Who We Are

About Design with A Story

“Design with a Story” is a platform created by Begüm Tomruk and Mirko Goetzen, two highly skilled product designers with a global background and experiences in companies like Sony, Nokia, Ziba Design, Grundig and Grohe.

"We have been working in the industrial design industry for several years and have many products in the market. After all that experience, we are convinced that products with a story are more likely to create an emotional connection with the customer. There are many good designers out there. But unfortunately there are not many products with good stories. We have created the platform to tell you our stories."

"We will continue to upload new stories on a regular basis. Enjoy and get inspired!"
