mass is a communication design group in flux. We define, shape, build, and invent. Brands, digital products, experiences, and ventures.
(stephan) Valter is the principal of mass. Trained at the multi-disciplinary State Academy of Art and Design in Stuttgart, Germany, he opened his own design practice in New York. The german-french designer has created brand identities, packaging and consumer experiences for companies like Exxon, Coca-Cola, LVMH, and Diageo, and pioneered interactive changing rooms for 7 For all Mankind.
Valter's thinking is interdisciplinary and rooted in his mutations into new areas: animation and video, furniture and exhibition design, user interface and digital product design. He is the co-creator of SMRxT, an Internet-of-Things invention and technology startup.
With SMRxT, a smart packaging system for healthcare, Valter invented the remote tracking of consumption, a new data category with real-time metrics, analytics, and infinite marketing potential.
What we do: identity, packaging, smart retail, apps, backend, frontend, pill bottles, icons, furniture, night life products, animation, event design, brand language, UX, CX, BX, advertising, video.
