Special Edition: Sebastian Kneipp
Design Strategy & Illustration
To celebrate the 200th birthday of Sebastian Kneipp whose knowledge was named UNESCO intangible cultural heritage the Federal Ministry of Finance honored him with a special edition stamp which was published in July 2021.
Commissioned by the Federal Ministry of Finance, Germany
Collaboration with BUREAU NOW
The five pillars of Sebastian Kneipp’s philosophy constitute an interplay between balance • plants • water • nutrition • exercise.
Those elements create the modular core of the illustration and assemble the portrait of Kneipp on the stamp celebrating his 200th birthday.
The minimalistic, graphic approach contrasts the century-long knowledge of Kneipp and translates it seamlessly into the here and now. The perfect tribute to highlight its contemporary relevance.
