LPS 2022 – Bonn

ESA Living Planet Symposium – Bonn 2022

The client’s request:

In 2022 ESA holds in Bonn (Germany) the 5th edition of the Living Planet Symposium, the biggest conference in the world, entirely dedicated to Earth Observation. ESA needed a partner able to follow, support and supervise all the communication activities related to the event, including the support during the days of the symposium.

Our answer:

ReMedia provides 360-degrees support by creating all the tools for the event promotion, all the venue decorations, gadgets, signage, and videos for the booths. Activities started in September 2021 with the design of the conference key visual and its related branding guide. The idea of the branding has been inspired by digital connections and big data concepts. In fact, this LPS edition was really focused on promoting sustainable cooperation in the EO domain, together with the use of all the most advanced big data technologies. Once the key visual was approved, the Earth Observation Graphic Bureau (EOGB) team of ReMedia started to design the website and soon after they started to produce other promotional tools such as graphics, animations and teasers for social media, and the layout for the web app.

In February 2022 two of our more experienced designers visited the symposium venue in Bonn to better understand the architecture of the spaces to be decorated and the ones that deserved to be highlighted.

As already done in the past, ESA decided to create a sustainable event, in fact part of the printed material was realized with recycled paper or very low impact print techniques, some gadgets were made of compostable material which after use can be planted in the ground, – e.g. the badge holder – and the traditional printed program was replaced by a more sustainable digital one and by a web application.

A great part of the job was represented by the customisation of the main ESA booths together with partner booths (DLR, EUMETSAT, ECMWF…) and this year, we were also committed to produce the commercial ones that were all around the ESA stand. 


The World Conference Center Bonn was decorated with more than 50 panels maintaining the same look and feel linked to the Key visual.


Also the video production was very fruitful in this LPS22. We produced more than 15 videos to be used during the speeches or to be run at the booths. 

We provided our support on-site before the start of the event working together with the architects and the organizing team to make sure that everything was going to work well! We kept on providing on-site and remote support, both to check the setup of the decoration for the whole Conference Center and to produce some last graphic material.

It was really a huge job that has given visibility to all the skills of our company and for which, one more time, we are grateful to ESA for the constant trust they have in our company.

Climate Change from space

Climate Change from space. 

Customer’s request
Cop 26 is the most important conference on climate all over the world. It’s a must for all scientists to be there to be updated on the most relevant results regarding the status of our Planet. Scientists and decision makers from an incredible number of countries (197) were expected in this edition of COP but the time to realise all the needed communication materials (presentations, social media animations, an interactive report), necessary to reach the different audiences, was incredibly short.

Our solution
ReMedia gave life to 28 pages of scientific contents, enriched with very attractive layouts and smart infographics in less than two-weeks time, thanks to the consolidated experience and very sophisticated design skills of its professionals working in ESA premises since 2002: the Earth Observation Graphic Bureau team. The most complete material realised for this occasion was an interactive brochure able to drive the audience among the most complex topics with a simple and straightforward approach. The concept of the cover recalls an eye’s iris: a watchful eye that keeps climate change under careful control. The inside pages provide strong visuals and infographics in support of the contents that explain the different results.

Three sections have been set to structure the overall content:

  1. UNDERSTAND: an explanation of what we call climate change and an introduction to the sources used to pinpoint the results gathered. Infographics are a very relevant part of this section and they have been used, in an animated version, also in social media to create ad hoc posts on COP 26.
  2. DISCOVER: Views of our Planet from Earth Observation satellites and analysis of these images are instead the main content of the Discover section.
  3. ACCESS: The last section provides direct access to the data to both professional users and the general public.

Less than two weeks to achieve outstanding outputs that you can judge with your own eyes downloading the report and looking at the following images of the other materials realised.

ESA TEC directorate website

An engaging B2B website for the European Space Agency fully dedicated to technology development:

The TEC directorate website

The customer’s request:

With more than 1000 employees, the TEC directorate is the greatest directorate of the Agency. Its activities cover all the branches of technology development, from its conceptualisation (years before its development) to testing, till the validation of all its quality standards. Unfortunately, at the start of this project, all these contents were spread on the main ESA website. Moreover the more technical information, for which a company or an Institutional interface such as a Member state, was in search of, was fully absent.

Our answer:

Remedia replies to this request by giving life to one of its most big web project, made of hundreds of pages, massive interaction, clear content structure and easy navigation, and by creating a unique point of reference for all the potential audiences who intend to discover the multitude of opportunities provided by ESA to build new technologies. 


