Thomas Gugel is a design-driven Art-Director and Digital Artist based on a firm believe in the importance of concept and meaning. With almost ten years of experience in broadcast and brand-design he offers a strong foundation in the process of developing and layouting an entire crossmedia design-package & design-system. In every project he offers a deep Artistic-Research providing the client with compiled insights to help for a better communication of their message. Paired with a diploma-degree in Design, his affinity for technical details in the Animation/Production process and his increased awareness of economically & ecologically worthwhile project management, he is able to accompany projects throughout the entire process – from the first idea to the last frame rendered.

In addition to years of practical experience in the Design-Thinking ideation process I am a certified Scrum-Master (PSM-I) for agile project management, to add a variety of tools to the classical PM within a design-driven environment.

Although I am not available for pure project management, this knowledge serves my belief in the importance of a content-aware PM to support the creative process and aim towards a time and cost efficient, respectful, satisfying and sustainable design development – for all participants involved.
