HfG Offenbach Annual Reports

The Annual Report, which appears every year in July on the occasion of the “Rundgang” Open Day, documents all the activities at HfG in Offenbach during the preceding year and is to be seen as a significant medium, directed internally at students, teaching staff and employees, and externally at (potential) cooperation partners, potential students, the general public with an interest in HfG, the press, and politicians.

The Press Office manages the editorial work and the organization of the publication, as well as the relevant communication means for the “Rundgang” Open day (posters, invitations, , flyer ...) as a major project.

Every year the HfG Annual Report is designed by a different student team supervised by a professor in a creative field (since 2011 Prof. Sascha Lobe, whose field of teaching is typography). The projects conducted and degrees awarded during the past two semesters are always the focal point of the Annual Report. It also contains welcomes and farewells to new and departing colleagues. The Annual Report also features a DVD with short films, animations and documentaries by students, some of which won several international awards, and which are selected by Prof. Rotraut Pape, whose field of teaching is Film and Video.
