Peak15 will participate in the Swiss Design Network Conference »Counterparts: Exploring Design Beyond the Human« in October 2022, with the research & design project SOLIDAGO.
POLYCANVAS is a data-driven poster framework, which we adapted for the Creative Informatics Innovation Showcase 2021. The poster displays and arranges content by chance on the canvas–with each content loop being triggered by live data input (Github’s API). For the Showcase we rewrote the framework to enable audio components for each element and add a flexible colour scheme for the client. Due to the sounds being selected by chance out of a library, unique soundscapes are created each time with endless possibility for extension.
The original framework was conceived by Sigrid Schmeisser and based on the brand narrative for Creative Informatics. Apart from being a tool to display content, Schmeisser was curious to investigate what it means to co-design with an algorithm.

TU Delft commissioned Peak15 studio to work with them on the ambitious EU-funded International Training Network »DCODE«. It offers 15 PhD opportunities across Europe in 5 countries. DCODE Network consists of 7 core academic partners and Philips Design as well as 6 associated industry partners, which will work across sectors and disciplines to tackle the digital transformation of society and the role of design.
Peak15 worked with curator Jane Macdonald (DesignInformatics, ECA), on the exhibition design for »Critical Digital Economies« at FutureLab in Shanghai for which projects from DesignInformatics researchers were selected. The exhibition featured 30 Universities and ran from December 5–13th 2021, with 10.000 visitors attending.
It was a real pleasure to create the conference identity, landing page design and graphic animations for the first Creative Informatics Showcase conference hosted via Zoom and with discussions on Mighty Networks.
We collaborated with Kat Duglosz and Paolo Drusi from Video Production Edinburgh. The project was produced, coordinated and managed by Jessica Armstrong.

Pleased to announce that the Housing 2040 Travelling Exhibition is exhibited in the RSA annual showcase. Peak15 designed the identity for it and collaborated with Collective Architecture, ESALA on the exhibition concept. RSA shows the films made by Chris Leslie as part of the tour, which became part of each location stop.
