Die Fast Forward Science-Auszeichnung ist in unseren Händen! Nach dem höchst erfreulichen Abschneiden beim diesjährigen Wettbewerb von „Wissenschaft im Dialog“ und dem Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft haben wir nun den Preis entgegengenommen. Dafür reisten unsere Geschäftsführer Sebastian und Björn nach Berlin, wo das Expertenkomitee, vertreten durch Martin Meister (Chefredakteur GEO International), sie mit der Ehrung bedachte.
Annually the Academy of Interactive & Visual Arts honors the best companies in the domain of marketing, communication, creativity and media. And we won two Awards for Excellence: one of the best online-video for our cartoon “Once Upon A Time…Rosetta” and one of the best websites for our microsite “10 Years on Mars Express”.
The story of the satellite “Rosetta” and the lander “Philae” sounds like a fairy tale. Once upon a time, both of them embark on a journey to the far away comet „67P/Tschurjumow-Gerassimenko“. They want to show the world what the primordial matter of the solar system is like. But before they could actually arrive at the comet, they fell into a deep sleep. All is well, because the satellite could wake up on time to prepare for its impending task. Design & Data produced a charming cartoon for the ESA which describes the previous journey of Rosetta and her companion Philae.
How time flies by – Design & Data is in business for exactly three years. On the occasion of our anniversary, we prepared a showreel which presents our most beautiful and most interesting projects. The showreel includes the versatile areas of our work – from shots in the desert to animations and motion design right up to the newly produced ESA cartoon.
The DLR (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt) is very engaged in the exploration of Mars. The DLR is involved in the ESA mission „Mars Express“ by providing the high resolution 3D camera, HRSC. This camera reveals a lot about the composition of the Red Planet. We produced a DVD for the DLR, in which the experts of the research center review the latest status of Mars research in bilingual interviews. The DVD is called „Mars – A planet full of riddles“.
A weather map is an everyday tool for most of us. But the science which makes it possible, is anything but everyday. It requires the talented minds of a lot competent scientists – like the ones at the ECWMF. The European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECWMF) is the global market leader in numerical weather forecasts. They always look for better ways to forecast the weather. We present such weather experts in our new video.
The year is taking big steps towards its end. Therefore, we want to thank all our customers for making this one of the best and most exciting years for Design & Data. We bid farewell on December 23rd 2013 for our company holiday and return in good spirits in the next year on January 6th 2014.
The alarm goes off every morning – sometimes even for satellites. The ESA (European Space Agency) satellite Rosetta has gone into deep-space hibernation on its way to a comet for over three years. On January the 20th 2014 at 10am GMT, its systems will wake up again – right on time to prepare for its destination and the related comet’s examination. Speaking of waking up – we produced a teaser-video for the social media campaign of ESA, which will arouse even the late riser. #WakeUpRosetta.
Instead of measuring distances in units of length, “iGeolise” focuses on the time you need to cover the distance. The company wants to improve apps and online-maps. “Interasight” develops imaging systems to detect food contaminants; so global food delivery will be safer and cheaper. But both of those ideas would still be ideas without the help of the ESA Business Incubation Centre (BIC). The BIC supports numerous start-ups to develop their ideas into products. Design & Data shot a corporate video about the ESA BIC in Harwell, England, which should attract the attention of the upcoming stars in the start-up world.
