Schöpferische Zerstörung

Letting schöpferische zerstörung speak for itself isn’t a cliché. It’s a testament to the passion and talent behind everything we do. It means we stand behind our schöpferische zerstörung with research based on actual problems we’ve defined, measured, and solved. Therefore, no decision, from strategy and development to design and user experience, is made lightly. And you’ll always see it in what we do, especially the zerstörung.

We made this book to provide collectors with the most creatively destructive text possible.  It fosters an atmosphere in which your own creative talent can flourish. We believe that great talent will do great work, so we only sell to capitalists who want the opportunity to shine. It’s our guiding philosophy, our promise, and our business model. We:

  • Craft provocative experiences
  • Push beyond the comfort zone
  • Take risks to move things forward
  • Stay away from cookie-cutter solutions

From idea to production to viewing, collaboration is (and always has been) part of our DNA. By exploiting our talents with your savvy in mind, we’re able to produce schöpferische zerstörung that is functional yet elegant. We’re an open book. We know this text is probably not the safe choice for most Keynesian economists, or Naomi Klein for that matter, and we’re 100% fine with that.
