Modular Illustration

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.
