Communication Design
for the Technosphere1

I provide communication strategy and design, with a focus on infrastructure and technology. My advice is informed by a decade of experience as Creative Director for high profile design teams across the industries of fashion, mobility, and tech. I’ve been an Assistant Professor for Visual Methods at the Institute for Music and Media. At the dawn of 2020, I co-founded a planetary research and design practice called Neo-Metabolism, which is my primary occupation today. Through Neo-Metabolism, my personal clients can access additional expertise on demand, including narrative development, graphic design, and industrial design.

Client Review

“I can hardly put into words how I feel after reading it: this document is a piece of art. It's so cohesive. I'm able to see and feel the identity and vision that matches (brand name’s) soul. I love its humanity and the circular communication you've created as well.”

footnote 1

“The technosphere, the interlinked set of communication, transportation, bureaucratic and other systems that act to metabolize fossil fuels and other energy resources, is considered to be an emerging global paradigm, with similarities to the lithosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere. The technosphere is of global extent, exhibits large-scale appropriation of mass and energy resources, shows a tendency to co-opt for its own use information produced by the environment, and is autonomous. Unlike the older paradigms, the technosphere has not yet evolved the ability to recycle its own waste stream. Unless or until it does so, its status as a paradigm remains provisional. Humans are ‘parts’ of the technosphere – subcomponents essential for system function. Viewed from the inside by its human parts, the technosphere is perceived as a derived and controlled construct. Viewed from outside as a geological phenomenon, the technosphere appears as a quasi-autonomous system whose dynamics constrains the behavior of its human parts. A geological perspective on technology suggests why strategies to limit environmental damage that consider only the needs of people are likely to fail without parallel consideration of the requirements of technology, especially its need for an abundant supply of energy.”
