2017 Muse Creative Awards | St. Marien-Krankenhaus Corporate Design

Healthcare Corporate Branding by Arndtteunissen

St. Marien-Krankenhaus corporate design by arndtteunissen GmbH, Germany is a Platinum Winner in the 2017 Muse Creative Awards. The St. Marien-Krankenhaus GmbH is a regional healthcare company in the German city of Ratingen.

St. Marien-Krankenhaus Corporate Design by arndtteunissen GmbH, Germany

Company : arndtteunissen GmbH

Client : St. Marien-Krankenhaus GmbH

Project Title : St. Marien-Krankenhaus Corporate Design

Category : MARKETING BRANDING & DESIGN | Corporate Identity

Country : Germany

St. Marien-Krankenhaus Corporate Design by arndtteunissen GmbH, Germany

The Concept

In addition to the primary and secondary care hospital, the GmbH (limited liability company) also provides comprehensive inpatient care for the elderly in its retirement home and center. The company’s offering of services also includes outpatient facilities in the associated health clinic. The company requires a clear brand architecture to transparently communicate its structures – both internally and to the outside – that have grown over time. Its appearance should therefore also convey a positive feeling to the often anxious patients, visitors or residents, as well as to radiate warmth and confidence. All of St. Marien-Krankenhaus GmbH’s institutions represent a place of assistance and provide a sense of security – they are places of refuge. In this context, the “Haus” (hospital and home) represents all these descriptions. Consequently, it becomes the central concept in the wording.

St. Marien-Krankenhaus Corporate Design by arndtteunissen GmbH, Germany

The institutes have the brand names “Sankt Marien Krankenhaus” [St. Mary Hospital], “Sankt Marien Seniorenhaus” [St. Mary Senior Citizen Home] and “Sankt Marien Ärztehaus” [St. Mary Health Clinic]. On the other hand, GmbH (limited liability company) is the umbrella brand parent superordinate to the sub-brands. The appearance is based on a soft, round form language. Such elements extend across the entire design from the company typeface and the icon all the way to the rounded corners in its printed media. The usage of a friendly palette of colors itself helps to communicate the brand’s warmth. The umbrella brand has a warm gray palette. A separate color palette in yellow, apricot and blue is assigned to each of the sub-brands. All these features ultimately contribute to the sympathetic character of the brand. Not to mention, it ensures a high degree of recognition in the competitive field.

Self Portraits | Mickey Strider Photography Wins Muse Creative Awards

Final Repose: Self-Portraits by Mickey Strider Photography, United States is a Platinum Winner in the 2017 Muse Creative Awards.

Self Portraits | Mickey Strider Photography Wins Muse Creative Awards

Company : Mickey Strider Photography

Client: Self

Project Title : Final Repose: Self-Portraits

Category : PHOTOGRAPHY (5 Photos) | People / Portrait

Country : United States

Artist Statement:

I have always believed that one day I would end my life. It wasn’t a romantic notion or to prove a point. It was just a reality set aside for another, more appropriate time. As someone who has battled depression for most of their life, many times years have passed by without the feeling of knowing what it felt like to truly be happy. Like so many who struggle with this, I have relied on a sense of humor, dark for sure, to keep those near me both entertained and none the wiser of my own brain chemistry’s plot to do me in. This dark humor led me to think about all of the ways in which my life might come to an end. It didn’t matter if it was by my own hand, by someone else’s, or some other accidental occurrence.

I realized it kind of amused me. Thus, I let my mind indulge them all. I found myself wondering what kind of scene someone might stumble upon, what my final image might be. The artist in me finally decided to start depicting these scenarios as self-portraits. Some are considered for a while and some come to me very quickly. Others are driven by location and some are not. Some images are pretty clear what has occurred. For the others, I leave up to the viewer’s interpretation.

Not all are suicides, but they all show me in my state of final repose. The project has helped me to keep some of my darker thoughts of death at bay. It almost become a game. Viewing these for me is seeing myself as an outsider at their final moment. That has given the internal thoughts of my demise a context and reality that I didn’t possess previously. The only thing I don\’t know is what exactly I have planned for me next.
