 Let’s work visually to structure ideas 
 and to create successful change by design. 

As Structural Designer and Visual Conceptioner, I work with startups, transforming organizations and companies, and aspiring individuals. Together, we shape ideas into visual models and successful products.

Whether you face visual, conceptual or strategic design challenges: I offer support in brand architecture, data visualisation, digital products and services.

My work is based on collaborative visual structuring and exploration, my belief in human-centered change by design and a broad experience in information gestaltung, system design and visual thinking.

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

 To design excellent products and services, 
 the first step is to design the right approach. 

To kick off the creative work, I usually start by mapping and analysing processes and structures with you. In a workshop we envision, sketch and prototype desirable future scenarios, products and touchpoints.

•  Mapping: structuring, analysis, re-framing
•  Prototyping: creative research, exploration, evaluation
•  Realisation: visual design, detailed refinement, implementation

For the realisation you choose: Do you prefer this as external full service? Or should I take a consulting role among your designers and developers? We will find out what is favourable in your case.
