eisbach surfers

the eisbach (ice river) in munich has a long history of being used for surfing. locals told me that the tradition started when a rail was installed at the bottom of the river in order to oxygenate the water for fish. the wave caused by this attracted so many surfers that the sport was banned for some time. recently though, the ban was lifted, which caused an active surfing scene to spring back up in landlocked munich. even in december when i took these pictures, surfers were lining up to jump in the ice-cold water. eisbach on wikipedia; video about the eisbach on youtube

item page
item page, suggested items sections

marmorstein jewelry is handmade in a colorful, cute and elegant style that is partly inspired by the 2000s. the name means “marble stone”, and is a traditional jewish name, taken from the founder and designer lili. the name of the brand is therefore not only a reference to lili’s heritage, but also the craft.

goal of the design was to create an atmosphere which complements this style in its liveliness, but stays classy and somewhat timeless. in terms of ui, the philosophy was to stay within expectations of an online shop, with details to make the experience unique and true to the brand.

main logo of marmorstein, the stone mark.
the butterfly mark is adapted from the butterfly in the main logo, optimized to be legible at small sizes – for example for the customized typeface.
