Das war 2022 - der s.wert Jahresrückblick

That was 2022 - the s.wert annual review

January: The new year begins with a brilliant appearance at the Ornaris Bern , where our Swiss partner Printhouse.Art presents 60 new Swiss motifs. We have created graphics from Appenzell to Zurich and these are now available as posters, folded cards and postcards.

February: We now have around 100 Berlin poster motifs in various formats. The Berlin TV Tower can often be seen in the background. Time for a TV tower poster that stars the Berlin landmark.

It's dark - it's cold. And with Russia attacking Ukraine, the world is getting even darker and colder. Illustrations are created for figures from the Basel carnival and the Swabian-Alemannic carnival. With the hope of driving away winter and evil.

March: We, or one of our illustrations, can be seen on the cover of the Berlin TIP magazine . The topic is the comeback of the record and the housing shortage in Berlin.

April: While the world keeps going crazy, something like normality has returned to our store in Berlin after two years of the pandemic. Tourists are in the city, Berliners are traveling and recently dancing has been allowed in Berlin clubs again. We have several new Berlin coasters in our program. Sometimes drinking is supposed to help.

May: We start working on the Frankfurt poster and postcard collection. A good dozen “Mainhattan” motifs can now be seen in our online shop . In our studio we have created space for the new prints with several plan cabinets and shelves. Some of the cabinets had delivery times of more than six months - "the new normal 2022".

June: Little by little Corona gets the whole team. Luckily at a different time and without a difficult course. After we are through there, we enjoy the Berlin summer to the fullest with our XL bath towels and the tarpaulin bags . This does not mean the 9 euro ticket that has been available since the beginning of June. The printing press in our studio is running hot because we are printing Berlin shirts in new, bright colors.

July: We've never finished the s.wert calendar so early. On the one hand, we had a lot of fun with the topic “music”. On the other hand, the paper had to be ordered from the printer in February – the keyword being the paper crisis. The edition of 600 calendars is sold out in December.

A novelty - we have designed a second calendar in which we show 12 Swiss views on the subject of water. This also sells so well that only two copies are left at the turn of the year.

August: But not everything that is new is positive. This year Sandra had a new experience that she would have gladly done without. She is the accused in court. In May 2021, a letter with an invoice for allegedly anti-competitive behavior fluttered into the house. Within a year, the costs have increased from a few hundred euros to a five-digit amount. The verdict will come in August. Acquittal. Unfortunately, the warning pirates appealed in September. This process will now drag on for several years.

September: We hit the ground running – to Munich. Because we also want to design posters and postcards for the beautiful city in Bavaria. At the same time, the new models from our Von den Socks collection arrive in Berlin.

The Munich posters can already be found in our online shop . The collection will continue to grow.

October: This October is warm. Strictly speaking, it is the warmest October since weather records began. So it's fitting that we now have Berlin bracelets in our range. Feels like Summer!

November: At some point they will come – the wintry temperatures and the November gray. So gray and foggy that you can't even see the TV tower. It's a good thing that we have the colorful Berlin hoodies with our trademark - the graphically reduced TV tower ball - in our program to lift our spirits.

December: That was in 2022. Despite everything, we draw a positive balance from this year and thank all customers and supporters. New plans have already been outlined and we are looking forward to 2023.
