Martin Wezowski

wezowski Martin have been loving and living design and tech his whole career. He moved across a broad range of design disciplines from visual, interaction, usability, service to system design and to be leading design as a strategic endeavor. Right now he is on the mission to map, build and inspire a future we want to live in, as Chief Designer for SAP’s global Innovation Center Networks. For Martin diversity is not an option it is a prerequisite in innovation and design success.

Martin frequently shares his passion for the future of technology and design as speaker, panelist and guest lecturer. Martin builds on his international adventures stretching from Poland, Sweden, China to Germany and across companies like SAP, Sony and Huawei, working with consumer electronics, media services and business software. There are probably very few Sci-Fi movies he have not yet seen, there are millions of forests he would love to mountain bike in and miles of coral reefs to dive on. Ask him about anything of the above and you will catch a spark in my eyes and possibly an interesting conversation.

Martin drives user experience enabling technologies as a tool for beauty and simplicity for people at work. User experience is the language that bridges technology and life with clear intentions. Martin believes that a diverse and curiosity driven culture is key to success, especially in large corporations. Therefore, he also invests time in a creative culture change program at SAP “The Design Whizzes”. As Martin would put it: “Creative culture is the fuel, design is the vehicle, innovation is the journey. What is means to be a designer is transforming faster than before, from classic styling of the superficial to system design of everything, including social and political systems, deeply rooted in a space of challenges and promises between cutting edge tech and humanism. In an exponential, digital change, we design a relationship, a behavior, that the product will follow. This exponential change is our most important design brief and the stakes are high, It is just too important to be left only to designers. I believe that everything can and should be given a purpose through innovation and design, including the innovation systems themselves”
