Hey there!

I am an industrial designer from Germany with several years of experience working in international consultancies, in-house design teams and as a freelancer. Despite my profession as an industrial designer I try to address design challenges in an holistic way. I like to think beyond the product and to include users, business, brand & strategy. During my career I have been fortunate to work for a wide range of companies including global market leaders, start-ups, NGOs and B2B niche players. Several products & projects I have been working on have been awarded with international design awards such as Red Dot, iF & Core77. I have a strong passion for design sketching and that shines through on my design sketchblog on Instagram, as an online educator in my online video course and in sketching workshops I gave at different international universities. My goal as a designer is to use my skills to drive positive change, to be conscious about the impact of my work and to design products as well as experiences that serve a purpose and make people smile.

Sounds interesting? I am always happy to make new connections – feel free to reach out via mail(at)mariuskindler.com
