THIS IS a project by Designer Chris Doering, in collaboration with Coblisher. The idea for THIS IS was born when Chris created the first set of flashcards for his son, who just started speaking his first words—in four different languages. He recently returned from a development aid project in Sri Lanka, where he conducted workshops and lectures at local Universities on innovation and creative collaboration. Back in Berlin, he decided to turn this idea into a product—starting with an edition featuring European languages. Chris has been involved in research projects on information design, visual semiotics, science communication and participatory design and just successfully defended his Ph.D at Bauhaus University Weimar. THIS IS EUROPE is the first pilot for his vision to celebrate cultural diversity through language and design.
