»Since 1997, we have been planning and designing the yearbooks of University of Bremen.«
For 18 years, the yearbooks have been providing information on topics and events that have shaped the previous year. Originally intended as a medium for graduates, the yearbook has long since become an integral part of University of Bremen’s communication. The further development of design and concept has also contributed to this. Meanwhile, the publication of the yearbook has given rise to an official reception that the university uses to thank all friends and supporters. A great project, a great editorial university team – we are looking forward to the future cooperation.
Every year, we face the challenge of visually interpreting and shaping the guiding theme. A particularly beautiful and creative task. Here are our creative responses to: »Urgent Issues of our Time«, »Research-based learning«, »Internationality«, and »Half-time in excellence«.
Good projects have good supporters. The university’s yearbook would not be what it is without sponsors and partners. Many institutions and companies document their commitment to the university and the important role they play in the Bremen educational landscape.
The university yearbook 2015 was presented as part of the »Jahrbuchempfang«(Yearbook reception) at Bremen Fraunhofer IFAM. The guiding theme is »cooperation«. Cooperation is an elementary component for University of Bremen’s success. It is a large network of people and institutions that work together. We have asked people who are closely connected with the university to make the »essence of a cooperation« visible together, including the head of Airbus Bremen Dr. André Walter, team neusta directors Carsten Meyer-Heder and Dirk Schwampe, political scientist Frank Nullmeier and engineer Lucio Colombo Ciacchi as well as historian Dr. Eva Schöck-Quinteros and actor Peter Lüchinger. As diverse as the people and the nature of the dialogues were, everyone agreed: trust, transparency, and sustainability are basic prerequisites for a successful cooperation. In short: You are only going to make it as a team. The design tools: chalk, board, and dialogue. The place: GfG’s iD-Werkstatt (iD workshop). The result: a cooperative yearbook.
