Christian is the guy designers are ambivalent about. He’s not a font guy. He’s the business guy—the one who works the odd hours creating and maintaining relationships with some of the largest companies in the world. Over the past decade, he has led business development efforts for numerous agencies on three continents.
He began his career with MetaDesign in Berlin, eventually being part of the team opening their Beijing office. After leaving MetaDesign, he helped multimedia firm Luxoom restructure their China operations. Following a move back to Germany, Christian oversaw business development for global marketing consultancy GlobeOne. Most recently, he founded a successful eCommerce software startup in Berlin. (He also knows the words to almost every Katy Perry song.)
Now Christian manages Edenspiekermann Los Angeles, the newest office of the global design agency. Founded by graphic design legend Erik Spiekermann, the agency focuses on creating brand identities and digital products for forward-thinking companies.
