About me

Sehr begabter, teamf√§higer und erfahrener (Transportation-) Designer mit wirklich vielf√§ltigen Interessen auf der fortlaufenden Suche nach neuen Herausforderungen und innovativen (Design-) Projekten - von A wie Ambiente (oder Automobil), bis zu Y wie Yacht. Ich gestalte am liebsten greifbare Projekte mit zukunftsweisenden und √∂kologischen Ans√§tzen, verbunden mit technischer Innovation, hohem gestalterischem Anspruch und funktionierendem Marketing. Unsere Welt, ihre Prozesse und Strukturen, und letztlich auch unser aller Anspruch an zeitgem√§√üe Produkte und Lebensr√§ume sind oftmals hoch komplex. Ich stelle mich t√§glich diesen Herausforderungen zusammen mit meinen Kunden. Ich bringe hierbei mein branchen√ľbergreifendes Wissen, mein berufliches K√∂nnen, meine aussergew√∂hnliche Kreativit√§t und meine F√§higkeiten zum analytischen Denken gewinnbringend und zielorientiert in die Teamarbeit auf Zeit mit ein. Ergebnis: Ein gelungenes Produkt und Kundenerlebnis mit minimalem Fu√üabdruck.
