And now clip 3 of 3 – “Überhangmandate” (overhang seat – i hope that´s a correct translation). For further information click here.

This clip “Fünf-Prozent-Hürde” (five percent coinsurance clause) is an animation out of a series of three clips. It explains an aspect of the election system in Germany. Together with Astrid Reinberger we made these clips for the Bundeszentrale für polische Bildung (BPB). All clips were made with help of the PICOL signs.
Two other clips, with the title “Überhangmandate” and “Erst- und Zweitstimme” which are already produced, will follow soon. If you can´t wait to see them, you can watch all clips here on the website of the Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung.
PowerPoint and OpenOffice support eps files, but changing the color of the icons isn´t possible with eps files. If you export your icon as *.emf (Enhanced Metafile) you are able to change the colors with PowerPoint, but you lose all your curves, if you look closely on your icon.
It took me some trials to convert the icons made with Illustrator to make them editable with PowerPoint. It takes a few steps, but it works. Now it´s possible to change the color of the icons with PowerPoint and OpenOffice.
