Design is shaped by cultural, societal and narrative patterns. And in reverse design impacts our lives.

My expertise is to

align strategic goals with design

I studied design as well as communication science in Austria and France. My focus is to create purposeful design solutions, which help users. Thereby I have a passion for applying research methods to gain a deeper understanding.

Over time my work was awarded with various prizes and recognitions, including the Austrian State Prize, and has been published in Typodarium and Laurence King.

I also write and research about design and data science, and held lectures at the FH Salzburg and the Kunstuniversität Linz.
