Februar 2014 – I came across the new WACOM Companion/Cintiq. After testing it for a while and reviewing several product clips – I had the feeling that It would be nice to show my feeling of the product within a video. With the aim to show that the “Companion is not a toy” – while being a portable workstation with no compromise.
I came up with a concept I believed would be interesting and contacted WACOM EUROPE. They where quite exited and open to my concept and intention to create a Testimonial. From there I contacted my colleagues and friends who’s work I admire since years, Chris from SNDY.tv and DanielGrundPhotography - asking them if they would be up to shoot what I had in my mind – aka FRGMNTZ.From here on we started the quite tough timeline of 12-days, me creating artwork digital to analog from 2D to 3D and directing the guys how I´d like to everything captured while changing locations….
and finally setting up the 2-day Pop-Up gallery.
To see the result you might jump here to YOUTUBE or VIMEO.
The creative outcome such as artworks displayed, as well as a few T-Shirts, are currently available in the STORE.
Prototypes as the 3-D printed PORCEPLANEv.01, PORCEPLANEv.02 and the hand-crafted SPRAYCANDLE will follow by end of 2014.
I enjoy such short project collaborations that take place during my holidays a lot – and I guess there are more to come.
The newest FORM N°254 is focused on STYLEWRITING! They have featured one page of my works as FLATAU/THESIGNER with the focus on my transportation design stuff in the foreground and my “URBAN-AESTHETICS” as I prefer to call them as the resource in the background.
You can read the article here FORM#254-STYLEWRITING or buy it online HERE.
Summer is kind of ON – so here are two new designs along the FRGMNTZ series available NOW!

Here is a shot of me 3D modeling the PPLANEv.01 that I will exhibit in a few days here in Munich within my show called FRGMNTZ.
I used to carry my Cintiq 21UX along my MacBookPro with me for such sessions. Since I tried the new Wacom COMPANION the whole process is just so much more enjoyable. The space on my small table up there is much better organized and there is no need to carry all the equipment around.
Setup is super quick and the Companion has a good performance and handling on top. THANKS WACOM, for finally realizing such professional product!
I am just now creating various 3-D Typography Fragments. The result will be presented here in Munich next week, besides a few prototypes of up coming vs.YOU products.
Looking forward to see you if you`re in town! More to come_
Time to practice a bit again!
