Kevin Spitta


What started as being the designer for my high school magazine, led to various graphic design work and ultimately to the creation of websites, motion design, and integrated campaign work. The required strategic mindset in all of the above made we want to strengthen these skills through a masters degree in Chicago. Besides the focus on business acumen and marketing strategy in school, my time in the U.S. and San Francisco, in particular, initiated my genuine interest in technology and innovation.

I am thriving when I work on difficult problems and when working in a cross-functional and diverse team environment that fosters ideas beyond the imaginable.
