How do you impress in seconds for the Montblanc Smartwatch?

“Develop designs for the first Montblanc Smartwatch Summit. Make sure each icon quickly explains its functionality.” A task that inspired us to create a high-quality b/w look that combines the timeless, typical Montblanc aesthetic with modern iconography and intuitive smartwatch design language.

The task also involved the design of icons and animations for core functions of software co-operation partners Uber, Runtastic and Foursquare. For icon illustration we worked with the Hamburg Designer Michael Matthias. The Montblanc Smartwatch “Summit” is available worldwide from June 2017 onwards.
