Hi! I am Sebastian, a twenty-three year old creative thinker and passioned interdisciplinary designer from Germany, focus on creating meaningful experiences, business driving product and service solutions and humanizing new technology trends.

FOCUS: Industrial Design, Strategic Design, User Experience, Interaction Design.

EXPERIENCE: 2,5 years (1 year Inhouse, 1,5 year Consultancy)

Right now, I am doing the "Advanced Product Design" Master at Umeå Institute of Design, Sweden (ranked in the BusinessWeeks World Best Design Schools). I trained with global in-house design studios as well as design/innovation consultancies and start-ups, on seeking design challenges and opportunities by collaborating within interdisciplinary teams and on how new experiences connect brands and products with people. I have been fortunate enough to work with various international brands and have been awarded by international renowned design awards like the Core77 Design Award, SPARK or Industrial Design Excellence Awards (IDEA - Industrial Design Society of America).

I am especially fascinated by the value of design in the area of business and how it potentially reinvents industries. In times of Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things, I strongly believe in the increasing value of the designers role in the innovation process of products and services: In my view, technology enables, but design delivers meaning by focusing on the human experience. For designing these experiences in an increasing connected and intelligent environment, the focus on empathy, psychological needs and emotions becomes more and more important. In addition, I think the design process and its principles can have a big impact on solving larger and complex problems. We are seeing more and more fields like finance, health or even governments recognizing the value of a design-driven innovation process and applying it to their organizations.

I am blogging on this change of design at designdrives.org.
