Susanne Krebs was appointed Professor of Design at the Technical University in Deggendorf in 2017 and has been Managing Director of the Agency for Encounter Communication PHOCUS BRAND CONTACT GmbH & Co KG in Nuremberg since 2011. She is a member of the German Designer Club DDC and of bayern design.

Susanne Krebs has been working independently since 1997 and has accompanied international and medi-um-sized companies and organisations during this time. As Creative Director, she has accompanied Daimler AG's appearance at the IAA Commercial Vehicles on several occasions as well as international vehicle launches. She is currently developing brand images and holistic communication concepts for companies such as Rittal, Telekom and the city of Erlangen. Her design achievements have often been honored with prestigious design awards. At Deggendorf University she has been working with a team on projects in a 360° laboratory since 2017. There she tests different scenarios in VR and a 360° room.

Susanne Krebs has lived in Nuremberg since completing her degree in Design for Audiovisual Media and is committed to the cultural and creative scene. She also co-organizes events such as Creative Monday and PechaKucha Nights.

Her personal recipe for success is to be open to new ideas and have the sensitivity to perceive the familiar in a new way. To have the courage to consistently put things into practice and to engage intensively with other areas of thinking in order to identify trends and think ahead.

Her aim is to create hard-wearing and differentiating design solutions through depth in content, context and socio-culture.
