I am a business consultant, art director, graphic designer, packaging designer, coach and mentor with a track record of 15+ years of supporting individuals, entrepreneurs and social entrepreneurs turn their ideas into marketable products.
My name is Susanne … nice to meet you!
I consult my clients on their complicated projects, I help them simplify their ideas into digestible pieces and I help them spoon-feed these pieces to their consumers – this is what I truly enjoy doing.
As a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) I have a high emotional awareness. Because I understand what moves people emotionally, I am able to capture your consumers with creative concepts, ideas and design that speak directly to them.
I’m passionate about social projects. I especially enjoy supporting social entrepreneurs with their great ideas and I help them catalyze their vision, purpose and passion into concrete ideas.
Design has always been a way for me to express my sensitivity. Beautiful typography says so much more then just the words themselves. Perfectly matched colors can give you a feeling of instant balance. A single photo can tell you a long intense story. And a mix of all 3 can be immensely powerful. I truly enjoy finding design solutions to challenging problems. Design for me should have a purpose not just good looks.
I believe that less is more!
