Martin started his career in 2006 as co-founder of the innovation start-up Break-Through Ventures in Basel. He worked with global brands like Carlsberg, Arla Foods and Mammut. Together with the team, he invented new products for various industries (e.g. beverages, cheeses, mountaineering backpacks). With the acquired experience, he moved to San Francisco in 2008, where he worked for the well known agencies Ammunition Group and Frog Design. During the four years in the Bay Area, he had the privilege to develop iconic products for leading brands in the consumer electronics industry. After his return to Switzerland, he designed the award winning element portable grill for Fuego and pursued his work with Ammunition Group.
Today, Martin is living in Lausanne and works as Lead Designer at Logitech since 2014. His tasks cover market analysis, concept generation and product development with a focus on consumer needs.
To refresh the mind, Martin spends as much time as possible in nature – Especially in the mountains, where he follows his passion for mountain biking. Being active in the great outdoors is his source of inspiration.
