    Design and Creative Leadership

    Munich, Germany

I am an industrial design expert with over 15 years of experience in designing innovative and beautiful, award winning products for fortune 500 companies. I regularly set marks in the academic field, my designs were published in several international design books and I was a Jury member in various design competitions - just recently for the renowned IF design awards. During the past years i have worked as a principal director of design for global innovation consultancy frog design and as a Creative Director for BMW Designworks. In 2015 i have founded RCBD GmbH - a small and agile product design studio located in Munich, Germany. I am always very interested in international industry contacts for possible project collaborations to help shaping the next product innovation.
