Strategic Designer and Technologist | Currently at moovel Lab| Into exploring public life, riding folding bike and strolling around

Hello! I'm Markus Kreutzer, a Strategic Designer and Technologist. I was raised in a small town in Southern Germany, briefly lived in Barcelona, Berlin, New York City, Santiago de Chile and Valencia, and currently I’m based in Stuttgart and Berlin.

I work strategically across disciplines on the design and development of services, products, systems, processes, narratives and experiences with the purpose of creating desirable and lasting impact for humans and earth. I have a background in Communication and Product Design but I'm constantly broadening my skills in all kinds of directions, from Software Development, Anthropology and Urban Planning to Business Strategy.

Currently I’m exploring the future of urban mobility at moovel Lab. Before that I worked with organizations and institutions such as the MIT, TheGreenEyl, BuzzFeed, Domestic Data Streamers and Daimler.
