After earning a degree in graphic design, Steffen started his career in advertising at BBDO, where he quickly found himself unable to reconcile the industry’s distinct separation of the various creative disciplines. As a result, he started to mix design, strategy, technology and media in order to create new ideas.

After over three years at BBDO, he quit and struck out on his own as a freelance creative consultant. He worked for various agencies in Europe and Asia before he joined SinnerSchrader, where he was in charge of building up their innovation unit.

Today Steffen is a Managing Partner at RVOLVE, a Digital Brand Consultancy in Berlin, where he operates at the intersection of business strategy and emerging technologies to develop new solutions for brands in the digital world.
