The name Jung Koch Quentell came to be as they were the last names of the three men, all scientists, who in the fifties designed the charts for the German publishing company Hagemann, which supplied learning aids to German Schools. Their aim was to create universal charts, without text, which would be easy to interpret for teachers in any language.
Important principles of these charts were that the colors were true (up to 10 colors per chart) and that the size of the charts were large enough to be seen by the entire classroom. The scientific rigor and artistic perfection they applied to creating these charts ensured their international success as learning aids.
