Jonas Voigt (b. 1992, Germany) believes that the ways design inquiry tackles wicked problems helps to shape relationships between humans, non-humans, technologies and ecologies. It is a commitment that underpins Jonas's work as a freelance design strategist, researcher, and as educator. This obligation has been shaped by transdisciplinary experiences and collaborations made across institutions in Germany and North America.
Jonas currently practices and implements design strategy and research in venture building and digital transformation at Etribes in Hamburg, Germany.
He is an alumnus of the Mellon Sawyer Seminar on Imaginative Mobilities and of the Design Realities Studio at The New School in New York. Jonas taught in Integrated Design, Strategic Design and Management at Parsons School for Design Strategies, currently lectures at Design Dessau, and at HfG Schwäbisch Gmünd. Further, he is involved in founding Grey Noise Studio and The Complicity.
Jonas holds an MFA in Transdisciplinary Design from Parsons School of Design (USA), a BA in Communication Design from Hochschule für Gestaltung in Schwäbisch Gmünd (Germany), and studied Sustainable Design Strategies at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver (Canada).
He is a member of the German Society for Design Theory and Research (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Designtheorie und -forschung, DGTF) since 2021.
Jonas’s work has been featured, exhibited and awarded internationally. Notable features include publications in Form, Core77, WIRED and BBC Future. Exhibitions at the Vitra Design Museum, Walker Art Center, Vienna Biennale, and XXII Triennale di Milano.
Permanent collections include The New School Libraries & Archives, Design Museum Holon and Philadelphia Museum of Art.
