Deep Dive Award Winners | EAO AG
In his presentation project manager Stephan Hakuba walks us through the project “Series 09 Rugged CAN Keypads”, an award winner in the Product category in the 2021 UX Design Awards.

Details

[ Registration for the Deep Dive is open here on zoom ]

The Series 09 Rugged CAN Keypads are designed for E1 applications and functional safety in accordance with various standards as well as an intelligent control with CAN bus integration. The devices also offer excellent tactile feedback and are clearly visible day and night due to the powerful RGB LED four-segment halo and LED symbol illumination. The customizable illumination provides the operator with excellent visual feedback and is combined with a unique, contemporary design.

Head of the jury Pelin Celik describes what the jury found remarkable about the project:
“This product, which at first glance appears to be relatively simple, impresses with its well-considered design. Its flexibility and adaptivity provide an outstanding experience that is precisely geared to its user base. The light rings are a new and efficient way to introduce intelligence in this use case.”

The Deep Dive will be moderated by Ake Rudolf, Head of Strategy / Award Director at the International Design Center Berlin (IDZ).

CNBC digital Meetup mit Daniel Gebhardt
Webinar: How to negotiate and build trust with Chinese partners

Details

China is a country of sharp contrasts: Millennia-old traditions, a strong state government, and high technology shape this huge country and its mentalities. Against this background, communicating with Chinese business partners conceals many imponderables. Negotiation situations are shaped not only by linguistic barriers but also by different self-perceptions of cultures. What do you have to consider when negotiating projects? How do you build the necessary trust together?
We are thrilled to announce Daniel Gebhardt, Consultant and Lecturer, answering these questions in our next digital “Go to China” Meet-up on Zoom.

see 15 Conference
The see-Conference presents at Schlachthof Wiesbaden current trends on the topic of “Visualization of Information” and thus provides insights into areas such as design, architecture, performance, film, art, technology, research and communication.

Details

CREATIVE MINDS AND THINKERS
Alongside data visualisation, the see-Conference today focuses increasingly on sustainable concepts and, therefore, on how illustration can enable society’s truths to prevail over the flood of information. At the same time, visitors at see take home more than a free t-shirt: It inspires them.

Our speakers are inspirational, always opening up new perspectives on how to effectively communicate about the impact of today’s actions on the society and environment of future generations. Interdisciplinary leading creative minds and thinkers from the fields of design, art, architecture, journalism, philosophy, technology and business take centre stage. And they all share a common vision: They want to make a contribution to society at a high aesthetic level.
