The Adobe Museum of Digital Media just opened a new exhibition called »InForm – turning data into meaning« curated by executive editor of Wired Magazine, Thomas Goetz. For several years he explored how data could come to live and be visualized in ways that help us to understand our actions and environments. In this exhibition he has selected works that exemplify this potential of data to render meaning. The exhibition showcases a range of projects by different visual pioneers who convert raw data into compelling visualizations and beautiful displays. We are proud that our Skype Visualization is part of that fantastic selection of projects by artists like Aaron Koblin, Moritz Stefaner and Eric Fischer, just to mention some.

Tim Leong, art director at Wired magazine about the exhibition:
This exhibit celebrates a new generation of visual pioneers—part graphic designers, part statisticians, part artists—who have a faculty for turning data into meaning, often with beauty and urgency we don’t expect from data. In this exhibit, we have asked them to turn their talents to help us see what we do when we log on. Strictly speaking, these are simply visual displays of quantitative information. But in their beauty, clarity, and urgency, these visualizations don’t just tell us about our world, on- and off-line; they tell us about ourselves, through and through.

Corporate Design Award for Actelion Imagery Wizard

August 8th, 2011 - 2:19 pm

»The best relaunch of a company CD and award,« was the opinion of the jury when the Corporate Design Prize 2011 was awarded. Juror Wolfgang Seidl described the project as »Magic! A great idea with a fall height and a distinctive character.«
“Create a new identity for our brand Actelion. Don’t touch the logo, but create something the world of pharma has not seen before.” Based on the idea “From medical industry to medical magic,” a new image was developed that rendered medicine’s invisible magical moment visible. Here, the new imagery is based on the smallest possible unit: digital molecules. These capture the magical moment when new medicine arises from molecules; innovative design for a company that supplies the world with innovations. We worked closely together with Interbrand in creating the graphic imagery and developed a tool for automatic image generation that enables the generation of a unique, in-itself homogeneous graphic image world out of heterogeneous visual material. The new corporate image was created for the publication of the company’s 2010 business report and continues to evolve in its website.

Computerarts Magazine
A while ago we were approached by computerArts magazine to talk about how new technology can help us to turn creative visions into reality and the question if technology itself already spark off ideas. This turned out to become a great article in the latest issue 189 called »New Experiments in Digital Design« where one of our latest project »Fragments of RGB« is featured alongside some other great projects and artists like Craig Ward and interaction designer Paul Neave.

I wouldn’t go that far and call it an interview but Tyler Dorholt from The A.N.D Project approached us to take part in their inspiring bullseye project and answer several design related questions about generative design. Beside us there are some other well known design studios like Troika, SoSoLimited and rAndom International just to mention some.
The A.N.D Project is definitely worth a visit.

German Design Award

June 7th, 2011 - 11:02 am

We are happy to be nominated for the »German Design Award 2012« by the German Design Council for the »Generative Gestaltung«-Book

The Design award consists of two discipline but one competition, which differentiates not between communication and product design, but between class and world class. Participating in the 2012 German Design Award means that the entrants are playing in the Champions League. With people who are shaping the future. The competition honors top international achievements that are already setting tomorrow’s standards today. Yet it is not just the entries that are unique, so too are the competition and its independent jury. Internationally renowned ‘experts in excellence’ from both competition disciplines. They honor impressive works, totally impartially. In this they apply a common criterion: For the very best to become standard tomorrow, you have to select something special today.
