Red Dot: Agency of the Year 2009


Since 1984, the Munich-based agency KMS Team has been creating strong brand presences for high-profile clients from a variety of different business fields. The design office was founded by Knut Maierhofer. It employs brand experts in the disciplines of Strategy, Branding, Communication and Digital. By 2009, KMS Team had won more than 50 distinctions in the Red Dot Design Award for its successful creative achievements in the design of corporate and brand identities. Its ground-breaking concepts included the spectacular trade fair stand for O2 Germany at the CeBIT with a specially designed, illuminated “sky”. For Audi, KMS TEAM created a museum based on the fundamental idea of the rings on a tree in order to symbolise growth and change. The agency’s many years of success were rewarded in 2009 on its 25th anniversary with the title of honour “Red Dot: Agency of the Year”. 

“We do not just design – we analyse, design and activate.”

– Knut Maierhofer, Founder of the KMS Team
