Heike Nehl, Sibylle Schlaich and Isolde Frey talk with Jür­gen Siebert about their book "1:1 Sig­nage, Ori­en­ta­tion, Iden­tity" at The Read­ing Room, Berlin

Process

In­ter­ac­tion

We are de­sign­ers and we de­sign our en­vi­ron­ment – vi­su­ally. Our work is char­ac­terised by in­tense, con­tin­u­ous di­a­logue with our clients. Our top pri­or­ity is to get to the heart of a lo­ca­tion or a cor­po­rate iden­tity, bring­ing with us only the high­est qual­ity of de­sign. This in­spires us to de­velop in­di­vid­ual so­lu­tions that seam­lessly com­bine de­sign and func­tion.

Part­ner

Dy­namic

In the process we in­te­grate the dif­fer­ent com­pe­tences of our part­ners: Me­dia con­cep­tion, Cod­ing, Mov­ing im­ages, Cor­po­rate fonts. This al­lowes us to de­velop well-thought-out con­cepts and we can ac­com­pany the re­al­iza­tion in all stages. Where every­thing should func­tion dy­namic and mod­u­lar – should every­thing be­ing de­vel­oped in a dy­namic and mod­u­lar process.

In­ten­sity

Ex­change

To­gether with our clients, we work out first the ob­jec­tives, and then the in­di­vid­ual com­mu­ni­ca­tion me­dia. Con­sul­ta­tion and con­cep­tion, par­tic­u­larly in the early stages of a pro­ject, are al­ways an es­sen­tial part of our work. To that end, in­ten­sive di­a­logue ex­change is an im­por­tant part of our phi­los­o­phy. No mat­ter what the pro­ject, we ap­ply to it the same level of in­ten­sity.

In­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary

Me­di­a­tion

We are an in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary team: com­mu­ni­ca­tion de­sign­ers from dig­i­tal and print me­dia work along­side ar­chi­tects and prod­uct de­sign­ers. We de­velop ori­en­ta­tion sys­tems and cor­po­rate de­sign con­cepts, de­sign ex­hi­bi­tions and trade fairs, print prod­ucts and dig­i­tal ap­pli­ca­tions. These ar­eas of work are closely in­ter­con­nected and the bound­aries are blurred. Dig­i­tal me­dia stands in re­la­tion to the over­all ap­pear­ance of a com­pany; every cor­po­rate de­sign also has spa­tial as­pects – in every area the iden­tity is re­flected. With our fo­cus on cor­po­rate de­sign and in­for­ma­tion de­sign, we want to in­form peo­ple, pro­vide con­tent, give them a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing, in­spire them and show them the way. Our main in­ter­est is in the sys­tem, the con­struc­tion of an over­ar­ch­ing con­cept that we can fol­low.

Con­ti­nu­ity

Ex­pe­ri­ence

Since the found­ing of the com­pany in 1994, we have car­ried out many na­tional and in­ter­na­tional pro­jects to­gether, and our work is con­tin­u­ously con­firmed through pre­sit­gious de­sign awards. The part­ners also teach at var­i­ous uni­ver­si­ties at home and abroad. Our ex­pe­ri­ences and our net­works of pro­gram­ming, eval­u­a­tion and pro­duc­tion en­rich us, and we use the var­i­ous facets and knowl­edge gained from our years of ex­pe­ri­ence to in­crease the ef­fec­tive­ness of our work. At the same time, many things are in a state of con­tin­u­ous change, and so de­vel­op­ment and change are nat­u­rally a part of our work, al­low­ing in­no­v­a­tive so­lu­tions to arise.
