#26reasons - The A-Z campaign for young bank N26 with photography by ILKA & FRANZ and animation by Cris WIEGANDT and Frank GROLL, all artists c/o COSMOPOLA

“This campaign was such a blast. I can remember sitting at the terrace pool this summer in Soho House wondering how we were going to get it all done on time because Ilka & Franz had already planned a trip, and we needed more days to shoot so many more motifs. 26! Plus photos and film.” says Barbi, CEO at COSMOPOLA. “The solution: shooting in London and Berlin, photos in London with Ilka & Franz and film animations in Berlin with Cris Wiegandt and Frank Groll. I got green light for the job while I was on the beach in Nice... I’ll never forget it! The funniest part was the turtle on the skateboard that marked its territory right before its big appearance...;)!”

N26 is a German direct bank specialized in account management via smartphone. The number 26 goes back to the 26 individual cubes in a Rubik’s cube and to the first address at Unter den Linden 26 in Berlin. As of June 2019, the bank has 3.5 million customers, almost 60 percent of which are younger than 35 years old. N26 offers its services today in 24 European countries. GoSee:

Keep Research Alive ! Charité Berlin made a big splash in Summer 2019 with the "Printed by Parkinson's" campaign by Innocean Worldwide - with artwork by Ender SUENNI (photos) and Frank GROLL (film), both artists c/o COSMOPOLA

Charité Berlin is raising awareness for Parkinson’s disease with the world’s first "diseased machine". With more than 10 million people suffering from Parkinson’s across the globe, Charité Berlin strived to raise awareness with an art-based campaign. It was created by a machine that mimics the individual symptoms of those suffering from Parkinson’s.

The fundraising campaign, which includes a doc-series, was created by Innocean Worldwide for Charité Berlin, Europe’s largest University Hospital. The machine was developed by MediaMonks and Cosmopola. The artwork gives unique insight into the lives of six Parkinson’s patients, increasing awareness and emphasizing the importance of finding a cure.

By adding kinetic and neurological data from Parkinson’s sufferers to a 3D printer, the charity was able to create the first "diseased machine", which they used to print altered versions of items that people with the disease are no longer able to use, such as a camera, a chainsaw and a pen.

The campaign aims to make the daily struggle of living with Parkinson’s tangible. The six patients’ kinetic and neurological data was used to create 3D models. The individual art pieces were then 3D-printed as if the printer itself was “infected” by their symptoms. The collection of distorted artwork features beloved objects they have difficulties in using, such as a pen, camera, kayak paddle, and chainsaw.

These 3D prints were available to view (or purchase upon request) from Berlin’s Alte Münze gallery from 26-28 July, with all proceeds going to the Parkinson’s research of Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin. The work was written by Reinier Gorissen, with art direction by Marlon von Franquemont and Kevin Hipke, and directed by Frank GROLL c/o COSMOPOLA Artist Management Berlin.
