About Me

I’m Moritz Grund, I work as a consultant, concept designer and author on a variety of unusual projects.

My way of working is characterized by my origin as a Media- and Productdesigner.
My work is set between sustainability and resource intelligence – business model development and decision-making – concept design and practical design theory.
My focus is on developing tools and methods for self-empowerment.
With my products, books, lectures, readings and consulting services, my ideas become tangible.

What I am passionate about:
– new concepts of sustainable and fair coexistence
– the design of tools for self-determination and self-empowerment
– the solution of fundamental problems of many
– my family and friends

What I am good at:
– critical-analytical view
– fast creative-associative thinking, brainstorming
– concept development and designmodels
– design and development of tools and methods
– lectures, inspiration and consulting

If you want to get started or unstuck, need advice or inspiration, feel free to contact me anytime.

ONEHUNDRED. An experiment on myself: A designer's reckoning with things.
Book | Notes and stories on possession and property

The book “ONEHUNDRED” is a collection of short texts along a seven-year-long experiment for the reduction of personal property. The collage from notes, observations, stories and thoughts, statements and ideas raises questions about the relationship with things of everyday life and outlines thereby a personal design term. Written in simple language, without foreign words and indistinct terms, like „art “, „beauty “or „prosperity “, this piece of autobiographic design criticism can be read easily.
In 2012 i was awarded with the Wilhelm Braun-Feldweg Prize for design critique.
