Mark

I use design as a critical communicative and translative tool to prototype narratives and situations to envision and tinker with possible futures built on a strong belive in the collaborative capabilities of humans.

My design approach seeks for plain and bold ways of communication.

I am living and working in Vienna, Austria.
