I was really excited when Karl Englert invited me to became art director for the magazine ÖSTERREICHISCHE BAUWIRTSCHAFT. Hardly ever a young graphic designer has getting so much trust and so much space for his own ideas. It resulted in a deep friendship with Karl. Unfortunately the collapse of MACULAN HOLDING AG in 1996 which affected the whole Austrian economy ended this story of success abruptly. Getting started one year before the crash, the small publishing house with less financial power than others went into big troubles and had to be sold.
