DUO: Berger & Föhr (Issue 1)
Duo is One
Here is the very first issue of DUO: magazine! We are super thrilled to finally be able to share it with you. For a long time now, we wanted to dabble with publishing, especially a small press magazine but we needed a good excuse to do so; a theme that was dear to us and that we would like to explore. Finally, this theme was standing there, all the time with us.
Let’s start from the beginning. We two, Adrien and Clotilde, are brother and sister above all; the only two siblings at home. So, our duo has existed since our earliest childwood before eventually becoming a duo of designers. Voilà, that’s us. Just to explain briefly why we get very passionate by duos.
With DUO:, our idea is to meet and learn from other pairs of all kinds and horizons: Those which we adore, who inspire us, surprise us or who make us dream and wonder. Basically, we are super curious about what duos do, how do they collaborate, where do they work, what inspire them and more. We enjoy to dive into the fascinating world of others: It’s a formidable opportunity to appreciate our differences and similarities. Maybe you too. And this is why you still read this. And this is why we wanted to publish this magazine.
With DUO:, we go for the simplest approach: an issue = a duo. We want to celebrate creative duos in all their diversity and uniqueness, one at a time.
We have been fortunate to be able to dedicate this very first issue to a pair of guys we hold in high regard and who constantly astonish us : The duo Berger & Föhr. Todd Berger and Lucian Föhr are two designers from Colorado (USA), who have worked together for more than 13 years and who have co-founded the most rad social network ello (ello.co).
Not only talented but also super kind to such an extent that they have not hesitate to be the first to answer to our endless flow of questions. Through this conversation, they give us a first meaning of what a duo is: “DUO is ONE”. But we let you discover this in greater detail in the following pages.
Bref, as we tell you, this is the very first issue of DUO:, the only one thus far: We truly hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do. And if so, just let us know!
