Our Team

We see design as an all-embracing discipline. And we’re no less diverse when it comes to what we do: a wide range of competitions, events, media, and consulting projects make up the day-to-day work at the German Design Council. With all the interdisciplinary expertise in our team, it’s no wonder that we’ve made a success of it: from design and architecture to business economics, event management and communications.
