WILDDESIGN – News from the Medical Design Hub Munich

At the end of 2015 we decided to commemorate twenty-five years of successful career by opening the new headquarters in Munich. Together with our partners BYTEC Medizintechnik with twenty-three years of experience in product development, quality management and CE/FDA – KnowHow we have created a medical design hub at the heart of the vibrant city of Munich, known for medical technology innovation and design. (read our initial blogpost from 2015). The headquarter was presented in November 2015 at the Medica/Compamed fair and has continued to thrive.

Driven and inspired by cooperation and influence from the strongest international design companies that have their headquarters in Munich, our team has a constant possibility of growth and improvement keeping up with the newest development in the field of medical technology. The networking with the fast-developing KI, ADM and Munich’s medical and biotechnology research scene, notwithstanding many creative and successful StartUps, has allowed for our customers to profit from the developments in the field to which we pay close attention.

With our youngest headquarters’ 3rd anniversary approaching we are happy to share that the choice of Munich, together with our carefully selected team is a success.

However, we don`t stop here, we are steadily advancing.

The Structure and the team

WILDDESIGN gathers a crowd of creatives with diverse backgrounds. Our team is international, and we stand for a flat-hierarchy working climate. Team spirit is one of the features we value the most, besides personality of the team members that has to fit the climate we want to achieve and that is a climate of development, improvement, open communication among each other and with our clients, and creativity.

Our team is comprised of five employees that all complement each other through their personal competences and their professional focus. However, we all have background in Product Design and a minimum of two years working experience in the Medical Technology niche. 20 years of experience in industrial design, design refinement and visualizing techniques, media design, 2D and 3D modeling, working models` production and package production, UX design and GUI design, we have it all among the members of our tiny yet superb team.

We are happy to always have at least two interns at a time around us. Our team offers the opportunity for the young and developing minds to gather the valuable experience much needed in this line of work. Our interns come with very diverse skills, interests and from all over the globe. We have housed students from Italy, Spain, Canada, Sweden, Austria etc. They have all brought their own experiences and made our job even more interesting and inspiring. However, they have one thing in common, education in the field of industrial, UX or communication design.

We are particularly proud that we can offer our interns the opportunity to work on their own forward-looking projects, which they pursue from start to finish during their internship. We offer them the opportunity to apply their acquired knowledge and skills within a professional framework, to refine these skills and to apply the studied WILDDESIGN design process to their own projects.

The future

With much work achieved and a compact and strong team we are looking forward to the new projects that we are either working on or have mapped out. We continue to be on a look-out for people that will identify with our core-values, who live for creativity and design and who are ready to enjoy the time in our close-knit and friendly team. The story of the Munich headquarters goes on.