The development of such a big web project through which presenting – in a clear and engaging way – all these massive numbers of contents required very hard work, dedication, passion and high-professionalism to manage the right development steps and priorities. For this reason we started our work by designing the website content structure, and then we moved on with the definition of all the functionalities the website would need to meet its goals: acquire new customers and engage them to take an immediate action. Each page has been built to provide valuable contents and provide a direct contact with the TEC experts. Original 3D images have been also designed to give a very unique identity to the Directorate and enhance the value of the most important topics proposed.
To keep the website live and appealing we also produced a dedicated Content Management System, as a  fully customized – behind-the-scenes – project. We chose this solution in order to have full control on  the future evolution of the website and be able to adapt to any of the users requirements. Our solution is developed on a very stable and market-oriented framework called React. React is one of the fastest and modern technologies available. It works with a JavaScript library for building User Interfaces. It is fast, simple, and scalable. It is simply a JavaScript runtime. A lightweight, fast and modern way to execute code on computers. It is organised in building blocks: stored in libraries, localized, available for use everywhere. Every section of the website is configurable through these building blocks and manageable with flexible layouts via a component-oriented approach that will ease the possibility to change the contents, the structure and even the template of each single page.
Thanks to this solution and the careful design of the structure and layout, the website provides fluent navigation among different types of resources, texts and info.


Last, but not least, the website is fully responsive and browsable from any browsers, except from IE.

New Space Stories: Journey to Astropreneurship

Space 2 Connect 2021

How a great communication mix could make memorable also a digital event

The customer’s request:

SPACE2CONNECT 2021 is the most important event organised by ESA’s TIA directorate. This was the first time that all the suppliers of the upstream and downstream of the Telecommunication sector have been taken together by the European Space Agency. Due to the Covid 19 Pandemia the conference has been rescheduled twice and at the end it was held from the 11th to 14th of October, 2021. The event occurred both as a digital and live event but ust for a small number of key attendees could take part in the event in presence.

ESA’s TIA directorate asked for a 360° support: from the website to the POP materials, including a Linkedin campaign to be created with a very tight deadline.

Our answer:

ReMedia proposed a storytelling communication strategy in which it creates stories around  the Space2Connect objectives and key points to be applied on different communication tools and media. 

The first step was to create a one page website which expressed the entire value of the conference, the 4 days programs with the details of the sessions, proposed also as an interactive pdf, and the production of a teaser to involve the audience.

In parallel with the development of the website we opened a Linkedin page that we populated for all the duration of the campaign and during the conference with ad hoc animations, videos, graphics and articles and an ADV campaign to reach the main European stakeholders and the look alike target audience.

Our main goal was to raise awareness on the event. Then, in a second moment, we created a retargeting campaign to increase engagement, conversion to the website and most of all to move the target to action: make a registration to the event.

For the  live event  we designed a communication material kit (badges, roll-up, flyers, backgrounds, panels, deskbanners, PPT templates, signages and totems) to decorate the venue and provide a strong identity also for the printed materials. Our team provided its support also directly at the on-site conference through the participation of two ReMedia professionals. 

The final number of the event tells about a great success: 900 participants, more than 80 keynote speakers, more than 250 in sync connections,  more than 100 industry virtually exhibiting.

Discover ESA

Start your virtual tour in the ESA world

The customer’s request:

ESA welcomes thousands of visitors to its offices every year with events, Open days and various outreach and dissemination initiatives aimed at creating awareness for its activities towards the widest possible audience. Between 2020 and 2021, due to the pandemic, each event was obviously canceled, but the need to be known has remained even stronger than before. For this ESA has asked Remedia and ATG-Europe to create an interactive, engaging and innovative communication tool, usable from web and mobile to show all the activities of ESA and its offices, giving the appearance of a unique organization, in which each part is connected to the other and which it needs to carry out each task.

Our answer:

For us at Remedia, the key to success of a project is listening to the client’s wishes and interacting with him step by step, throughout the cycle of the process, from conception to the final proposal.

A challenge began in November 2020, which from the very beginning has given our team of experts the opportunity to bring out their professionalism and competence and put in place an attractive technological solution, in line with the customer’s request.
In the development phase we have deepened and outlined, thanks to various meetings with the customer and internal brainstorming, the layout, graphics, contents and possible navigation methods of the platform.
Realistic colours and illustrations were privileged but at the same time recalling a sci-fi setting to enhance the style and identity of the project.

So was born Discover ESA, a digital and interactive application capable of explaining and accompanying the user in a simple and intuitive way to discover the world of ESA.
A virtual and engaging tour which only a video game can do, full of informative material and docu – videos, a journey to discover this amazing world!

