Max Witzstrock pursues a consistently user-centric approach in all of his projects, aiming to make them as simple and intuitive as possible. He always sees the design process as part of a larger context as well. For him, a product to be designed never stands on its own but has to be thought of as part of a system. Max Witzstrock is currently working on a self-employed basis in the fields of industrial design, interior design, trade fair construction and promotion.
