I'm of the constellation of The Hound
You can never be 100% sure what design titles really stand for these days. I think this is because designers can hardly be put in a box. When I look at my path and experience, what I see is a complex constellation of skills in continuous evolution. Lately, I believe it looks something like this:
Ultimately, I think that a well-designed world is a place where people don't have an excuse to do the wrong thing.
Design that makes knowledge accessible, that reduces waste, that promotes health, but also design that protects privacy, that minimises errors, that buys you time, that's what really drives me.
This is why in all of my projects I challenge myself and my team to find ways to apply human-centred methodologies and design thinking to the development process, no matter how Agile.
I believe in designing team rituals that nurture different kinds of talents and grow a culture of collaboration and respect.
Topics that put sparkles in my eyes: design for social innovation, circular design, IoT, slow technology.
If I'm not designing or talking about design, you might find me:
...on my endless hunt for the best pizza in Berlin,
...looking up the etymology of some random word,
...having an internal struggle about watching a film d'auteur or the nth Netflix tv-show.
