Data visualization, knowledge visualization, mapping
The visualization of abstract data and content is more important than ever in a time when large quantities of information have to be handled. C2F develops information systems for companies, museums and institutions. For example, C2F has made data and information from Zurich's underground visible for the Museum of Design, or visualized research data for the Weingart exhibition. For the Allgemeine Baugenossenschaft, they have presented the data and information in infographics for the annual report. For the Design Museum, C2F has visually processed information on historical atlases in graphics.

The Swiss Embassy in New Delhi, opened in 1963, is one of the most prominent examples of modern Swiss representative architecture. As an architectural symbol of the political friendship between an old and a young democracy, Hans Hofmannʼs building bears witness to the examination of India's cultural, architectural and climatic conditions. The publication, conceived and designed by C2F, was created on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Swiss Embassy in New Delhi.
