    In addition to the development of responsive websites that work on mobile, we also set up Progressive Web Apps (PWA): Progressive web apps are increasingly replacing proprietary applications. This reduces the expenses of the development of iOS and Android applications. However, we can also develop native applications for iOS and/or Android as per your requirements.

Trade fair InnoTrans

The central touchpoint of the trade fair appearance

Experiencing and presenting the fascinating and complex application to the customers is the highlight of the booth visit. Several input terminals and a large central screen show the results of different user scenarios and inputs.

From the introduction directly to the live demonstration

Captivating exhibition & booth design

Various input devices

The application is used throughout Europe, is user-friendly on various devices and reduces the entry barriers. Whether Windows, OSX or iOS - there is a familiar working environment for everyone.


Part of the order was the provision of hardware and its integration.



International Career Market

Intuitive map application

The previous stringing together of jobs is no longer necessary. Behind every pin there is at least one offer. The map intuitively shows the worldwide job distribution and the internationality of the company.

Accurate and relevant search results

Filter by desired features - and intuitively the map shows the nearest opportunities. Select and save your search criteria to collect and apply for new opportunities
If there are no matching jobs available, users will be informed via notifications as soon as suitable offers become available.


The taking of Berlin


The final phase of the Second World War for Berlin was chaotic and dramatic. With the help of this touchscreen application, right next to the map of Berlin on Hitler's desk, visitors at the museum can find out which districts were taken in which order and how contemporary witnesses experienced this.

Chronology of the taking

A slider animates the progress of the front line

Contemporary witness

Some reports of the contemporary witnesses are horrifying and dramatic.

A central information platform for logistics companies

International freight traffic is clustered into different modalities. Can goods be transferred from road to rail and back from rail to road, and which partner companies make this possible throughout Europe? This map application based on Open Street Map shows results based on hundreds of European companies' availability. The portal also contributes to CO2 reduction. The project included in-depth discussions with the Federal Ministry of Transport and logistics representatives from rail and road.

Where can goods be loaded onto rail?

Various maps show the European rail infrastructure. A key component of the map application is the insight into combined transport of rail and road. This central and bundled information was not available anywhere before.


As there can be numerous possible connections, the dynamically generated overview-graphic can be dragged as required, displaying the different terminal locations and available connections.


Timetables provide information about departure and arrival times, as well as possible alternatives, terminal contact details, operators and availability of capacities.

Alignment of rail and road

It became clear very early on in the development process, that there is a strong interest for integration of rail and road transportation. The picture shows various companies that are offering first and last mile transport.


2D animation + claim


At trade fairs it can be challenging to 100% predict the information displayed by next-door competition booths. Developing an attention-grabbing key visual was necessary to stand out. The eye-catching animation generated necessary attention and attracted many customers to the booth.

The tracks as a metaphor.


Simple graphics illustrate correlations

Finally: The logo and the integrated slogan make a statement.

Corporate Design Development

VERMDOK offers surveying for construction and urban development projects, as well as industrial surveying. HORNNISSEN developed the corporate design for VERMDOK’s print and digital presence. The image brochures showcase the company’s divisions and international presence in Europe and Australia. The key visual is the warning colour frequently found in the surveying sector. The large-scale use of this colour in all important communication media has resulted in high brand recognition.

Mobile service application

Key elements are the simple overall availability of contact options and services.

Issue-communications infrastructure

Issues in the infrastructure (e.g. bridges, signalling systems, barriers) can be easily reported by B2B users on the move with geo-referencing, photos and descriptions. The report is immediately forwarded to issuetraking.


General information, contact details and appointments are also available on the app.



3D animation for trade fairs

Thanks to the medium-sized company’s highly sophisticated surveying instruments the development of various formats can be expedited. The animation showcases the cooperation and the surveying process in an entertaining and comprehensive way. The project scope also included a custom audio composition.

Institute for Crystal Growth (Leibniz)

Teaser animation

Visualising what scientific institutions do in comprehensible way to the general public, is central to social acceptance, education and awareness. The animation shows components of the typical challenges in the development and production of crystals, with integration of essential elements of the corporate design in a vivid way.

The Cloud

The challenge in this project was not the modelling, but the mathematical description of the "chaotic" movement of atoms.


The isolated representation of different phases of the crystallisation process.


The animation shows several discontinuities in the crystallisation process and how they are resolved.

Exhibition website

The Museum Berlin-Karlshorst is a memorial site of the Federal Republic of Germany. At the site of the official surrender of the “Wehrmacht” army, exhibitions commemorate the Second World War and the period thereafter. Giving these themes an appropriate setting was a bit of a challenge. How modern can one make a place like that without it being interpreted as inappropriately playful? Which colours can be used? The result is a look and feel that lives up to the museum's claim to be an institution that connects people.

The representation of the historical site

The surrender of the Wehrmacht took place in the rooms of the museum.

Digital exhibition

Videos, texts, photos and virtual tours of various exhibitions.


Virtual tour

The need for a virtual tour of the museum arose due to the restrictions imposed by the covid-19 pandemic.

VERMDOK exhibition stand

VERMDOK operates internationally and, as a medium-sized company, has to stand out visually from larger corporations at the trade fair. Through the large-scale use of CD colour, the stand is visible from afar. The booth offers a live demonstration of how the laser measurement process for rail vehicle construction is performed. The 3D animation, the screens showing real-time measurement data and open set-up of the booth also allow the walking-by spectators to participate.

3D model

Custom 3D models of the exhibition booth are developed, reviewed and assembled to create a compelling booth.

Setting points of contrast

In contrast to the clear and modern booth design, an older central buffer coupling allows live presentation of the reengineering supported by laser measurement as a point of contrast. Finding the what will make you stand out can be adventurous.

Involving the audience walking-by

Constructive elements made of steel and aluminium enable a realistic measuring process.
