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

My work is situated around a questioning of how we can utilize design methodologies and new technologies to create services, products, and experiences which help us driving innovation towards a more sustainable and equitable future. I examine challenges and design solutions through a 2030 Agenda lens, incorporating the UN Sustainable Development Goals into all aspects of my work. In a decade of professional experience, I worked for innovation agencies in the field of digital innovation, supported several social Start-ups in bringing their ideas to life and co-founded the Education Innovation Lab Berlin to foster new thinking in the education sector. Currently, I work as an innovation strategist and UX-Consultant for organizations in the field of Social Innovation and systemic change.

Teaching

I think it is important to share knowledge and experience and to drive exchange with the upcoming generation of designers. Thats why I’m lecturer for Social Innovation and Human-centered Innovation
at universities in Berlin. Together with my students, I explore how we as designers can bring value to societal transformations.

Driving the discourse

Besides my work for clients, I try to push the conversation around social innovation and the transformation of society. I’m part of the Transform collective which publishes the transform magazine to spark conversations around this topic.
I also the author of the “future design principles” which aim to start a discussion about design ethics and the responsibility of designers in the 21.th century
