Friends

Infinitely complex, the challenges of tomorrow demand a completely new open-mindedness, the pollination of sectors and an unprecedented collaboration between different players.

This project is co-creation at its best!

Concept, coordination & interviews: Frédérique Buck

Webdesign: iamnotarefugee.com

Hosting: Guillaume Rischard

Photography: Sven Becker  –   svenbecker.lu

This project is developed with the financial support of Oeuvre Nationale de Secours Grande-Duchesse Charlotte (call for projects mateneen).

Graphic design: Vitali Poluzhnikov, Caio Andrade, Mitsuko Sato,
Diedrik Persson, Mike Wittrup & Daniel Rorbaek, the six friends I partnered up with and who created the initial concept and design direction (iamnotarefugee.com). Without you and your open source mindset nothing would have been possible.

Special thanks to Göran Söderström / Letters from Sweden and Pilar Cano / Letterjuice for kindly providing us with the Lab Grotesque and Baldufa Arabic typefaces.

Our 4,300 followers on Facebook. Together we stand strong for an open, multilayered and colorful Luxembourg.
