Moni­teurs ini­ti­ated the “In­fo­tracks” pro­ject in con­junc­tion with De­sign­mai 2006. It is a pho­to­graphic col­lec­tion of graph­ics and ty­pog­ra­phy seen in the ur­ban space of Berlin. As such it shows how sym­bols, colours and struc­tures shape a city and what vi­sual lan­guage the city speaks. In the web-based im­age archive, di­rec­tions are given from the Moni­teurs of­fice to the De­signcity ex­hi­bi­tion hall. The lo­ca­tion of each photo is recorded on a map of Berlin. The “vis­i­tor” re­traces the var­i­ous routes. He fo­cuses on var­i­ous themes. He dis­cov­ers trails and paths along which he moves every day.
