I was asked to standardise the different publications by defining rules for the co-branding of AHK (worldwide network of the German Chambers of Commerce, coordinated by the DIHK) and DEinternational (service brand of AHK) and fix them in a coporate design manual.

AHK Brochure

(16 pages, A4) to represent the work of worldwide network. Printed on strong paper with discreet embossements on the cover (title, logo and part of the image). The inside back cover was built with a triangular pocket to contain the smaller…


DEinternational Brochure

(16 pages, A5) to represent the skills of the in-house service brand.


AHK Regions Flyer

containing all relevant information and contact data of every country and it’s ambassador that represent the AHK all over the world.
