August 2019, Sawade

Our “chocolate customer” Sawade (we actually say client) has already won ten medals and a Special Award this year. Sawade gained a place in the worldwide final in the International Chocolate Award competition for chocolates from Germany, Austria and Switzerland with the gold award for “Walnut on Brandy Marzipan” and the variety also received the Special Award. Sawade also won over the British Academy of Chocolate and its jury of 100 chocolate experts against enormously strong competition. Internationally selected top varieties are awarded prizes. There were 850 submissions (!) from 35 countries and seven times silver for Sawade: among others for the 110 g “Berliner Fernsehturm” (Berlin TV tower) box, the 220 g “Mistelzweig” (Mistletoe) box and the 40 g “Berliner Bär” (Berlin bear). The experts of both competitions agreed on the “Queen Luise” praline: It was crowned silver twice.

July 2019, Freunde der Preußischen Schlösser und Gärten

To preserve cultural heritage and connect it to today’s beneficiaries: The Freunde der Preußischen Schlösser und Gärten association (Friends of Prussian Palaces and Gardens), founded almost 40 years ago, is committed to saving a painting from the threat of imminent sale. Stan Hema is preparing the digital stage for the commitment of today’s roughly 1,500 members. We are implementing functions that promote the association’s work. The content can be conveniently configured; the direct donation function and the (also financially) transparent documentation of the funded projects are essential for the public.

July 2019, Modulor

“Through your workshops you have already made the development of the brand part of the implementation process. So we can work with it much more effectively ourselves and that is crucial.” Quote by Christof Struhk. He supplies Germany’s creative scene from Berlin with his legendary Modulor architecture and art supplies store. We developed the brand and asked Christof what his experience of the process was.

Christof Struhk provides his answers here in an interview.
