My name is Anna-Lisa Schoenecker and I'm a multi-disciplinary designer and professor for Information Design at Mainz University of Applied Sciences, Germany with a Master in Communication Design from the Royal College of Art. This website publishes my research and transfer projects and showcases my students' work.
I began my career at Pentagram working on editorial and corporate design projects for the Tate Gallery, the National Trust, Boot Clibborn Editions and Time Life. Going digital in 1998 first at Syzygy, later at Oyster/Framfab (now DigitasLBi) I led multi-disciplinary design teams to create compelling communication and experience design solutions for the arts and entertainment industry and developed award-winning projects for clients such as the South Bank Centre, the Victoria & Albert Museum and Disney. My fortes are interactive content and cross-media communications.
As a research fellow of the Institute Designlabor Gutenberg I'm teaching Information Design and Interactive Media at Mainz University of Applied Sciences where I focus on information design, cross-media installations and experience design. My field of research investigates computational thinking skills in early learning.
I designed the typeface “White No Sugar” for FUSE and my work has been recognised by the New York Art Director’s Club and One Show Interactive amongst others and published in “Women in Graphic Design 1890-2012” and “G1, Icons of Graphic Design”.
I hold two BA degrees (graphic design and product design) and a MA in communications design from the Royal College of Art, London.
