Special exhibition "Otl Aicher. Olympia 72" at the Bröhan Museum
From August 26 to October 30, the Bröhan Museum is showing the special exhibition "Otl Aicher. Olympia 72".

Details

Otl Aicher, one of the most important graphic designers of the 20th century, would have turned 100 in 2022. One of his most spectacular projects 50 years ago was the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich. Otl Aicher and his team developed a complete visual identity under the slogan "the cheerful games" for the first time in the history of the Olympic Games, which still sets standards today and has actually remained unrivaled.

The native of Ulm developed signs that everyone knows: stick figures symbolizing the various sports, a telephone receiver symbol, a coffee cup indicating gastronomy - a graphic guidance system. The exhibition presents posters, bulletins and program booklets. Other exhibits, such as the legendary Olympia-Waldi, as well as signs, training suits, hostess dirndls and souvenirs, allow visitors to immerse themselves in the world of the 1972 Munich Olympics. The show is complemented by photographs documenting the construction of the Olympic Park and thus also outlining the creative departure in architecture. For more information on the exhibition, visit here.

We are especially pleased that Dr. Tobias Hoffmann, the director of the Broehan Museum and curator of the exhibition, will participate as a panelist in our event "wir haben brot, wir haben spiele" (we have bread, we have games) at the Akademie der Künste on the evening of August 26. You can register for this here.

UX Design Awards Talent Track: Award Winners
In her presentation Mengxue Zhou walks us through her award winning project “Potential Newsfeed”.

Details

“Potential Newsfeed” explores how invisible algorithms on social media affect our consciousness about information consumption. Through speculative design, three concepts showcase different dimensions of transparency and control how we can intervene with the digital system. The focus lies in using design artifacts and storytelling to provoke discussion on how the public, society, technology, and market could potentially engage in adjusting the direction towards a future platform.

UXDA Jury member Peter Post about the project:

“Potential Newsfeed” is a well-executed piece of speculative design, addressing the issues of trust and mental health on Facebook. It shows the potential of a power shift from the platform to people. But it also challenges users: would we be willing to pay for more control? Would it be OK if only the affluent could afford to block targeting? Do we really want to know how our friends, their interests and attitudes influence our news feed?

UX Design Awards - Deep Dive: Award Winners | Siemens Healthineers
In their presentation Alexandra Zahn and Anna Weidner walk us through their award-winning project „Pediatric Radiology Experience".

Details

Gerda the Brave Giraffe is a holistic approach to pediatric radiology preparation that encourages children to enter an examination positively. They are accompanied throughout their Patient Journey and can actively participate in the preparation. Starting with the referring physician until after the exam, different materials help to reduce anxiety and stress of patients, parents and clinical staff and to decrease the number of sedations.

UXDA Jury member Markus Turber about the project:

»The character “Gerda the Brave Giraffe” accompanies children who need an MRI scan throughout a well-designed experience journey. The story helps kids become knowledgeable through print and audio media. This service is a game changer, as it shifts the status from affected patients to engaged children. As fear and powerlessness turn into curiosity and expertise, trust and patience towards the medical procedure grows, reducing the need to apply sedatives. Pediatric Radiology is a charming project!«

UX Design Awards - Talent Track: Award Winners | Milan Bergheim
In his presentation New Talent Gold Award Winner Milan Bergheim walks us through his award winning project “re:wet/peat:lab — peatland monitoring made easy”.

Details

Peat:lab is a measuring device that greatly simplifies comprehensive peatland monitoring and thus aims to accelerate the rewetting of peatlands. This can save 7% of German CO2 emissions. The peat:lab quickly builds a digital twin of the peatlands, which serves as a planning basis, certificate and biomass marketplace and knowledge transfer. Terrain heights, water levels, peat thickness and vegetation composition via AI are recorded.

UXDA Jury member Werner Spicka about the project:

“With this award the jury recognizes the considerable contribution that this concept can make by enabling farmers to actively participate in positive climate change through technical, educational and financial means. Based on an iterative development process that included all relevant stakeholders this concept provides one platform for many formerly separated workflows of independent teams. re:wet/peat:lab is a great example of how technology and services can empower people through a holistic approach that also simplifies access to vital funding information.”

UX Design Awards Deep Dive: Award Winners | Valtech/BMG
UX Design Consultant Christian Kilian and Creative Director Experience Design Stefan Sacherer will walk us through their award-winning project „BMG Production Music Web Application“ - a music library for film makers with over 300,000 tracks.

Details



BMG Production Music Web Application won the "UX Design Award | Product" 2022. BMG offers filmmakers the opportunity to choose music for their projects from over 300,000 tracks. Until now, the search took place on several historically grown platforms for different licensing regions. The new Digital Experience Platform turns all this into a holistic digital experience focusing on usability, search optimization and design. Using the latest headless technology, the platform enables the integration of external services such as an AI-supported "Similar Tracks Search".

UXDA Jury member Ole Heydekamp on the project
“One of the key features of the BMG Music App is an AI supported “Similar Tracks Search” which allows users to select tracks from the catalog, YouTube, Spotify or MP3 files. This intelligent search function using various filters, categories and keywords empowers users to let their creativity run wild, and quickly find the best music match in the catalog library. The jury was particularly impressed by the solution’s coherent focus on the needs of a very specific target group. By applying agile development with continuous user testing and iterations, the design team created a service that is very user-friendly and supports task completion in a very efficient way.”

UX Design Awards Talent Track: Award Winners | Maximilian Seeger
In his presentation New Talent Award Winner Maximilian Seeger walks us through his project “Jewels of the Sea”.

Details

We have diatoms to thank for every fourth breath we take. After all, these microscopic single-celled photosynthetic organisms produce about a quarter of the world's oxygen. Yet, although diatoms are essential for the carbon cycle, they are only known to a small circle of people. This installation makes it possible to interact with digitally generated diatom models and examine the living microcosm surrounding us in real-time.

UXDA Jury member Oliver Gerstheimer about the project:

"JEWELS presents an ingenious interaction and experience on several levels: it enlarges small yet essential elements of life, making them understandable for laymen and scientists alike. Its hybrid and interactive setup brings diatoms – a species largely unknown to humans – to life in an impressive way, presenting their unique aesthetics and being in a didactic and playful way. The microcosm of diatoms is processed in real time and transmitted as a live microscopic image, creating a fascinating and tangible user a 3D experience."
