Most of all, I look forward to great customers and incredibly talented, versatile colleagues in all three locations. The creative management in an independent design and branding agency with this unique creative culture - whether visual, technical, entrepreneurial, strategic or system-driven - is a perfect match for me.
Philipp Brune, CEO: "With David Linderman as part of the management team, we not only secure an understanding of design and technology that has evolved in countless projects, but also creative leadership that guides interdisciplinary teams with a great deal of experience and enables them to grow beyond themselves.
