2nd place: Competition for the new Touristic wayfinding system of the city of Prague and its underground railway network

There can only be one winner! Nevertheless, we are incredibly proud of our second place in the two-stage, international competition for the new touristic wayfinding system of the city of Prague as well as its underground railway network. What a challenge, and how great that we, together with Capitale Berlin / Daniel Perraudin (typography), Sheraz Khan (cartography) and Gerit Lippert (UX design), were chosen alongside three other high-calibre teams to develop a vision for future navigation through and around Prague – both over ground and underground! It was one of the most intensive and complex tasks of recent months. And we learned a great deal in the process, naturally...

The competition was staged by Czechdesign (Czech Design Center) on behalf of ROPID (Prague Transport Company).

Wayfinding article in the ZAL Yearbook 2021

The role played by the wayfinding system in its office building for the image of a company is something that the Center of Applied Aeronautical Research in Hamburg (ZAL) is particularly aware of. It creates a distinctive working atmosphere and reinforces the connection between employees and the company. Good orientation once again points the way towards good motivation and team spirit…

We are delighted with a 4-page article in the ZAL Yearbook 2021. You can download the yearbook here.

Cross Innovation Lab 2021: Climate

What happens when transport companies and state infrastructure authorities collaborate with three creative professionals (Ulrich GrenzJonas Voigt and Nathanaël Gourdin) in considering the issue of mobility? The result is exciting and unexpected solutions with a focus on mobility culture and quality of life.

Read more

In the scope of the “Cross Innovation Lab 2021: Climate” initiated by the Hamburg Kreativ Gesellschaft a participative communication concept for a new mobility culture was developed, with the aim of encouraging citizens to practice sustainable mobility, further developing the urban space in the process.

In the form of a competition, an app is used to collect points via CO2 tracking, which can be used to redesign parking spaces (rePlace) for a 6-month period. With the aid of augmented reality, the Parklet modules available for selection (stage, exhibition space, mini market, lounge, cycle repair station…) can be visualised at the chosen location. This will create new spaces of interaction for a city with a high quality of life. The competition format utilises the incentive of creative involvement and participation in mobility transition: the more sustainable the mobility, the more the city becomes a public, vibrant and future-capable habitat – Moving City for Future. 

Concise, fresh and flexible: the MovingHH umbrella brand created for the project serves both the communication process for a new mobility culture in Hamburg and the identification of the Parklets as an initial step. It is designed for both independent use and as an add-on to other brands.

When mobility encourages a change of direction...
