In life today, we encounter graphic surfaces in a wide range of everyday situations. These include newspapers, books and written texts, all sorts of screens and illuminated signs, large-format wall posters and graffiti. In exhibitions, the graphic elements are an integral part of what a space or room communicates. Images and colours aim at an intuitive understanding and emotional effect, texts lend the information structure, infographics and pictograms fusion the statements contained within text and image, while guidance systems help orientation. We can no longer imagine exhibitions and public spaces without graphics. Graphic design often forays wide into the fields of typography and printing technology, colour and image communication, drawing and illustration, right up to digital surfaces. Graphic design wends its way in our office into all application contexts and serves at all times to render information, objects and rooms comprehensible and coherent.
