Elastique. in an interview with Red Dot

How would you define good communication design?
It touches people, is fun and, ideally, enables one to understand the world a bit better than before.

To what extent do you think new technologies are changing design?
Technologies can be integrated in the design process in a more playful way – and one’s own ideas matter more than ever.

How do you remain creative and continue to come up with innovative solutions?
Quite the reverse. We continually and deliberately get ourselves into challenging situations; that way, one becomes inventive.

What does a communication designer need to be successful?
Enjoying your work, staying power, the will to keep changing, trusting your gut feeling and, not least, a little serendipity.

Elastique. received five awards at the Red Dot Award: Brands & Communication Design 2021. The agency received four Red Dots and one Red Dot: Best of the Best for its work on the “NEXTGen 2020” live event for vehicle manufacturer BMW.
