Hartmut Esslinger

Growing up in a Black Forest village, Hartmut Esslinger became one of the world's most influential industrial designers. In a rural setting, he founded frog design, the first global design agency in 1969, with 14 studios on all continents today.

He helped brands such as SONY, LOUIS VUITTON, SAP and APPLE - the collaboration with Steve Jobs has become legend - to global success. His vision is to advance the world of complex hardware and software by innovative design for humans - both functional and emotionally appealing.
