Christian Kropfeld

Hello my name is Christian. I am a product designer and innovation manager from Forchheim in Germany. After graduating Integrated Product Design at Coburg University, I specialized during my master degree in Creative Direction at University Pforzheim in designing innovative business concepts and strategies.

In a world full of mass production, new ways are needed to stand out. My goal is to develop concepts, strategies and products to enhance the relationship between a company and its customer, creating meaning behind a brand. I am passionate about developing new experiences for your customers.

Starting with a systematic analysis of the end-user and the existing product portfolio, we will have a look in potential innovative areas on how to enhance the customer’s experience. In order to achieve the desired outcome, multiple iterative revisions make sure to stay on track.
