We asked ourselves how we could visualize and symbolize communication — and decided to develop punctuation to serve as the main design elements. Adding a colon transformed the name of the company into a graphic element. The individual communication media, including press folders, corporate brochures and publications, feature stylized quotation marks. They visualize the content generated and distributed to solve communication issues.
