I'm lisa marleen (she/her), multi-disciplinary designer, art director, and digital creative

Some alt text

My experience derives from working over 8 years in the field of creative technologies, interactive exhibitions, and digital applications.

From 2016 to 2023 I was part of the digital agency Demodern, in early 2023 I joined the creative agency Elastique. as a Senior Art Director and the ADC Germany. In various teaching assignments, including at the TH Köln as part of the KITeGG research project, I deal with the question of how AI models can be purposefully integrated into the design process.

As, an artistic duo together with Laura Juliane we conduct workshops, teaching designers how to appropriate new technologies in the development stage, to anticipate disruptive changes to the design industry proactively. Our joint approach is using speculative design to reflect on possible future scenarios following disruptive technological advancements.
