For the project series on the occasion of the “International Day of the Forest”, I designed the German-Chinese primer “Forstwärts” as well as illustrations for the eponymous short film. “Forstwärts” is made for German learning primary school children regarding the topic of “benefit and protection of the forest”. The illustrations, the typography and the whole structure of the primer are therefore created child-oriented and suitable for beginning readers. The project series was subsidized by the German Embassy of Beijing and realized by the cultural platform Kulturgut. It was supported by the GIZ, the Chinese State Forest Administration, the Forest office Beijing as well as the German embassy school Beijing.
