“It is considered impolite to judge a person from their outward appearance, but we do it anyway. That first impression and anything that can be taken in at first glance help us to decide what is important – when we are out on the street, in the supermarket or leafing through a magazine. I see the focus of my work as designing businesses and brands so that they stand out from the crowd.”
Klaus Asemann, managing partner at Embassy, is a design expert with international project and management experience. His main focus has been on developing car brands. He specialises in broad-based corporate design systems and, when carrying out consultancy work with clients, takes a long-term view of their prospects.
Since 2013 Klaus Asemann is a lecturer at the Hochschule Harz – University of Applied Sciences for the M.A. “Tourism and Destination Development”.
