About us

We are Paperlux Design Studio. German and international brands confide in us as their partner for a wide range of design services since 2006. We bring corporate design, brand identity, product and packaging creation to fruition on a shared journey with you, our client. We consult, design and craft in our vocation as intuitive curators, open-minded travelers and visionaries of instinctive awareness.

P.S.: We are frequently asked what the word “Paper” has to do with our name. It’s the material for which, in our very beginning, we developed a paper etching method. Even though nowadays we use many different materials and methods for our projects, our love and connection to paper remains. And we believe: what you carry in your heart, can also be carried in your name.

Workshops

Brand Check-Up

We like to affectionately refer to our check-up as a wellness exam. It helps determine the brand's overall health. It is an objective evaluation from an external point of view, which can provide a clear diagnosis when it comes to defining the brand presence and awareness. Is the brand healthy enough to meet market requirements and trends? What about the brand DNA; can it undergo change without losing its identity?

Customer Journeys*

At which touchpoints do customers and clients come into contact with a brand? How does it make them feel and what experience do they associate with it? Are there moments when added value or more entrepreneurial potential can be created and identified? This is the point at which opportunities for an improved and sustainable customer experience are generated.

Core Positioning

When a brand meets emotional needs and actual requirements with great precision, this strengthens and promotes significant and sustainable success. The Core Positioning workshop methodically examines a brand and its products, identifies the brand core and consequently develops and fine-tunes the value proposition.

Persona Development

Dealing with personalities and their development helps to acquire a user-centered perspective for developing products and services. This leads to better decision-making in the interest of users/customers during the design process.

Brand Strategy

This is certainly not "one size fits all". We work with you to define and prioritize goals based on company and market requirements. Targeted and tailored modules are developed for those areas in which potential or the need for action is particularly strong.

Design Sprint Project

In this four to five-day project workshop, a specific question or a rough idea for a product or service is worked on in order to obtain real feedback and recommendations for action. To achieve this, it is necessary to complete the five phases of the Design Sprint and test and validate the results with real users. Pleasant plus points and desirable side effects: Improvement of team spirit, risk minimization, cost reduction and much more.

Purpose Design*

Why do any of us actually do what we do? Purpose Design examines the heart of a company and identifies its drive, rhythm and objectives. Defining a strong and common purpose is far more than just an abstract statement. It has become a must-have for companies and forms the basis for decisions, measures and actions.

Design Sprint Training*

A two-day training with concrete tools and techniques to get to know or deepen the skills needed to create your own design sprints. This training is a power parcourse with a fun factor. It begins with a product idea, which is further developed into a hi-fi prototype and tested by users. Methods like empathy mapping, sketching, prototyping and customer interviews are part of the demanding agenda.

* For these formats we also offer methodical trainings . They are hosted and carried out by Soraya Kuehne and Laura Landschek.
