CDCL – Iconstyle

Orientation system for construction sites

The CDCL, founded in 1979 from a merger of 3 construction companies, is a Luxembourgish building company employing 550 people today. We were tasked with developing a signage system for construction sites to facilitate staff orientation. The isometric 3D-effect of the iconography was matched to the overall construction design. Based on these icons, indoor and outdoor signs were created containing directives, rules and signposts, simplifying orientation at construction sites.

The imagery, based on outlines with the same line thickness, delivers clear and immediately understandable information, overcoming possible language barriers.

Design of the national PISA study report 2015

We designed a summary report and a new website displaying the results of the PISA study in Luxembourg in 2015. We used a data visualisation process to compare results to previous years and other countries. The website also serves as a platform for further information on the PISA study and the luxemburgish school system.

Grande/Groß Region

A cross-border campaign about the Greater Region

Common culture binds beyond national borders. Five regions in four countries, often referred to as the Greater Region, deepen and simplify cross-border cooperation. These different regions grew together successfully despite previous tensions, divisions and wars. As a result, creating a common visual identify seemed appropriate.

The Luxembourg government took over the presidency for the summit of executives on 1st January 2017. Due to this event, the government decided to publish a magazine presenting the Greater Region, its sub-regions, its history, its commonalities and the differences. HUM designed a magazine based on infographics and illustrations with a catchy corporate design to create a common identity. Additionally, the corporate identity was used when creating an exhibition on the Greater Region.

100 Wierder Lëtzebuergesch

The 100 Wierder Lëtzebuergesch tool was created for Min. of Integration to enable the refugees to have contact with the Luxembourgish local population and make it more easy to integrate the educational system in Luxembourg.

The approach is:
