Make values visible

The right design and an emotionalising visual vocabulary turn key topics of the Ernsting`s family’s sustainability report into an illustrative experience.

On the factual basis of a CSR report, our art directors and graphic designers focus in their DESIGN CONCEPT on methods of visual storytelling that get to grips with content such as economy and responsibility, and at the same time also translate the CSR projects into comprehensible visual statements. Because the typography, format and phrasing also follow a fact-based, emotionally accessible and transparent goal direction, the ecology topic holistically undergoes an organic and fluid design, with a framework-setting effect – for the Ernsting’s family’s individuality characterised by commitment and responsibility.
