As a Senior Visual Designer at frog, Jens is passionate about storytelling and bringing visionary ideas to life. Focusing primarily on strategic communication, he leads and works with design teams to create innovative brand strategies, construct corporate identities and design new services, interfaces and user experiences.

During his almost 6 year long employment at IDEO as a Communication Design Lead, Jens has contributed to a wide range of client projects in industries as diverse as luxury lifestyle brands and financial services. Projects have included designing a new E-mobility offer for a German car manufacturer and redesigning the business class experience for Europe's biggest airline Lufthansa.

Prior to that, Jens worked as a freelance designer for nearly a decade. His passion for design took him to Milan, where he was an art director with FRAGILE, a design agency run by renowned architects Mario Trimarchi and Michele de Lucchi. Jens also collaborated with the video art studio N!03, where he helped develop award-winning multimedia experiences and interactive events for museums and other public spaces. He has also worked as an art director for several print publications, including the German business magazines brand eins and ECONY, as well as McKinsey’s corporate publication McK Wissen.

Jens studied communication design at the Institute of Design in Hamburg. His editorial and web design work have received several awards, including a 2008 gold LACP award, a 2005 Italian eCulture award, and a nomination for the German Lead Awards.

Though now based in Munich, Jens continues to nurture his love of Italy with frequent trips to the region to visit friends, practice his fluent Italian and replenish his stock of prosciutto crudo.
