Porsche Informatik goes art, episode 2

Expressing corporate values through art

“In interaction and collaboration, people need guiding principles and values, preferably a collective self-image, rather like corporate DNA”, were the opening words of CEOs Rainer Trischak and Manfred Immitzer in their eulogy. This is the second time that our guiding principles – the Porsche Informatik DNA – have been cleverly visualised by a team of creative artists from the company.
