ing-grootING – Corporate

Formation of a problem: When ING was forced to hive off large parts of its conglomeration, the bank researched a way to enlighten all those concerned. A sharp illustration was needed of the present, but also of the desired situation. Above all the ING needed a roadmap connecting the present with the future. The document needed to be signed by all directors of the East-European and Asiatic branches and thus forming a communal bond. The document was to be used within the internal communication of all branches to guarantee a clear future purpose.

The solution: Together with ING communication- authorities, we developed the above map, which portrays the transformation, the new movement and the exchange market, in an uncomplicated and inspiring way. On the left, the map is designed with the old situation, in the middle the progress of the exchange market. On the right one will find the new country and the future.

 dt-grootDeutsche Telekom – Corporate

Deutsche Telekom struggled with the problem of how a gigantic reorganization, which would affect eighty thousand employees, would be able to communicate with all concerned.

The whole structure of the company, which was built up during the time of analogue telephony, changed tack.

Deutsche Telekom was looking for an easy-readable, compact and clear instrument for the very best communication to sort out the chaotic structure of the past situation and open up lines, which would lead to the future.

The solution: Inspired by our former task performed for Deutsche Telekom, we have now designed this project. In consultation with Deutsche Telekom we created the above shown map. This map shows the old situation clearly on the left side. On the right side, one will find the new situation, whilst the path that leads there, is indicated. The map shows how the organization has changed and which chances and challenges were to be met during the reorganization.
