We form an impression of the project, then give it expression. We design posters, curate exhibitions and lay out the catalogs that go with them. We do field research and bind it into a book, or put a video channel online. We give people the voices and tools they need to get involved in the world they want to live in. We design communication, comprehensively and completely.
The »Franckeschen Stiftungen zu Halle« are one of Germany’s oldest institutions for social education and an umbrella organization for a divers range of educational opportunities. Our approach to the re-design of Francke’s corporate design merges equally the foundations rich history and their progressive aspirations.
