Creating beauty is the essence of what I want to do.

While it is important to balance a product’s functionality and the constraints of the project,

the end goal should always be to create something wonderful.

COLOUR

As a human, you can see about 10 million different colours.
I believe every colour is beautiful, it only depends how and where it is used.

It is the first thing we perceive, whenever we look at something, no matter whether it is an object, a space, a logo, or any type of interface.

Colour can provoke strong emotions and is a powerful tool in design, when used in a purposeful and creative way.

MATERIALS

When we talk about design inspiring our senses, many just refer to visual appearance.

Materials can of course offer a fantastic appearance, but they do so much more.

We can feel them, smell them, they can surprise us, seduce us, they can create or enhance certain functions of a product, and influence our perception of its value.

TRENDS

People can have very different perceptions of the meaning behind the word ‘TRENDS’. Like ‘design’ it seems to be overused and misplaced at times.

The interesting part for me is the bigger picture.

Shifts in social patterns, which all consumer products respond to, do happen slowly, but constantly.
Experience and sensibility are important to notice those changes and connect the dots.

“Inspiration the seed. Design but the flower.”

BRANDS  |   SELECTION

Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to not only work across many different product areas, but also with a wide range of companies around the world, from small design studios to large multinationals, as a consultant or as part of their in-house team.

ABOUT  |

After studying in Germany and South America, I started working as a designer in different places around the world and have gathered 15 years of experience in the industry. It excites and motivates me, to use this experience for my work and at the same time learn new things every day.

On every project, I try to bring together my appreciation for beautiful forms, my interest in materials and the impact of colour.
Design for me is the point where function, aesthetics and people’s emotions meet.

It’s about wonder and wondering, making things better, enthusiasm, innovation and seeing things from from different angles. I find the strategic side of things as equally interesting as the aesthetic, creative part with attention to detail.
