First up is their pet project POST, a tool designed to make life easier for journalists—and an idea rooted in their close collaboration with newsrooms. Last year their original idea won support from Google, allowing them to get it through the prototyping stage (and you can read about that here). Now, with a second, even bigger round of funding, they’ll bring POST to life, developing the product and bringing it to the market in cooperation with 10 media houses in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.
Christian Hanke, Partner & Creative Director of the agency, says:
At Edenspiekermann we develop helpful tools for journalists to bring their stories to life in front of their audiences. The Digital News Initiative gives us the opportunity to research and prototype new tools, bringing journalism forward in times where we need it most.
And that’s just half of the good news. Their second funded project is a collaboration with Swiss media house AZ Medien which will revolutionize local community communication within Switzerland—digitally, securely, and intuitively. By taking the traditional “Anzeiger” publications online, they’ll make their information more accessible to both local citizens and also to those who rely on the information for journalistic content.
