HI, I am Katharina
Service Designer, Experience Designer & Innovation Coach.
In my eight years of professional experience I specialized in facilitating co-creative processes to develop new and improved products and services.
I love to discover, analyze and contextualize research findings and translating them into new or improved products and services.
I have helped various organizations around the world to achieve their goals by working on their strategic, cultural and operational challenges.
If you are ready to go the extra mile, let’s partner in exploring the opportunities and challenges that you are facing in the journey to become and stay relevant.
Innovative sustainable solutions start by diving deep into both the customers' world and clients context starting by finding the real problem. I believe in the approach of rapid-prototyping where testing & learning from failure is key.
My approach is both goal orientated as well as reflective in order to fulfil the direct needs as well as the long-term ambitions of my clients.
