As you may already know, I am collaborating since early July as Creative Director at Method in San Francisco. This opportunity gives me the possibility to take on new challenges and develop my experience as well as my network in a new working environment.
Of course, projects will continue at onlab. As CEO, Christine Gückel-Daxer will take charge of onlab in Berlin and head the team in our new premises along with talented and experienced Creative Director Thomas Weyres. Thibaud Tissot will assume as Executive and Creative Director management of onlab in Switzerland in autumn where he will strengthen our studio presence at home along with an outstanding local team. The 2 offices will continue to collaborate as a single entity.
From a distance and as the founder of onlab, I will be staying on in an advisory capacity.
The paradigm shift in knowledge transfer, news and information processing, and the ensuing social changes, constitute a new and compelling field.
As designers, we stage content, create connections, tell stories and make them readable, thus creating qualitative value at both the visual and narrative level. These are the central ideas I have addressed – later together with Thibaud – while managing onlab with passion, enthusiasm and assiduity to become an internationally-recognized design studio.
As a graphic entrepreneur and after intensive years of commissioned, collaborative and self-initiated design and publishing projects, it is now time for me to embrace new challenges. After so many years in Berlin, in the heart of one of the most creative cities, I am looking forward to experiencing a different environment – and to being closer to the sea.
