Selection procedure for a digital project

In a 2.5-month process, the IDZ supported the strategy and innovation department of the WDR in finding suitable agency partners for an extensive digital project. As a neutral design center, the IDZ carried out a three-stage selection process - from project briefing and market research, communication and pre-selection, re-briefing, final selection and presentation preparation, to the supervision and moderation of individual agency presentations at the client's premises.

Duration: 2.5 months
Scope of services: conception, consulting, implementation: three-stage selection procedure for digital agencies
Client: NDR / ARD-aktuell (main German news channel)

"Through the IDZ, ARD-aktuell has been able to contact five outstanding design agencies as quickly as possible. The IDZ organized everything - from the first briefing to the structured bundling of all enquiries to the presentation of the agencies to the project team of the Tagesschau in Hamburg. IDZ's knowledge of the industry was invaluable in this ambitious process".
