The pandemic has hit all of us in different ways, affecting us both as individuals and as society. This means restrictions on daily life while governments work to decrease case numbers and protect our most vulnerable of citizens. In-person events have been cancelled and group mixing is no longer allowed. This makes it extremely difficult for some professions to carry out their work, such as photographers. We spoke to Nicole Fischer, who trained and worked as a freelance photographer before joining Design & Data (D&D), about her career and how she has adapted to life as a photographer during the pandemic.
Sometimes it’s not the outside world you want to talk to but your own organisation. When implementing complex policies, trying to increase awareness of a particular problem or create culture change, having your staff on board will improve your chances of success. But for them to be on board, your staff need to understand. Here we present four tips on how to run successful internal communication campaigns that will put your messages across in the most efficient way.
Throughout 2020, Design & Data GmbH has worked with Nikal Fm Srl, as managers of the European Space Agency (ESA)’s Conference Bureau, on a range of virtual science conferences discussing major environmental challenges. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, none of these events could have taken place in the real world, but our solutions helped to create an engaging experience bringing the communities together almost as in person.
When we were entering 2020, few of us would have anticipated what the year would become. Shaped, stretched and pushed by the coronavirus pandemic, the whole world has faced unprecedented challenges that have affected us both as individuals and society. For D&D, 2020 was a year of challenges but also a year of successful solutions that we developed to respond to the ‘new normal’.
Design & Data GmbH is working with ESA to generate awareness for the Industry Space Days (ISD) 2020 by developing a communication plan and various media-related materials to help promote the event. The goal is to gather interest within a wider group of potential SMEs to participate.
