Toyota Lecture Series: Tanja Diezmann & Tobias Gremmier

Digital information is dynamic — so its design should be dynamic as well. Today, many brands and information resources are already represented by dynamic media channels like the Word Wide Web, rather than by static media like print. This requires a visual communication, which is no longer adapted from print. While most Internet sites still look like newspaper design, more and more influences from TV-design are spilling over. Tanja Diezmann and Tobias Gremmier will present dynamic designs for various applications. From mobile phone interfaces, TV and Web design, LED-billboards and media events.
