As 2017 draws to a close and the festivities begin, our offices will close from 16th December 2017 until 4th January 2018. We take this opportunity to wish our network of customers, suppliers and partners a very happy and smooth entry into the new year 2018.
Since the company’s founding in 2011, Design & Data has grown in its service offering of “Digital Visual Communications Solutions”. Through our creative spirit we have taken on new challenges to become thought leaders for the space and science industry.
The Communicator Awards is the leading international awards programme, recognising big ideas in marketing and communications. It receives over 6000 entries from companies and agencies of all sizes, making it one of the largest of its kind in the world. And we won one of the best websites in the category of ‘Features-User Interface’ with the ‘Lunar Exploration Interactive Documentary’ we conceived, designed and developed for ESA.
In a new and ambitious project, we are excited to have launched ‘Bake In Space’, which seeks to address the scientific and technical challenges relating to the production of fresh bread in space. Design & Data has formed a subsidiary company under the same name.
Since we launched the concept of ‘Spaceoneers’ we have been interacting with the new space community, to find out how startup founders got started, what motivates them and what trends and technologies they think will affect their business models in the near future. After a successful test phase, we are pleased to reveal the new design of our site.
After a successful mission, our “space-certified” Rosetta plush toy is now up for charity. Proceeds from an Indiegogo campaign will go to Universe Awareness (UNAWE) in support of their work in ‘inspiring every child with our wonderful cosmos’ and to continue Rosetta’s legacy.
Following a successful launch and safe return to Earth we have been analysing the large amount of footage from our #RosettaStrato mission. We are pleased to finally reveal a fun video, which includes the key moments of the launch of a Rosetta plush toy to the stratosphere and its subsequent recovery.
