NEXT Berlin

Corporate Design

We created the visual identity for the 2013 iteration of NEXT Berlin. Derived from an experimental studio setup, it deals with questions of presence, absence, the void and the unknown. We applied the identity to the conference venue (CCH Berlin) in the form of large-format installations. It was also used for the full range of printed matter.


For the conference titles, laboratory experiments were continued. Together with filmmaker Cristian Straub, we built several physical sets that were used to create a progressive, yet haunted atmosphere that extended the conference's central themes.
