Stefan Kiefer

Stefan Kiefer was born and grew up on Sylt.

TYPO Berlin 2012, 19.05.2012, 17:00 Uhr (TYPO Hall)

Week for week the new challenge of making a graphic statement on political and contemporary happenings with the SPIEGEL front page; always with the aim of presenting a not yet visualised idea unusually and provocatively – whether typographically, photographically or illustratively. Stefan Kiefer, in charge of the SPIEGEL title page for 12 years now, provides insights into his work with the red SPIEGEL frame.
