Ladies and gentlemen, dear customers, due to the increasing threat of the coronavirus, which is spreading inexorably worldwide, unfortunately everyone is affected by restrictions in everyday life. For us, this means that with immediate effect, we will only be able to keep appointments and meetings by digital means. In addition, the closure of schools, kindergartens and day care centres, with the increased risk for grandparents who normally fill in for child care, means that normal operations can no longer be guaranteed.

As has become a tradition, our agency is taking a small time-out from shortly before Christmas until the second week of next year, in order to catch our breath and gain new energy for the new business year. Our office will therefore be closed from 20 December up to and including 8 January. In urgent cases we will as always be reachable by e-mail, with accordingly extended reaction times. We wish our customers and partners a pleasant pre-Christmas period and a stress-free end of year.
For 48DESIGN this project was an extraordinary and welcome diversion from everyday life as a digital agency with a focus on the web. It wasn't about a mere virtual 3D model to be used in the form of 3D renderings, but a real miniature model for an exhibition in a pop-up store. On behalf of public utility company Stadtwerke Karlsruhe, we took over the 3D scanning, modelling, handling of the 3D printing process and then the detailed varnishing. Numerous pictures from the scan to the finished 3D model can be seen on the project page. […]
Sometimes it's time to let go of the past and reinvent yourself completely. With an outdated website, a relaunch of our company's own website was indispensable. This time, however, we did not only want to renew the website, but also revise the entire appearance of the Internet Agency. While the development of strategies for other companies is our daily bread, the development of a new corporate design for your own company is a much more difficult undertaking! We started with our logo, which hadn't been touched since its soft relaunch in 2014 but was now created from-scratch. […]
There are indeed more common terms than "Agency for New Media". For example, we could have called ourselves advertising agency or internet agency. Why did we choose "Agency for New Media Karlsruhe"? At the time 48DESIGN was founded, we stumbled upon statistics saying that one of the most hated professions in Germany was that of advertising professionals, especially "employees of an advertising agency". According to current research, advertising agencies are still appearing in 2019 in various statistics on the prestige of professions. […]
You've surely heard of it by now: two years ago, the European Union established a so-called "General Data Protection Regulation" (GDPR; in German: Datenschutz-Grundverordnung, DSGVO), which comes into effect on 25 May 2018. In general, it's supposed to better protect personal data. While the intentions are of good nature, it has an enormous effect on all website owners, all of whom will have to take action to comply with the new regulations. 48DESIGN has now updated its own websites and is therefore ready for this deadline.

The mills of the authorities grind slowly ... but now the change is official: the "Unternehmergesellschaft" (UG) has received an upgrade and 48DESIGN is now a "Gesellschaft mit beschränkter Haftung" (GmbH). At last, postmen are no longer searching for the doorbell of the basement (UG means "Untergeschoss" in German as well which translates to basement...), and we have a little bit more space on our printed products. We think that it's very appropriate that this change happened in the tenth year of our company history. […]
Finally! After six years in the city centre of Karlsruhe, we decided to move to the countryside. After all, what good are big office spaces in the city when creative work is hardly possible due to construction sites, congested roads and the omnipresent noise? But do not worry: many of our customers have never seen us live anyway - some do not even know our voices - because customer contact is mostly digital with us! Thus, nothing changes for you. […]
This year we were able to live up to last year's success - to the point that we neglected our own website a bit. Several projects are waiting to be entered into our portfolio - and unfortunately, we're not allowed to use all of our projects as a reference. With all that work, we actually managed to not post a single news item this year. Shame on us! So, now indeed follows the announcement for the 2017 winter break. Between December 25, 2017 and January 5, 2018 we'll not be available by phone and only to a limited extent by email. […]
