In his talk he will share his experience with HPI students and alumni in how to make a new - or established - brand successful. With DesignStudio Paul has created and shaped brands for the most innovative and exciting companies in the world. Among them are Airbnb, Deliveroo, Twitter, UEFA and the Premier League.

DesignStudio is based in London, New York, San Francisco and Sydney. In 2009 Paul co-founded the agency alongside business partner and fellow designer Ben Wright. Their vision was to work closely with ambitious leaders to make a Meaningful Difference to the world’s most exciting brands. As a leading brand expert, Paul has worked closely alongside company CEOs such as Brian Chesky (Airbnb), Will Shu (Deliveroo), Johannes Reck (GetYourGuide) to create business change through the implementation of brand. Paul has also spoken at major international design events and organisations in North America, China, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Europe.
