Red Bull Soapbox Racer

Our team created the flash-game Red Bull Soapbox Racer to accompany the real Red Bull Soapbox event. Designing your own soapbox racers and race tracks you can compete with your friends online.
				The game won several international awards. I designed the various themes, including landscapes, 3D obstacles, street surfaces and sample cars. All graphics have a deliberate do it yourself handmade feeling. This video was made to give a quick introduction into the game. I was in charge of the entire production, including storyboard, capturing, animation and video editing. Soapbox textures are mapped on 3D planes in Flash/ Papervision. I built many 3D objects in Blender that were imported to Flash/Papervision. Some of the objects are 2D integrated in 3D space. 3D detail. More 3D and 2D objects. The themes reflect the current location of the Red Bull Soapbox event, in this case the Alps. The City of Johannesburg. Historic Jerusalem. The sun setting over Istanbul. To promote the game I designed several online banners that include very short video sequences. The banners were adapted to different formats.

Falling Walls Conference

Falling Walls, the Berlin conference on future breakthroughs in science and society took place on November 9th 2009, the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall. During the conference about 35 trailers introduce the speakers. The layout of the conference program is square. Red and concrete-grey reflect the corporate identity of the Einstein Foundation and this particular event. The program pages are flapped to symbolise the wall falling. Examples of schedule and speaker page. Question sheet to be used for the later discussion. All the handouts were put in a bag made from recycled material. Name batch, bag, invitations, magazine and banner adverts were also part of the project.

How to survive Xmas

Frontline Shop sells young fashion online.
        	We created the concept for their christmas/ new year online campaign. It was later adapted to print aditionally. The idea we came up with was an ironic xmas survival kit inspired by military emergency food rations. We created several illustrations on how to survive xmas. These illustrations were later integrated into several launch phases. Each area of the Frontline Shop received an xmas branding by creating different logo types. Examples of different pages, each made to look like an opened survival kit revealing its contents. Advent calendar screen. Frontline's graphic designer used our material for their catalogue. Trying a different approach to usual christmas campaigns, How to survive Xmas brought a lot of attention and business to the shop.

Red Bull Mediamix

Red Bull asked us to create Mediamix, a multimedia platform for video, photo and audio content recorded at different Red Bull events. Video view. Enlarged video view. Photo slideshow. There were several user options for the media content. Other Red Bull content was strongly linked to the Mediamix platform.
        Media files could be integrated into articles and event microsites. Additionaly we created a very easy-to-use application to create video clips from bookmarked media.

Good Film Corporate Design

Good Film commissioned me to develop their corporate identity. They wanted a simple, elegant image with an emotional touch.
        Business cards and DVD design. I decided on a very classic logo with a modern twist. Creating simple gradients of different colors, reminiscent of sunset and dawn, for a film production company dealing with long shooting schedules this seemed the way to go. The showreel section of the website works smoothly with seemless transitions. While watching a video the background is shaded and interface elements fade out.
        That way the website can be used perfectly for presentations.

Pet Sematary

The online campaign against fur farming was created for the animal rights organization NOAH. The homepage shows an abstract, but still scary semetary illuminated by few candles. After selecting one of the grid squares crosses appear reminding of an anonymous military cemetery. Some graviards reveal a short personal message of the user that lit a candle. You can go, light your own candle and write your obit. More and more users adopted a dead fur-bearing animal. The Pet Sematary (remember the song?) became a memorial and a sign of hope.

Freestyler Microsite

This Flash microsite features three Red Bull freestyle athletes. Information and media are presented in a young and playful way. I decided on an informal down and dirty style, relating to the rough nature of the sport itself. Supported by clickable objects and videos, the user can discover stories and get further information from experts. Enlarged video player.

Snowflake Games

For christmas 2003 I created a world of characters and objects that were used in online games and greeting cards. My former company Fork Unstable Media used this world for commercial and self-promotional purposes. The Snowflake world also appeared online as an e-card builder. The users could scale and rotate the objects, change the landscape and enter messages. Fork introduced this fun tool to their clients and friends. The e-card builder was so popular that NIVEA bought the tool for the year after. This is the official Snowflake game first published for NIVEA Germany. Gender selection and rules. The aim of the game is to catch as many snowflakes and NIVEA products as possible. To get on the highscore the user has to register. The highscore. After the local success Snowflake was internationalized for NIVEA.com and is still available at wintertime. Rules of the game. Cought products leading to further information and the option to win them. In the meanwhile Snowflake has also evolved in an iPhone app. My original graphics were only slightly adapted.