To our great satisfaction, the project exceeded the customer’s expectations and Josef Aschbacher, General Manager of ESA, wanted to create an introductory and welcome video on the Discover ESA homepage in which he publicly witnesses his great satisfaction with our innovative platform!

ESA-ESTEC in 99 objects

A memorable journey among the objects that truly tell the story of ESA–ESTEC’s activities. 

Customer’s request
ESTEC is the main establishment of the European Space Agency. Over 100 space missions have taken their first steps along its corridors. ESA-ESTEC needed to explain, in an engaging and catching way, all its activities to a very wide and diversificate audience through a digital platform. The main challenge? Only one month to complete the task and create a successful website.

Our solution
Remedia started its activity by defining a very clear action plan, able to match all the very strict deadlines and requirements. The first issue to be solved was to create one unique look and feel for all the objects and have a massive number of very good photos available for each of them. This is why, soon after the definition of the action plan, Remedia started a dedicated photo shooting to all the selected objects in parallel with the website development.

In three weeks time all the photos have been taken and processed and then included in the website, that through a very simple navigation provides very interesting stories for all the objects, enhanced by great images and videos. Tags and links are used to provide more in-depth information, connecting each object to related contents on other ESA websites and to create also an internal journey among similar objects.

A CMS based on Laravel has been developed to help ESA keep the site constantly updated with the inclusion of new objects. 

The project officially started on the 4th of November 2021 and the website has been published on the 9th of December, meeting the deadlines requested by the customer.

LPS Milan 2019

ESA Living Planet Symposium – Milan 2019

The client’s request:

In 2019 ESA held its 4th edition of the Living Planet Symposium, the biggest conference in the world fully dedicated to Earth Observation. ESA searched for a partner able to follow all the communication activities related to the event, included a complete support during the course of the symposium.

Our answer:

ReMedia provided 360-degrees support by creating all the tools for its promotion, all the venue decorations, gadgets, signage and videos for the booths. Activities started in March 2018, with a visit to the symposium venue: the MICO congress center (Milano Congressi). This was really a key activity for us, to better understand the architecture of the spaces to be decorated and the key parts to be highlighted to enhance every single environment.
Since the symposium wanted to have a low impact on climate we created quite a half of the communication tools in digital format, fully customizable and reusable for future editions of the conference. Moreover, most of the printed ones were produced with recycled paper, except for the panels of the stands and the building’s films.
The design phase started with the production of the conference key visual and its related style guide, and then proceeded with the design of the call for paper, the invitations cards and the website production;
we then started to produce other promotional tools such as graphics, animations and teasers for social media, and the layout for the app to guide the participants trhough the event sessions and entertainment activities.

We then started to create all the panles to decorate the venue and all its booths.

Finally we produced promotional tools to be given away during the event itself: customised gadget, badge the symposium programme and flyer, roll-up, digital posters and videos for the booths.
During the conference days we directly supported the even on-site: we presented some ESA tools at the booths (yes, we can also do this for you!) and we worked in the director’s room to change in real-time teh conference programme and the powerpoint presentation.

A huge job that has really given visibility to all the skills of our company.

Cambio stile

Cambio stile

The customer’s request:

Well-being comes from proper nutrition and a healthy lifestyle.

This concept should represent a “mantra” for every human being to follow in every period of his existence, especially since he is very young.

For this reason and to raise awareness among students of both primary and secondary school, on the increasingly looming danger of childhood obesity and food-related diseases, we were commissioned by the MIUR for a publication that would tell children about the concrete need to a healthy and balanced diet and the right motor activity, throughout your life.

Our Answer:

To respond effectively to the customer’s request, we first analyzed the target of the publication, its communication style and the communication channels to which it was closest. Thinking about digital natives, we immediately thought that the publication could not be printed, but digital.
In the initial phase we divided our stakeholders into two distinct audience groups: elementary / middle school children and teenagers (13 – 18 years).
We have thus chosen to undertake two different communication approaches, both in the graphic style and in the contents but with a single denominator, the technological solution: a touchbook.

Thanks to this tool we have created an innovative publication:

  • for the little ones, full of games and illustrations dedicated to nutrition and sport
  • for the older ones accompanied by columns, curiosities and information so as to make it look like a diary.

With the advent of Expo 2015 it was decided to expand the product even further by adding content dedicated to food as “nourishment for the planet and energy for life”, as the theme of the Universal Exposition stated.
The result was very positive and the project closed with the approval of the Ministry of Education, a press conference, a communication campaign and dedicated pages in school newspapers.

In addition, to allow wider use to all the public of the EXPO, the touchbook has been published on all major Kindle, Android and Apple stores and in 3 languages: Italian, French and English.
