As Head of Brand & Design at informed I oversaw all creative aspects and delivered across brand and product strategy. After 5 months I was promoted to join the senior leadership team. I led a team of 1-5: for product design, marketing design, copywriting, motion, research, the photo desk and external agencies. A crucial part of my work centred around empowering and mentoring others. My work included a brand redesign, app launch, product management, strategy, creative concepts, campaigns, growth & retention strategies and implementation, and much more.

Brand redesign & product
In my first 7 months and leading up to our official app launch in November 2022, I implemented a new brand vision, positioning and strategy. We worked with A Color Bright on a brand redesign and launch campaign and aligned our visual identity with our new strategy and audience. The new branding showed the perfect symbiosis of known editorial principles paired with a contemporary digital spin on news consumption. The redesign was applied across the entire business: app and web app, new brand guidelines and TOV, new social media and marketing templates and visuals…

Launch campaign
To communicate both our app launch and the brand redesign most effectively and to avoid any confusion, we opted for a 2-in-1 long-term launch campaign that would address both. This enabled us to promote the app to a myriad of new customers while educating and exciting our existing beta users about the new brand language.
The launch and redesign led to #1 in ‘Top Charts in Magazines &
Newspapers’ in the German App Store as well as a 4.3* score in the App Store.
