During 2016 we have been working intensively on the visual design for a new permanent exhibition founded by “Stiftung Typographie des Terrors”. More about the project will soon be to find in our Portfolio.
To develop a graphic concept and design for an exhibition about “Language” at the German Hygiene Museum in Dresden. The exhibition needed a graphic thread to connect the in total four departments and the entrance space.
Striking graphics and clear colours makes it easy for everyone to read, see and understand.
Through iconic and surprising setups we created a narrative visual language to transport the different topics – An invitation for the visitor to play and experience with all senses.

Visual Concept & Art Direction
Between two Stools
A new permanent exhibition at NS-Zwangsarbeit in Berlin Schöneweide needed a concept and graphic design. The former forced labour camp in Schöneweide is the largest historical memorial in Europe documenting the destiny of forced labourers. The new exhibition “Between two Stools” deals with the fate of about 650,000 Italian prisoners of war.
The 240m2 exhibition opens in November 2016.
An exhibition with an independent design that shows diversity. The interior, graphics and installations are fragmentarily designed, reflecting the personal stories of the Italian internees who once lived and worked in the camp.
Architecture and Graphic design
During summer 2015 we collaborated with the architects büroberlin on a competion for a new museum project in Stuttgart – a memorial covering the history of Gestapo in the German state Baden-Württemberg. Our concept got ranked as Nr. 2 from the in total 9 participants. Wandel Lorch Architekten from Saarbrücken / Frankfurt am Main was the lucky winners which will realize the project. On a third place hg merz architekten landed. Other participants was Atalier Brückner, Büro Münzig, Hans-Dieter Schaal, Raumzeit Münster, Holzer Kobler Architekten and Kocmoc.net.
The task was to develop a exhibition concept for the former “Hotel Silber” – a building with a lot of history. Once a Hotel, head quarter for the german automobil club ADAC, police residence, location for crimes executed by the nazi led Gestapo institution and more.
Our concept included ideas that intended to be interesting for even younger visitors and school groups offering a lot of interactive tools (developed by schnellebuntebilder). We wanted to take one step back from the common “concrete look” memorials often has.

70 years since the end of second world war is the occasion for the special exhibition “Who was a Nazi?” at the Allied Museum in Berlin. Together with architects FrankeSteinert we were invited to pitch for an exciting exhibition treating themes referred to the political new start in Germany after 1945. Ranked No 2.
Three lead motifs were the source of inspiration for designing the concept of the interior and graphics for the exhibition at the Allied Museum in Berlin. Hide & Seek – the detection of Nazi criminal. Archiving – the processing of documents. New Order – the aim of the Allies was to give the German population a new direction and rebuild the country that had been left in destruction and ruins.
To generate ideas for communication- and event concept for Zino Davidoff at the fair Baselworld in Switzerland 2009. The key objectives were to create awareness and attract the target group – about the brand itself and its product line.
We looked into the changing meanings of luxury as well as re-evaluating the image of the modern man. With these insights as a platform we created ideas for communication and activities, moodboards and visualizations of the fair booth and displays for accessories like bags and watches.
