Open Eyes Mainz 2023

Tour of Mainz’s Creative and Media Industries

Author: Josephine Schroeder

Open Eyes Mainz 2023 is a project of the Mainz University of Applied Sciences in cooperation with the Designforum Rheinland-Pfalz, the business development of the city Mainz and the Gutenberg Digital Hub.

Mainz and the surrounding area are home to a large number of agencies, offices, studios, production companies, self-employed professionals, and businesses in the creative and media industries. Many have been founded by students at Mainz University of Applied Sciences. Contact with this creative and media industry is to be visibly expanded: For the students of the Mainz University of Applied Sciences, but also for all interested citizens of the city of Mainz.

To this end, students in the Design Department are developing the third Open Eyes tour of Mainz in the summer semester of 2023 for all students at the university and citizens of the state capital. Visits to the creative and media industries are planned: photo and film studios, digital agencies, broadcasters, copywriters, illustrators, architecture and interior design firms, design agencies, marketing teams, and many more.

The students of the Mainz University of Applied Sciences are further developing the event series Open Eyes this year: from the conception, the corporate design, the media appearance (social media, website, flyers, posters), the overall organization to the implementation. The tour with the eye as key visual ends in the evening at 6 p.m. with a get-together at the Gutenberg Digital Hub on the banks of the Rhine.

On June 15th, 2023, around 140 students and interested citizens of the city of Mainz will experience 27 creative minds, agencies, and studios of Mainz’s creative and media industry in seven groups.
