conmoto: catalogs and communication

Magazines, catalogues, winning the Red Dot and German Design Awards: Jens Könen is on fire. It’s great to see our very own Cera Pro as the key typographic ingredient for the conmoto brand.

Dedicated to high-quality and sophisticated design, conmoto is a brand for designer furniture and custom design. Along with a strategic new orientation, Jens Könen developed a holistic redesign for the brand’s communications.

conmoto catalogs

As part of the new corporate design, conmoto’s sales media were restructured and redesigned. Instead of one main catalogue, Jens designed a series of conmoto.home brochures. Each catalog focuses on a series of products and Jens built a shared visual identity using Cera’s italics, rotating them to appear upright once again.

conmoto customer magazines

In order to keep their friends up to speed with the company's activities, conmoto now have the semi-annual magazine backstage. Based on the format of a daily newspaper, its fresh and clear design expands on conmoto’s visual identity by supplementing Cera with Pensum to give extended text the appropriate care and atmosphere.

conmoto corporate communication

Another focus for conmoto is their individually tailored designs for international clients. Their brochure Your project is in our DNA presents some of their projects. Using a visual system inspired by highly-abstracted DNA structures, it breaks their projects down into component parts and weaves them together again in a way that makes their work and process easy to understand. As a business-to-business marketing tool with a premium appearance, the layout has a simple colour palette that provides a neutral backdrop for the various references and details.

In 2019 Jens Könen and Your project is in our DNA won a Red Dot design award plus German Design Award 2020 in the Editorial Design category.
