Animated explanatory videos on etymology

The aim of the project was to design, animate and produce a series of explanatory videos dealing with the diverse etymology of everyday German terms such as “quarantine”, “raid” or the origin of “spinach”. The target group was both children and adults who want to broaden their understanding of historical contexts.
