Hi! I’m Gerald, an interdisciplinary designer at the crossing of visual art, fiction, and strategy. Drawing from my design studies in Vienna, Copenhagen, and London, I work on shaping the future of the sustainability transformation. 

Some of my work was awarded and recognized within and beyond the creative industry. I’m based in Austria but work internationally.

With a background in communication and speculative design, I combine ideation with systems thinking to innovate sustainably.
