The family name Pook is written in Japanese in a katakana phonetic translation using the characters “pu” and “ku”. Katakana (Jap. 片仮名 or カタカナ) is a syllabary, a set of symbols that represent syllables. Besides hiragana, it is the second Japanese syllabary. Each katakana symbol stands as a syllabogram either for a vowel or a consonant with the following vowel. Since my wife is Japanese and my children are half Japanese I am trying to learn this language.


Anleger Finanzmagazin

Conception and design of the Anleger Finanzmagazin for the Hypovereinsbank.

An investors’ financial magazine was conceived and designed for the Hypovereinsbank. Through the unusual selection of images, the abstract themes of a financial services provider acquire an emotional dimension and thus also greater interest value.
