Saalbach is more than just one of the most popular ski resorts. Outstanding is the Skicircus with its many rounds: Skicircus Challenge, Saalbach Circuit, Hinterglemm Circuit, Leogang Circuit, Tyrol Circuit. Circus and Circle, Latin “circum” the circle. The round in the center – connected all around.  
User-Centered Design formed our basis for the work process and for all content and conceptual recommendations. Moniteurs looked through the user’s glasses and developed a coherent design and orientation concept.
Our goal was to mesh the character and atmosphere of the site with the requirements of a logical, visually appealing and secure structural corporate design.
The characteristics of the circle – round and soft, sweeping and lively – run through all elements of the guidance system.
