Johannes Mutter


I’m a 26-year-old product-service-system designer from Germany. Now studying the joined M.A. and M.Sc. Global Innovation Design at the Royal College of Art and the Imperial College in London, Beijing and Singapore. I create personal, seamless and relevant relationships between humans & technology. I believe A.I. & proactive design have the power to prevent the causes of our human made problems.

Before the RCA I studied Communication Design (BA) at the Design Academy Eindhoven and the University of Applied Sciences Augsburg, where I graduated magna cum laude in 2014. In 2012 I co-founded the startup Linetz, where I was responsible for design, front‐end develop­ment and strategy. I have a great passion for meaningful design, street photo­graphy and technology.
