Shape the future

Looking back ahead: As a free gift for students and tomorrow’s makers who met at Mannheim-Based design conference captcha 2017, we designed a poster with the headline „Shape the future“. We still have some copies in store and will give them away as a real boost for the new year. Just go ahead and like this post and receive one of 20 free copies!

We have designed the complete brand identity for Mindshift.One – including website, logo and promotional material. In addition, we have been supporting the Mannheim-based consulting firm by designing the slides of a presentation about innovation management. Managing director Tatjana took these slides to Open Nation 2017 where she was invited to give a presentation. Our challenge had been to devise a design that would convey the spirit of Mindshift.One and inspire marketing professionals from big shot companies like IKEA, Tesla and others.

We served up the whole platter of Keynote features and gadgets and – according to various witnesses – succeeded. The audience caught the spirit and the presentation sparked a lot of interest … We are proud and happy! ;–)

Disco Zwei – Raw Materials

Raw vegetables for gourmets: With "Raw Materials“, Mannheim-based night club „Disco Zwei“ brought together the crème-de-la-créme of the techno underground scene for a series of club dates. We designed the posters for these nights featuring Vakula, Cem, Blawan et al. Fittingly, we revisited the 1990’s and drew up some handmade-cut-up-and-copy-shop style. Needless to say that every visual theme relates to the artist in question.

Multihalle Mannheim

"You have to think, research, develop … and venture more“ – this quote from Frei Otto, architect of the Mannheim Multihalle, is the leitmotif for the campaign the City of Mannheim started to save this building, meanwhile in need of rehabilitation, inside the Herzogenriedpark. Built for the National Garden Festival (BUGA) in 1975, it now has protected status and is considered a masterpiece of architecture and engineering. With concepts on urban development going far beyond mere conservation, the hall shall return to public focus again.

We are very pleased to participate in this process and support the project concerning design for print and online media.
