With my clients and partners,
I strategically shape and define
services and communication.

As Consulting designer and Concept developer (UX/IA), I map and analyse business processes and existing structures, together with my clients and partners. Based on this we envision, sketch and prototype change by design.


My expertise lies in information gestaltung, identity/branding, system design and visual thinking.

I am founding member of the Berlin-based visual communication and design research association → Plural.

My work is to make connections: To construct bridges, sometimes to build a ship. Always, it starts with exploring and mapping.

Through analytic structuring, collaborative workshops and creative work,
we explore possibilities, prototype services and define communication touchpoints.

•  Exploration, mapping and re-framing
•  Creative research and prototyping
•  Design and implementation
