The pleasant highlight of the winter semester 2014/15 was the degree-show of the University Bielefeld/Design department. The concept for a new corporate design and a digital guide as a webapp were developed and designed by a team of students, taught and supported by Heike Nehl.
Moniteurs wins silver in the category "Healthcare" with "Doctors without Borders" and bronze in the catagory "Wayshowing" with the Signage project for the DGUV. The International Institute for Information Design (IIID) is a global network of individuals and organisations who are interested in optimizing information and information systems for knowledge transfer in everyday life.
Heike Nehl and Sibylle Schlaich have been invited to talk at Haus Wellensiek in Bielefeld on the 11th of February. They will be asking the following questions: how does digital media support orientation and what role does analogue information play in the orientation systems of spaces? How can both worlds compliment each other? Through their work with orientation systems, the design office wishes to show how rapidly change has been accomplished, not least in the mind of the visitor/user.
The jury has awarded second place to the design by kadawittfeldarchitektur and Moniteurs. The requirement was to develop a structural corporate design for the representation of the Federal Republic of Germany abroad. “The discovery of lightness” formed the basis of the concept. The new offices were designed to be light, open, friendly and trustworthy like the society they represent. The elegant corporate design should convey a positive, future-looking impression abroad.
The Association of German Architects (BDA) wishes to redevelop and improve its internet presence. Suitable applicants were invited to compete in a closed competition. The pitch by Moniteurs, together with null2, was the winner.
Moniteurs designed the communication media for the colloquium "Constructive engineering" at the Institute of Construction Engineering of the TU Berlin. The series of lectures picks up the latest, important and most interesting issues, for example the culture of bridge building in Berlin. Engineers from planning offices, administrations, building enterprises and students shall discuss and brought together.
