Here are two designs our colleague Sebastian Koch made for two ‘Löwenzahn’ shorts. Both films, created by Linus Stetter and Thilo Kienle, are about luck and superstition. They had their premiere beginning of this year. Marcus Schäfer made additional designs. If you’re interested in a short preview, have a look at our website.

Happy Christmas!
