About Stefan

As a strategic designer, I help companies set goals beyond the monetary ones. Materializing the sustainable purpose delivers more happy customers. This improves the DNA of the company and ultimately improves finances.


The basic rules:

👉🏾 It's about helping people by solving THEIR problem.

👉🏾 Increasing efficiency comes later.


For 15 years my focus has been on accessibility and sustainability:


✅ Accessibility

If 0 out of 10 users can access my offer, how much revenue will it drive?


🌱 Sustainability

How many orders will companies receive if 0 out of 10 users find value in the offer?


That's why I submit myself to human and planet centred approaches.The main focus here is on ethical design.

And users come first.

A11Y (Accessibility), Usability and Inclusion: I talk about the differences, concerns and added values of these areas. They have one thing in common: all people benefit from them! 👉🏾 80% Fails Today's products, services and strategies claim to deliver according to the Parreto principle. That is, to provide a solution with 20% effort for 80% of the target group. This is wrong! To even motivate 80% users, it needs almost 100% accessibility! Today's product and service teams fail at that. We try to serve people in far too segmented a way! 👉🏾 External vs. Internal Let's take into account all factors that affect people from inside as well as from outside. Then we have a realistic chance of approaching 100%. 👉🏾 Long-term, Medium-term and Short-term Limitations in accessibility are long, medium or short term. Depending on the circumstances that affect us, we are all disabled! 👉🏾 Permanent, reducible and reversible There are ways and means to make life easier for disabled people! We need to build tools that accelerate the reduction and reversal of disability! 👉🏾 cognitive load Assumptions that most users are too limited turned out to be correct! Cognitive load acts on our nervous system. This gives, or takes away, our freedom to play to our greatest mental capabilities. Cognitive load causes even people with an IQ of +130 to fail. Digitalisation and automation need more care, openness and humility! Because we are all disabled at certain points in time.
