At designaffairs the “We-feeling” is very important. We experience this every day when we cook together in our open kitchen area, barbecue on our rooftop terrace or when we chill-out at the campus’ pool.

Together with our designers, ergonomists, engineers and strategists, you will create innovative and ambitious designs for both our national and international clients coming from various industries, such as transportation, medical technology, consumer electronics, building technology, household appliances and software.

Diverse projects are awaiting you: from complex software products over hardware to innovative operation concepts via multi touch and gesture. The required technologies for this are available for you in our interface lab and serve you and your colleagues as a creative playground.
