Cross-media news format 'ZDF heute+' – CAPE ROCK creates entire design package

On May 18th the ZDF has launched their new cross-media news format 'ZDF heute+' on air and online. The new program must think laterally, question the mainstream news and offer access to new topics. It is targeted to digital natives. Before the TV broadcast, the individual clips of the programme will be spread online and via social media and can be discussed there. 'ZDF heute+' can be watched daily at 11 p.m. live in the ZDFmediathek. The on-air broadcast follows in the former time slot of 'ZDF heute nacht'.

The Amsterdam design agency CAPE ROCK is responsible for the complete design package – from logo design, programme packaging and infographics to the virtual studio design, to the audio and sound design. The idea for the set design is based on an idea by the ZDF team that creates all news graphics.

The task was to design the individual elements in a way they would particularly stand out on mobile. "The aim for ZDF heute+ was to create a new, more edgy and urban style that appeals to a younger audience and still fits the ZDF brand," says Marco-Paul de Jeu, Strategy Director CAPE ROCK. "The challenge was to develop a design language with optimal lay-outs that work on multiple screens for: mobile, desktop, TV, in which the concept of streaming news, data and information would be reflected.'

Exhibition tip: 'Eadweard Muybridge. Animal Locomotion'

Until 4 October 2015, the Pinakothek of Modern Art in Munich is showing the exhibition 'Eadweard Muybridge. Animal Locomotion'.

Eadweard Muybridge is one of the pioneers of motion photography. Using a complex experimental setup and innovative camera technology, he became the first photographer in history to succeed in capturing the movement of a galloping horse in a series of individual photographs. In 1887, he published the epochal photographic study 'Animal Locomotion', showing humans and animals in motion on a total of 781 plates. It is one of the milestones in the history of photography and today serves as a prominent reference point for science and art.

The exhibition shows a selection of 22 plates from Eadweard Muybridge's "Animal Locomotion" from the collection of the Ann and Jürgen Wilde Foundation.

'Eadweard Muybridge. Animal Locomotion' until 4 October in the Pinakothek of Modern Art, Barer Strasse 40, 80333 Munich. Opening hours: Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Further information at http://www.pinakothek.de/kalender/2015-04-23/53705/eadweard-muybridge-animal-locomotion
