Martin Meier is a design director with over 11 years experience working in the global innovation circus. He is particularly adept at bridging craft with strategy, always approaching complex challenges head-on, and seeking realistic solutions to ambitious goals, without compromising on the original design intent.
He firmly believes design is about orchestrating creative methods and tools to move ideas forward, facilitate partnerships, build an inclusive culture and make things real. This passion for design also spills over into his private life, and he is dedicated to evolving his craft and entrepreneurial muscle through collaborations with other craftsmen, building both products and brands.
Martin honed his design skills at IDEO, where he worked as a Design Director, focusing on facilitating human centered content-led work and building the craft to deliver great design.
He is currently working with the Swiss Life Lab in Zurich, focusing on prop tech and the future of insurance.
In addition to his design work, Martin has also enjoyed teaching and mentoring students at TU Munich, the School of Industrial Design in Lund, ZHDK and the University of applied Science Basel.
