I am a communication designer and design strategist currently residing in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. My work focusses on social and ecological requirements. With a foresight mindset I aim to use my unique problem-solving skills to design meaningful concepts and drive social change.
I am interested in future-oriented issues.
I am neither dispirited nor disheartened. I believe in the future, in wanting to make it a better place and in my ability to shape it while remaining enthusiastically committed and engaged.
I am a digital native.
I grew up in the internet age and bring an understanding about new technologies. I can make your business grow successfully in the digital age and help you to become a digital pioneer. Book me as a consultant.
My design practice
Effective design arises when different disciplines meet. In my design practice I see myself as an inter- or transdisciplinary team worker, communicator and mediator. Core of my work is to involve people into the design process. Co-creation and co-prototyping helps to gain empathy, understand diverse perspectives and create conceptual as well as goal driven design. Besides creating economic success I think designers can be a driving force for social progress and in minimizing global issues by bringing them down to a tangible level. I use Future Thinking to illustrate potential scenarios and to experience and impacting different futures. It becomes possible to test the desirability of future developments and collectively define the requirements for the world of tomorrow.
During my studies I gained some freelance experience in Branding, Graphic Design and Illustration and did some voluntary service for diverse cultural activities. I am constantly evolving and always looking for new opportunities, where my interest for technology is combined with design methods and a strategic approach. In between times I am also available for freelance projects.
