I am passionate about working on projects that are fancy. For me, fancy means that there is space to implement ideas and create an appealing look. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a logo or a complete corporate identity, a website or a digital application, it has to look impressive – and that’s what I’m here for! But be careful: less is sometimes more and I try to tease out this specific “more or less”.

Tobias Burkhardt

I am an entrepreneur by conviction, a teacher by accident and a creative by heart. I live and breathe the life of a polymath: Jack of all trades, Master of Learning. Always experimenting with a better version of myself. My curiosity prevented me from having a straight career, forcing me the Long Way Home. A journey that has taken me from anthropology, through beer and chocolate and politics, up to a world of digital technology and innovation. Only to end up founding a school for people who want to change things for the better. As the wind of transformation strikes continuously, I am now also the president of the first transformative leadership club – aiming to make Learning a Lifestyle. In the end I am simply a Serendipitist, finding value and happiness in things not sought for.
