Hello, I’m Felix.

Felix C. Marschner

As a human-centered designer, I want to help companies to create products and experiences that matter to people.

I am experienced in uncovering user insights and translating them into meaningful concepts. By designing and prototyping specifically for user experiences from early on, I challenge common views and help humanizing technology.

I graduated from Delft University of Technology in cooperation with Philips Consumer Lifestyle in the field of design for subjective well-being in consumer products.
