Claudia Bernhardt

from Berlin

"On 02.04.2004 I founded the label istprodukt in Berlin. Everything started at the Comics Festival 2003. I was there with Mrs Unterburg and we needed a common name for the catalog: we called us "Ritterburg_Istprodukt".

"ist" derives from "being" and describes the present; "produkt" comes from "Product": the thing that can be attached, dressed, or carried around. All together that is "istprodukt".

My first istprodukts were handmade buttons. I drew the designs directly in front of the festival-goers and made them with a borrowed button machine. Since then the range and the choice of motifs has increased."
