Excellent! FOCUS-BUSINESS selects LSD among the “TOP Medium-Sized Employers 2020”
For the third time now, FOCUS-BUSINESS and the employer rating portal kununu have awarded prizes to the best medium-sized companies in Germany. And LSD GmbH & Co. KG is one of the “TOP Medium-Sized Employers 2020”. With around 900,000 company profiles, kununu is the largest employer rating portal in Europe. Among other things, employees evaluate the work-life balance, the working atmosphere and the environmental and social awareness of their company. Based on these surveys, FOCUS-BUSINESS has now selected the “TOP Medium-Sized Employers 2020”. LSD could convince in all categories and thus secure a place in the coveted list of “TOP Medium-Sized Employers 2020”. In the past, LSD has already been awarded the “Top Company” seal by kununu and was most recently ranked among the top 10 employers in the printing and media industry in Germany, Austria and Switzerland in the major 2019 employer ranking of Druck & Medien magazine. The most employee-friendly companies in Germany and thus “TOP Medium-Sized Employers 2020” will be presented in November in a FOCUS-BUSINESS special issue.

LSD fascinates with new technologies in Hamburg
With the slogan “Welcome to the Future – Augmented Reality as a powerful marketing tool”, LSD invited the participants of the Marketing Club Hamburg e. V. to look behind the scenes of a trend-setting media production – from “handmade” prototypes to modern marketing resource management and virtual supermarkets.
How completely new dimensions of interaction and spectacular product experiences can be created with the help of Augmented and Virtual Reality, the participants were able to experience up close in the so-called “New Dimension Lab”.
When reality and digitalization are well connected, the door opens to the fascinating world of Augmented Reality. The power of the concrete, complemented by the almost limitless possibilities of additional digital information.
LSD on the largest playground for adults
The DIGITAL KINDERGARTEN on 6 June 2019 in Hamburg’s Millerntor Stadium is all about discovering new digital trends and technologies in marketing and communication. Clearly, LSD as an actor should not be missed. It is easier to understand how innovations can be used if you try them out for yourself.
Visitors to the New Dimension Lab at the booth go on a virtual journey of discovery and get up close with augmented realities. Thanks to snoopstar, the gadget playground has one more dimension. The augmented reality app makes exhibition stands, roll-ups and floor stickers a virtual experience. The offline world is combined with the online world to create a unique AR adventure.
LSD rocks the table soccer tournament of the packaging design agencies
Clear the ring for team SNOOPERS! At the table soccer tournament “Kick Off” of the packaging design agencies in Hamburg, the LSD team showed what it could do in terms of speed and skill. 31 teams took up the challenge and competed against each other. All their physical effort was required to get the ball into the opponent’s goal. In the end, the SNOOPERS took 4th and 5th place. Besides lots of fun and action, LSD as main sponsor raffled a superb WEBER gas grill among all the guests. It was great to combine the real game world with the digital one. At the booth, the guests were kidnapped into the virtual world and experienced Augmented Reality live.
snoopstar at Mintel's Europaen Roadshow
At Mintel’s European roadshow, snoopstar proves that augmented reality is capable of reconnecting consumers and brands. AR is a real-time information courier. And it’s much more! It’s the bridge between the analog and digital world, between offline and online, that opens up completely new dimensions of interaction and communication. As a kind of “animatrice social” it provides direct contact with the environment and things. This promises not only unheard-of, vivid experiences, but also new – and emotional – bonds. We invite visitors to step into augmented reality live at our snoopstar booth. Discover how AR opens windows on our mobile displays to the really relevant information. Scan (i.e. “snoop”) objects with your smartphone camera and experience how brands and companies succeed, for example, in expanding customer “journeys” by bringing products to life with virtual elements such as moving images, animations, 3D, video and audio clips. Immerse yourself in a beautiful new world.
