"As designers we give content a shape – almost always a nice one."

Julia Landsiedl started her design career with a Master’s in Law – as a copywriter in advertising and branding. She went on to study Product- and Processdesign in Vienna and Berlin and left Europe to work for design consultancy IDEO in Silicon Valley.

She returned to Vienna to open her own studio in 2009. Since then the studio has worked on a variety of cross-disciplinary design & innovation projects, both with clients and independently. Its main focus is three dimensional storytelling – developing and staging the stories, services and spaces that surround an object or a brand. She believes in a human-centered, socially responsible approach to design.

Julia Landsiedl was nominated Austrian Museum for Applied Arts/ Contemporary Art’s first designer in residence and won a recognition/outstanding artist award by the Austrian Ministry of Education, Arts and Culture in 2012.
