Jurors red dot award: communication design 2006
"Due to interface and interaction design, the Internet is more and more developing into an exciting stage for experiments of movement and sound."
David Linderman, born in Austin, USA, in 1970, studied design and art at Wisconsin University and communication design in Hildesheim. He worked at Meiré und Meiré in Cologne as well as Springer & Jacoby in Hamburg, before founding the multimedia agency Fork Unstable Media with offices in Hamburg, Berlin and New York together with Manuel Funk in 1996. The studio gained international attention with its "Trash Games", among them "Princess Diana Tunnelracer", which were discussed in "The Face" among other magazines. Besides his work for Lufthansa, DaimlerChrysler and Nivea for example, Linderman focuses increasingly on the dynamic interface between graphic design, art, and club culture and develops interactive artistic works for the Internet and international exhibitions. He has received several distinctions, ADC New York, Cannes Cyber Lions and I.D. Annual Design Review among others, and he has been professor at Hochschule für Gestaltung Offenbach since 2005.
