Colouring Archaeology

Our colleagues from “Archäologische Illustrationen” in Berlin are starting a campaign to fund an archaeological colouring book. Although this is not a first, it seems that this is the first colouring book focused on high-quality motifs. We spoke with Anja, Conni, Martin and Viki to learn more about their project and what to expect.

Learn about Archaeology

One of our older projects, the illustration that explains an archaeological trench (see above), has found another use. Last Friday, Birge Tezner from audio Konzept was using our illustration in a reading for children, that was held in the book store BuchSegler in Berlin. She was promoting her new audio book “Fred im Reich der […]

Explaining the IT structure of the German Archaeological Institute

For the second issue of the magazine “Archäologie Weltweit”, that is published by the German Archaeological Insitute (DAI), we were commissioned to develop an informative graphic that shows the complex network of different projects of the DAI. The goal was to express the different layers of information that are managed by the DAI and in […]

News from the ongoing Uruk exhibition

Today, I was in the neighbourhood of the Pergamonmuseum and used that to do a check-up on the animations. Everything was working fine of course. While I was going through the exhibition, I was rather watching the people enjoying, than the exhibition itself. Of course, I have visited several times and had therefore eyes for […]

We got published in the “Antike Welt”

In this issue of the “Antike Welt” (3/2013) are a couple of pictures from our Uruk visualisations and we even made it onto the cover! Well, I know it is not People Magazine, but we are nonetheless very proud. You’ll see visualisations of the Ur III Period, the Late Uruk Period and the Seleucid Period. […]

Send greetings from Uruk!

It is basically the same motif as you can see in our project description of the Seleucid Period in Uruk. There are only 1.000 cards, so be […]
