Concept & Design

OVER 20 YEARS ORGANIZATIONAL AND AGENCY EXPERIENCE.

During the last 20 years, I have been responsible for holistic Corporate and Agency Branding. This left an imprint. Thus, the idea for the 360 Degree Brand Experience Curation was born. I am also approachable for one-time projects.

  • I worked for agencies as an independent Creative Director of Concept & Design for the entirety of the Brand Experience. B-to-B, specifically, B-to-C with an emphasis on Corporate Branding, Design Management and Measurement, Event- and Presentation Design.
  • I have Experience, as Interimsmanager, with process amendments, review/re-arrange Brandarchitecture, and Design Management. Facilitating Corporate Identity Workshops and Corporate Design planning can all be part of my tasks.
  • I can take over the subsequent choice and temporary steering of the Design Agency in your organization as well. I am a ‘Petrol Head’ and a lover of Car Design.
