Digital. Communication. Design.

 

#DigitalHeroine.

I am Brigitte Kobi and all about (digital) communication, social media and design. At the moment I work as a Senior Manager for an international consulting company, leading a large digitalisation project.

Style, design, digitalisation and communication are most definitely my passion. To me a great company is one that offers well-designed products.

I share my knowledge and ideas on style and (graphic) design on my Blog.

Given my degree in philosophy and communication science as well as experience in IT and management my skillset is quite unusual.

Thanks.

Although I have some know-how in web programming it would have been very difficult if not impossible to code some of the features built in this site without real professional help.

I'd like to thank Daniel Haug from WorldService who always gives me technical support in order to realize the fancy ideas I keep coming up with.
