Bonjour Paris – Autonomy Mobility World Expo 2024

Two successful days at Autonomy in Paris with MOIA have come to an end and we are delighted to hear from our client: “Working closely with BR Studio for a booth conception at the AMWE in Paris has truely enhanced our brand's presence at the trade show. Their creative strategies not only elevated our booth to a next-level brand touchpoint but also delivered a remarkable brand experience. Every element was thoughtfully crafted to resonate with our audience. Our partnership has played a key role in shaping our brand's journey, and we're very thankful for achieving this amazing effort.”

The design idea of the exhibition stand captures the essence of an urban reality.

New business: Sonia Health from San Francisco

We are delighted to welcome Sonia as a new customer at BR*Studio. The San Francisco-based AI start-up is funded by the renowned Y-Combinator, which has helped unicorns like Airbnb, Twitch and Coinbase grow exponentially.
Sonia is a fully AI-powered cognitive behavioural therapist that delivers text and voice-based therapy sessions via an iOS app. "We make mental health care accessible to anyone, anywhere, anytime," is the purpose of the start-up's three founders, Chris, Dustin and Lukas, who met while studying at ETH Zurich and took the leap to MIT in Cambridge to deepen their research in the field of artificial intelligence.
The first results of our design sprints are already visible in the form of a new logo, new graphic language and social media templates. "It's incredibly exciting to accompany this ambitious and dynamic start-up on its journey and to keep working iteratively on the needs of the app and communication," explains Managing Director Tim Rotermund.

BR*Studio starts the 4-day work week, three months on a trial basis

From January 2024, we will be introducing a 4-day week for three months on a trial basis.
We believe that a shorter working week can not only lead to more creativity, but will also have a positive impact on our team spirit and work motivation. As a team, we want to create more space for creative development and a committed, modern and future-oriented working environment in which the personal development of each individual is just as important as the successful realization of our projects.
We are looking forward to the exciting journey we will embark on together as a team.

Proud to be united:
 Beiersdorf Campus Opening

The new Beiersdorf Campus unites employees from two locations into one - in the heart of Hamburg, where it all began over 140 years ago. To celebrate and showcase the big two-day campus opening, we developed a design system based on the iconic floor plans of the five Beiersdorf buildings C.ONNECT, A.CTION, R.OOTS, E.MPOWER, and X.PLORE. The flexibly adaptable design system was used throughout the campus. From save-the-date invitations to the Campus Opening app to large-scale window wraps, from nametags to keynote presentations. "The Campus Opening design was seen literally everywhere. An incredibly strong and consistent overall impression and therefore also a huge success for Beiersdorf," Marie Boden (project manager for the Beiersdorf Campus) was thrilled with the event.

National brand refresh for Panattoni

For Panattoni Germany, Europe's largest project developer of logistics real estate, we introduced the existing corporate design in German-speaking countries. To do this, we further developed the international brand strategy and brand design and adapted them to local conditions in applications such as trade show booths, ad campaigns and construction fences. We translated the values that we developed collaboratively as part of the strategy into meaningful headlines that we staged for a national image campaign. The focus was always on the claim "International vision, local focus".

An urban jungle for MOIA at the ITS World Congress

For the ridesharing service MOIA, we developed a 3D branding that transfers the brand's existing brand design into the real world. In collaboration with Studio Huber, the brand was thus brought to life for the first time in a holistic spatial experience. The occasion for the staging was the trade fair stand for the ITS World Congress in Hamburg, the world's largest event on the subject of smart mobility and the digitalization of traffic and transport.

The urban jungle takes over the street: Under the concept idea "Urban Jungle" we combined the form and material language of outdoor elements (street furniture) with contemporary design elements. Because ridesharing reduces traffic, the street takes a back seat - and creates space for a new togetherness.

The central element of the booth was an interactive exhibit created in collaboration with Christian Hergarten. It enabled MOIA's mobility experts to navigate through extensive simulation data on site, present it to an interested audience - and thus start a dialog about the future of ridesharing.

We’re always on the lookout for new joint projects. Tell us about yours.
