More than just a visual appearance. In memory of Heiner Jacob

Ten years ago today, Professor Heiner Jacob, one of the leading experts in the field of corporate identity, passed away. Since his time at HfG Ulm and later at KISD, Jacob worked tirelessly to research and teach the importance of corporate identity and brand communication.

He believed that corporate identity is more than just a visual appearance, but that it has profound effects on a company’s culture and behavior. He left a lasting impression on his students here to this day through his engaging lectures and inexhaustible thirst for knowledge.

Ten years after his passing, Jacob’s contribution to the field of corporate identity and the design world remains undisputed. His wisdom and passion will always be remembered by all those who had the privilege of knowing him. We are grateful for all he did for us and will always remember him.
