Verinion Cooperation with Click-a-Tree to plant trees around the world

Our contribution...

… for the good of the planet:

Verinion has been using pure green electricity since 2016, locally from Hamburg Energie. We also work with Click-a-Tree to plant trees around the world (400 trees for 2021). Furthermore, we use FSC-certified printer paper from sustainable forestry (unfortunately, we are not completely paperless yet) and feed our coffee machine with organic Fairtrade beans. We use organic tabs in the dishwasher, the dish towels are woven by a workshop for the blind in Hamburg and – wherever possible – we buy local products, take the train instead of the plane …

To be honest, we don’t always succeed, but we are aware of our responsibility and work on it.

Who is who?

We are often briefed to adopt an “iconic” approach to design and wondered how this approach would influence a self-portrait.
Can you guess who is Jörg, Rüdiger and Nils?

DESING/DINGS/TAG von desingxport

As one of the initiators, Verinion hosted the event series DESIGN/DINGS/TAG for desingxport in December 2018.

Esther Stühmer, Julia Kaiser, René Fehrmann and Kim Bobsin presented and discussed their „Design thing” before approximately 50 guests. A big thank you to you all!

Our jewel

This old photograph dating back to 1899 shows our office building. Although it was built long before the modern Hamburg HafenCity, it still stands unchanged. Like many iconic brands we have worked on, our old building has a real story to tell.

What’s in a brief?

One of favourite pro bono activities is for the marketing faculty of a Swiss university. To learn the art of briefing, students develop creative packaging briefs for imaginary product innovations…and are amazed at the outcomes when we design against their briefs.

55 cm²

A small space that’s big on detail – Jörg is passionate about playing card design and has designed cards for some of Germany’s best magicians. This design was created for Pit Hartling, a globally recognised card conjurer.

Jörg came up with this design for the “master of cards”, Jan Logemann.

Logos for a good cause

(RED) is a British organisation committed to the fight against AIDS. Individuals or companies wishing to have a logo in the (RED) look receive a logo free of charge from participating designers who would then donate the fee they considered appropriate to (RED). A wonderful, creative project for a good cause. We didn’t have to think twice about joining!

Wet feet

The climate change expresses itself in Hamburg with a flood, flashing blue lights and a compulsory evacuation every four to five years…

…if we don’t shut down our computers quickly enough, wet feet are unavoidable (Nils on his way home).
