Let's create products, tools and
services that
empower people and
foster
social innovation!

Hi there,
I’m a Designer based in Berlin with a focus on social innovation.
With a broad background in Communication-Design, Interaction-Design
and Design Thinking, I bridge disciplines ranging from Art Direction,
Concept development to User Experience creating innovative services
and products to drive change within society.

Creating experiences

The simplicity and usability of services and products
are the foundation for a great user experience.
I help you to develop your digital product from
rapid prototype to final implementation
across all touch points and devices.

Telling visual stories

To create products and services that stand out
they have to communicate visually in a nutshell.
I help you to develop your story by simplifying
complex topics to the key points and creating
a visual language that sticks.

Gaining new insights

Understanding the perspective and needs of users
and stakeholders is the key to a successful product or service.
I help you gain new insights by carry out qualitative user research
and facilitating co-creation workshops to start conversations
with your stakeholders.

Design for people instead
of clients and for change instead of consumption

The last years I mainly worked in the field of digital product development with companies like Siemens, Cornelsen, Deutsche Telekom and Volkswagen . Besides working in the corporate sector for me it’s very important to work with social businesses and NGO’s. I’m convinced that they are important key drivers to foster change. Believing that Human Centered Design as methodology and mindset
holds huge potential to empower people, you can find me on events like Kids-Hackathons mentoring youngsters to tinker with technologies, at conferences like re:publica teaching people how to build rapid prototypes or coaching students in Service Design at the Global Service Design Jam.
