Hi, I am Gabriel Brückner, a design entrepreneur with expertise in conceptualising, prototyping and implementing novel business ideas, products and services.
With a background in Industrial Design (BA) and Global Innovation Design (MA, MSc) I have worked on many different products and services, taking them from concept stage to working prototypes for user testing or design validation and to manufacturing or implementation. My expertise lies in the full scope of product development from the idea to the final product with a focus on functionality, clever engineering and tidy appearance.
