Arriving / Information for refugees


More than 10.000 refugees arrive daily in Germany. Every person has a different story and different reasons why they had to leave their home country. They are looking for support and a new beginning. „Arriving“ is an information system for refugees. On the one hand it welcomes the newcomers, on the other hand it is a tool to inform, giving orientation in their new home. The information system includes bilingual posters, magazines (with emergency card and map), a multilingual summary poster of the procedure for granting the right of asylum and information signs. The media is mainly used in the shared accommodations.
