Johannes Mutter

I build my ideas,

I’m a design-engineer from Germany. I’m building »tools for thought«. Previously I co-founded the startup Augmented Thinking and graduated from the joined M.A. and M.Sc. Global Innovation Design at the Royal College of Art and Imperial College in London.

My focus is on collective intelligence, sustainable urbanism, and tools for thought. Before the RCA I studied Communication Design (BA) at the Design Academy Eindhoven and the University of Applied Sciences Augsburg. I lived and worked in London, Beijing, Singapore, Bangkok, Germany, and Japan.
