Co-Creature wins German Design Award

Digitalist has won the prestigious German Design Award for our very own Co-Creature, a story that describes us as a company in the form of a horror comic book!

“The idea of conducting the presentation in the form of a fantastic Creature Comic was executed to a high artistic standard, arousing curiosity and a lot of fun to watch. Creative, appealing and brave – and unique. Brilliant!”

Co-creature comic book

The purpose of the Co-creature is to explain and present what we work with. Co-creation is a central part of our work. It’s all about utilizing each other’s knowledge and strengths both internally and externally to come up with better solutions. A story is one way of explaining something abstract. Why not a monster story? Why not a love story? Why not both? Utilizing ingredients from classic monster stories we took on the challenge to tell about Digitalist and the way we work as fiction.

German Design Award

If you are interested in co-creation, monsters, chemtrails, comic books (or almost anything) this is for you! The story is written by Matts Hildén at Digitalist and drawn by Ola Skogäng and Rebecka Helmersson.
