Digitalisation, volatile markets and shifting values don‘t just change our own consumer habits, they also force entire industries to alter their perspectives. Faber-Castell has created structures that are benefiting us right now. Change? It is everywhere.

Artist Anastasia Ax, winner of the 2nd Faber-Castell International Drawing Award, shows just what illustration can mean today using her entire body: she spits and hurls ink around her and “draws” an equally bizarre, yet temporary, black & white landscape in this way on head-high blocks of recycling paper (read all about it on page 12).
