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

As consulting designer and conceptual modeller, I team up with aspiring enterprises, organizations and individuals, who want to truly improve or do even more: re-invent themselves.

My expertise lies in visual thinking, information architecture and ux design. As a dedicated generalist, I care about meaningful innovation, change by design and the transition of manufacturing brands towards service brands.

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

Big plans, ideas, thoughts to share?

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

Through structuring analysis, innovation workshops and creative work, we explore possibilities, model strategies, prototype services and define communication touchpoints.

•  Exploration, mapping and re-framing
•  Creative research, visual modelling and prototyping
•  Evaluation, strategic design and implementation
