Artist Edition Toothbrushes 🎈

Dinamo Birthday Cake Final Landscape Hi Res

It’s 10 years of Dinamo today! To celebrate, we invited a group of friends we met along the way to design toothbrushes for us. Generous as we are, we gave them 75 x 6mm to express themselves.

Toothbrush 4 Actual Source

JP HAYNIE, ACTUAL SOURCE

What was the last thing you did today?
I just unpacked my bags from a trip to New York. Publishing is a heavy business!

And the worst?
I flew home from NY. I tend to be a homebody and I really don’t love flying or being in airports so this is something I did not enjoy. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

What do you make sure to practice every day?
I try to play my instrument everyday (guitar) because I love it and it helps me relax.

What brush-type are you?
I prefer a medium brush… a little easier on the gumz!

Toothbrush 6 May Kim

MAY KIM, GRAPHIC DESIGNER

What was the last thing you did today?
I took my laptop out to get some work done at Starbucks.

And the worst?
I got lazy and ordered McDonald’s by delivery… Please don’t judge.

What do you make sure to practice every day?
I’m a very anxious person, so on a daily basis I practice keeping peace of mind. It’s important to stay mentally healthy, for both mind and body!

What brush-type are you?
Soft bristles! But I do like the airplane brushes because they are wide.

Toothbrush 7 Brian Roettinger

BRIAN ROETTINGER, PERRON-ROETTINGER

What was the last thing you did today?
Looked at some gold material samples to see... is it too reflective? Does it look like gold or brass?

And the worst?
Continuously blew my nose. Not covid, just that old classic cold.

What do you make sure to practice every day?
Drink lots of water, stay hydrated. Water is the all-mighty healer.

What brush-type are you?
Medium weight!

Toothbrush 3 Kaiser Haifisch

ANNA HAIFISCH, CARTOONIST, AND ANJA KAISER, GRAPHIC DESIGNER

What was the last thing you did today?
Anna: I sharpened colored pencils.
Anja: I read an article about speech bubbles in medieval manuscripts.

And the worst?
Anna: Driving the car 1 km to the supermarket.
Anja: Running behind my own schedule.

What do you make sure to practice every day?
Anna: Drawing?
Anja: I like to collect references, create small archives, and also writing accompanies me more and more in the last years.

What brush-type are you?
Anna: Soft.
Anja: Hard.

Toothbrush 8 Giliane Cachin

GILIANE CACHIN, GRAPHIC DESIGNER

What was the last thing you did today?
Design. I was in that purely experimental phase. And right before that, I had some friends surprise visit me. I get a lot of studio visits, which is also part of my daily practice!

And the worst?
I was going to the midwife this morning, but I’m terrible with my phone at the moment and I didn’t look at it. I went to the other side of town, but she had canceled.

What do you make sure to practice every day?
Part of my daily practice is to test things, to experiment with process, and that then often becomes visible in my visual outcomes.

What brush-type are you?
I'm 100% a soft bristles kind of girl ;)

Toothbrush 5 Larissa Kasper

LARISSA KASPER, KASPER-FLORIO

What was the last thing you did today?
Edit a poster consisting of a thousand small book pages by censoring all the images in the layouts. It’s a bit of a Sisyphean task for a Monday but I need to make it work before the end of the day, as it’s the deadline.

And the worst?
It’s not that dramatic. But I wanted to buy groceries and the card paying system was down, and I only had ten cents in my pocket.

What do you make sure to practice every day?
My most important daily practice this year has been with my dog, Oki. She’s a rescue, and she’s been very anxious since puppyhood. Instead of tricks we need to practice simple, every day things, to get her feeling comfortable in the city.

What brush-type are you?
My dentist says I’m not allowed to use the hard bristles, because I use too much pressure. Even though I’d prefer them, I have to use the soft ones. But I might risk it all for the Dinamo brushes!

Toothbrush 9 Folder Studio

JON GACNIK, TAKUMI AKIN, AND WESLEY CHOU, FOLDER STUDIO

What was the last thing you did today?
Morning stroll and coffee near the office. Reviewed proofs. Ate a delicious salad.

And the worst?
After all the above, we ate Krispy Kreme donuts. 😮‍💨

What do you make sure to practice every day?
Healthy habits. We all tend to get in the “zone,” which is great from a productivity standpoint, but it’s easy to neglect the necessary habits in between like taking breaks, sitting up straight, going on walks, and most importantly brushing our teeth!

What brush-type are you?
Wesley: Medium.
Jon: Hard.
Takumi: Soft.

Toothbrush 2 Oliver Shaw

OLIVER SHAW, FRIEND EDITIONS

What was the last thing you did today?
I just packed up some zines to send to customers. The zine was I FEEL GOOD by Ben Kopp. Published by me (Friend Editions). It’s cool, it comes with a tattoo transfer sheet.

And the worst?
I left my phone at home, but it’s only 10am.

What do you make sure to practice every day?
Most mornings (especially Monday) I like to come in my studio a little early and take care of personal or logistical matters before doing any “real work.” It clears my mind and relaxes me for some reason.

What brush-type are you?
Hard af.

Toothbrush 10 Rebecca Stephany

REBECCA STEPHANY, GRAPHIC DESIGNER AND EDUCATOR

What was the last thing you did today?
I was preparing slides for the semester introduction for the program I teach in Kassel.

And the worst?
I spent too much time reading the news on the phone… I definitely have a difficult relationship with it.

What do you make sure to practice every day?
I’m working on trying to take more breaks. Meaningless breaks — just to be outside, look at the buildings, the sky. We’re so easily cramped in with never-ending to do lists, and sometimes we just need time to do nothing.

What brush-type are you?
I have a sonic electric toothbrush. With it, the bristles aren’t so important — it’s all about the slow movement and angle.

Toothbrush 1 Scott Barry

SCOTT BARRY, ROSE LOS ANGELES

What was the last thing you did today?
Walked Ozzie the dog.

And the worst?
Actually, not so bad of a day. Can’t even think of anything bad.

What do you make sure to practice every day?
I’m not much for routines actually! Every day I try as hard as I can to break the routine :)

What brush-type are you?
Whisper soft.

Box Design Details

It would be a real challenge to handle this many brushes if they weren't held together by something, so our ADs Mathias and Sascia made a box. Designing this cardboard playground was one thing, but sweet-talking the brush and packaging producers was another. They managed both gracefully. Now let's take a moment to admire the details.
