Together with friends, I am founding a new design studio. We're called Village One and we’re a worker-owned cooperative, aiming to re-define creative work as a remote, async company.

Previous participants of the workshop seemed to like it:
“As I am not a native English speaker, I often feel anxious about my written language. However, from this course, I gained the confidence to be more fearless. (…) Not only did I improve my writing skills, but also speaking, presenting, discussing, and listening.”
“I especially appreciated the time, precision, and patience from Sonja and Christoph, with which they helped us analyzing and finalizing our writing.”
“Their attention to detail and passion for language, text, and design was of great value for our work during the course.”
“The workshop made me realize that writing is a serious craft, and I felt more encouraged to take my writings seriously.”
