture. The magazine talks in part about the Jacobs’ qualifications, but largely highlights topics from obscure fields of interest for what is tantamount to a private readers club of High-End clients. Each issue is monothematic and examines one specific topic from every possible angle. The design always reflects the current issue’s theme, making each magazine unique. Bureau Borsche created the visual concept for Earnest & Algernon, including its name and logo; and also contributed illustrations and imagery to go along with the art direction.

An issue all about time. The Iris print gives every cover, dependent on its production time, an unpredictable gradient. The high end paper is similar to that of a clock-face. The Bureau also created illustrations to flow throughout the magazine.
