The worldwide reknown German Research Centre for Geosciences, Helmholz Centre GFZ in Potsdam, launches tomorrow the exhibition „Fokus Erde”. We are proud to take part in this exhibition with a new poster on earthquake statistics. The poster based on our tsunami poster, yet with a very different appearance and an advanced information design showing about 5000 earthquakes. Also unique: The earthquakes will update in real time! So everytime a new event happens, it will be displayed in the poster. This is great progress for us in the dynamisation of our scientific poster format. The poster is launched in a beta version and will continually grow in its content during the exhibition.

We feel very honored to be awarded with the innovation prize of our hometown, the City of Kiel!
The official statement:
(…) „The Science Communication Lab (www.scicom-lab.com) is awarded with the Innovation Prize 2017 of the City of Kiel. Tom Duscher, Professor of Interactive Media at the Muthesius University of Art and Design, has founded the company together with his graduate student Konrad Rappaport and the master student Hermann Hartung. Complex subjects from the science and industry are visualized and displayed on interactive posters in a simplified manner using modern technology and attractive design. By using a touch screen, the viewers decide the depth of information on the topics themselves. For this development, the young entrepreneurs already received two international design awards.”(…)

“Technology against Terror” is a radio documentary of the science reporter Ralf Krauter about the research on safety technologies against terrorist attacks. Produced for the German radio station Deutschlandfunk.
Together with Ralf Krauter, the Science Communication Lab developed a concept for the interactive visualization of events and data related to terrorist attacks. Our networking partner design studio “Alle Wetter“ now created a technically sophisticated website.
While the audio is streaming, you can start your own research in the extensive data on the funding projects in the fight against terrorism. With an interactive timeline the figures, facts and background information are getting transparent.
We had a great time at the visualized conference in New York at 6th October. In the new building of Parsons New School at 5th Avenue an audience of about 500 people interested in the communication of information and data visualization came together to listen to 16 speakers. It was a perfect overview about the current and pioneering topics and trends in the visualization and communication scene and we are so proud of having been part of it! It turned out that the subject of science communication found a new meaning for many designers and scientists and we had interesting discussions about our projects.

The renown Karlsruhe Institute for Technology and their research unit for science communication examinend how presentators benefit by the support of our Interactive Sciencific Poster. At the same time the audiences attendance was evaluated with eyetrackers. That all happend at the exhibition boat MS Wissenscchaft with participation of the marine scienentists Prof. Sebastian Krastel from Christian Albrechts University in Kiel and with Judith Engler, Oskar Oldorf and Prof Christian Berndt from Geomar, Helmholz Centre for ocean research. Thank you very much for your support! Now we are very excited to learn about the insights of this evaluation.

MS Wissenschaft, the exihibtion boat of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, will start its tour in Kiel from 03.05. – 08.05.2016. And on board there will be the new version of the Next Generation Scientific Poster! Together with scientists of th cluster of excellence “Future Ocean” we developed a completley new information structure and designed a interactive globe as a main navigation tool. Now evry content is retrievable in the same manner and mapped on the globe. “It is definitely the next level of design”, Konrad says. Best you try yourself and come to the world premiere to Kiel! And here you’ll find all tour dates of the MS Wissenschaft to get in touch next to your city.

It was a big event with over 1000 guests at Frankfurt Messe. On Feburary 12th we have been awarded with the gold price of the German Design Award 2016 for the excellent interaction design of our Next Generation Scientific Poster. We are so happy and proud about this prize! It motivates us to continue to create outstanding design.
Jurystatement:“Next Generation Scientific Poster is an outstanding research project that makes it possible to interactively convey an extremely complex topic in a self-explanatory and effective way. The information is so intelligently formatted that the user can determine the depth of information using the touch screen. The visually appealing interface was designed based on the gamification principle and is intuitive as well as fun to use for researching various content and topics and getting to the bottom of things. The poster offers flexible usage possibilities and is suitable for expositions, confer- ences or internal presentations of research projects and demonstrates the fact that even scientific topics can be presented attractively.”
