Surprise and engage your
audience with visual experiences

Learning is a lifelong journey. Our work explores the most interesting destinations and expands how people experience the stories that have yet to be told, learn the events of long ago or understand abstract scientific ideas. We use vivid, informative and absorbing visual storytelling to create meaningful experiences that inform, inspire and motivate people to keep learning.

Finding the story in unexplored data

Case Study: Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra

THE HEART-RACING SYMPHONY

The Grammy-winning Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra tasked us with enhancing their annual program. In partnership with musicians, we illustrated the athleticism of Maestro Mariss Jansons, mapped BRSO tours and turned a unique data set into an intimate look into the passion that goes into every performance.

GATHERING THE DATA
AT THE HEART OF THE MATTER

Four musicians and conductor Daniel Harding were connected to ECG recorders. The resulting measurements showed that the conductor’s heart beat at the same rate as a Formula 1 race car driver.

BEYOND THE CONCERT HALL

The ECG recordings became a key visual for the BRSO’s season, providing the title image of its annual program and an album. The program featured a total of 21 unique infographics that included data visualizations, world maps, illustrated journeys, timelines and even a graphic built in LEGO blocks.

LET EACH STORY MAKE A LASTING IMPACT

How you tell a story has an effect on how it’s understood. We employ the right methods
– from illustrations, data visualizations, cardboard models and 3D rendering on printed paper, across social media platforms and in apps – to ensure the message gets across on any channel.

Posters to the people

Case Study: State Museum of Prehistory Halle

500 YEARS OF REFORMATION

We were challenged by a cooperation of museums from the US and Germany to build an open collection detailing the Reformation with a focus on its father, Martin Luther. The exhibition – called HERE I STAND – crosses borders with posters for download and 3D printing instructions for items that invite people to follow Luther’s footsteps.

REFORMING THE
MUSEUM EXPERIENCE

HERE I STAND used infographic illustrations, 3D object renderings, comic-style storytelling, cartography and data visualization to tell the stories of Reformation. By straddling the virtual and the real, the exhibition can also be accessed by anyone – a fitting tribute to the man whose work provided universal access to the Bible.

DIGITIZING
THE RENAISSANCE AGE

A responsive microsite for HERE I STAND maps the movement, outlines the church structures and illustrates Luther’s critics. It’s a series of stories that can be explored by virtually anyone, anywhere. The virtual can also become reality through 30 printable posters and 20 objects that can be built with a 3D printer.

The Reformation
around the World

Taking inspiration from Luther’s achievement of making the Bible available to the masses, our poster exhibition has been translated into 10 languages and displayed around the world, in cities like Washington, D.C., Seoul, Nairobi, Bogota and Berlin, renewing interest in the Reformation in experts and neophytes alike.

History enhanced

Case Study: Berlin Wall Foundation

RE-MAPPING
THE BERLIN WALL

Working together with the Berlin Wall Foundation, we wanted to provide visitors with the scope and scale of the border wall that continues to define our home city. Our designers, researchers and cartographers studied nearly 100 aerial photos of the Berlin Wall, plotting each tower and corner as it wove through the city. The resulting exhibition includes the most accurate map of the Berlin Wall in existence.

An overview of the details

The map offered visitors an overview while the poster exhibition provided the details. People could study 3D cross sections of the watchtowers, understand what defined the death strip and see how the wall evolved. The posters also highlighted the changes the Wall brought to everyday things, like garbage removal.

HISTORY IN YOUR HANDS

This project became a personal one for our team. We worked with data, construction schematics and primary sources. To see how we could take those stories even further, we experimented with an augmented reality app that allowed visitors to look inside the structures at home and at various sites around Berlin.

We develop data stories, infographics, tools and environments that enable knowledge.
