Illustration • KOMBINATROTWEISS-ILLUSTRATION : ‘Health and Energy’ an energetic exploration as SHOP WINDOW DESIGN for the dm stores by illustrator TILL WELLM

01.04.2020 • At the moment, Till Wellm’s motifs adorn the shop windows of dm stores. “The topic of ‘Health and Energy’ was interpreted by our Hamburg-based illustrator with lots of attention to detail in several collages as an exciting symbiosis. In his illustrations, Till takes customers with him on an energetic exploration through his use of colors and essences of nature, but also to an individual body consciousness. This time, the main focus is on the colors coral, green and yellow – colors which symbolize the beauty and health products,” says KOMBINATROTWEISS.

“Yellow, for instance, stands for the radiant energy of vitamin C. In combination with citrus fruits, it brings about a magnificent feeling – like the fond memory of the last day of summer.” Till Wellm explains.

In addition, post cards with motifs of the dm shop window designs are also on display at the cash registers. That way, customers can take home an atmospheric photo from the world of dm. The collages will adorn the facades of dm stores through the end of June.
