2019 German Design Award in Gold for Scientific Poster „Dynamic Planet”

We are so thrilled that the interactive scientific Poster „Dynamic Planet” was awarded with the 2019 German Design in Gold! The Science Communication Lab has already won this prestigious award for the second time. The German Design Award is one of the world’s most renowned design competitions and has a high reputation among experts. For us, it is a unique confirmation that we not only speak of excellent design for science, but that this is also confirmed by the highest committees.

The jury statement:
„The interactive poster, designed under the name “Dynamic Planet”, visualizes the magnitude of earthquakes around the world in real time for the first time. The elaborately designed dynamic display is both fascinating and impressive. An intense visual experience that won’t let you go so quickly.”

Scientific Poster for Mar­ine Mi­cro­bi­o­logy

Dive into the deep sea with our new Scientific Poster for the Max Planck In­sti­tute for Mar­ine Mi­cro­bi­o­logy in Bremen. The interactive poster shows all research habitats of their microbiology resarch. While wandering over the seabed, one can dive deeper into the individual habitats, study the organisms and learn about the processes. Elaborate 3D animations show the individual habitats and enable an almost photorealistic underwater landscape. Dive into it!

See how we create a hyperthermal vent in 3D animation:

Scientific Poster – Mobile Version

For the very first time, we bring our interactive scientific poster on mobile devices. This is perfect to show your scientific research at conferences abroad or to share and explain your topics to a smaller group of colleagues. For us at Science Communication Lab, this flexibility in different media devices is a milestone in the development of exciting scientific communication formats.

The shown interactive scientific poster is called Digital Meta and was developed for the CRC Metaorganism at Christian-Albrechts University Kiel.
It shows microbiome model organisms and explains how hosts do interact with bacteria. More to come about this fascinating research soon…

We are not alone! Brand new Microbiome Scientific Poster

Premiere of our latest Interactive Scientific Poster for CRC1182 Metaorganism on 12. April 2018.

“Digital Meta” is an interactive multimedia exhibit that conveys the complex scientific content of the relationship between host and bacteria. On a 65-inch touchscreen, users can explore the interaction of bacterial symbionts with their multicellular host organisms using five model organisms ranging from humans and wheat plants to nematodes. This experience is controlled with intuitive gestural inputs similar to those on a smartphone or tablet.
Users navigate through the freely combinable information levels of the digital poster and can gain individual access to this actually invisible world. “Our goal is to visualize the abstract concept of the meta-organism in such a way that this fascinating field of research can be experienced immediately and interactively by the general public. We hope that our new exhibit will make this important research topic more visible to society,” emphasizes Tom Duscher, co-founder of the Science Communication Lab and professor for interactive media at Muthesius Kunsthochschule Kiel.

Scientific visualization for @ChristianeLoell and Süddeutsche Zeitung @SZ

Yes, we do not only develop interactive posters but also classical scientific visualization for newspapers! Konrad created this stunning illustrations for Christiane Lölls article „Die Wahl der Waffe” (The choice of weapons) in Germanys renowned Süddeutsche Zeitung. It explains how breast cancer is detected (or not) by different tests. We worked with Christiane on that story also in her article at Substanz magazine where we developed an introductive trailer and a scrollytelling website. So you see, we do a lot of different formats-  and interactive posters, too.

Welcome on bord, Susanne!

Since August 2017 Susanne Landis joined our team. Her position is co-financed by the Innovation Assistance Program of the European Regional Developing Fund and WTSH Schleswig Holstein. Now we are designers and scientists which gives us even more understanding of science communication needs. Susanne has all the insights of academic and scientific processes and is a doctorate evolutionary biologist. But even better: She has experience in teaching and pedagogical concepts as well as illustration skills!

New Scientific Poster „Dynamic Planet” wins Red Dot Award 2017!

The interactive scientific Poster „Dynamic Planet” for the German Research Centre for Geosciences, Helmholz Centre GFZ in Potsdam, has won a Red Dot Award for excellent Design! We are proud to win again one of this internationally renown distinctions. More than 8,000 projects from 50 countries has been submitted.

One of the main advantages of a digital poster is that it can display dynamic content. This is at the same time the essential statement of the scientific poster “Dynamic Planet”: our earth never stands still, is permanently shaken by earthquakes. These tensions are measured by the GFZ and the data are visualized in real-time in an interactive poster in the exhibition context.

Innovation Award Ceremony

On July 25th 2017 the award ceremony of the science and innovation award took place in the historic city hall of Kiel. It was a graceful event with great musicians and well-disposed guests. But best of all was the laudation of Prof. Dr. Thomas Bosch, in which great honor was given to us. We could not be happier to be in such excellent company with Prof. Dr. Ruth Schmitz-Streit and Prof. Dr. Roland Eisele. And even the mayor of Kiel had us on his Facebook page!- So, what more can we achieve?
