If you wonder where a real digital native started: Chances are high the answer is the Commodore 64. A 320 x 200 pixel screen, 16 colors, 8-bit CPU. One of the so-called DTP programs was Printfox and this is where my digital journey started. It was 1986, I was ten years old and highly addicted to the digital world's blessing of accurate creation and limitless reproduction. The Commodore Amiga followed and I started working on projects like "demos" and games after school.
Christian is looking back at 20 years of hands-on experience in shaping digital experiences and digital brands. His munich-based design agency schoene neue kinder (that's german for "brave new kids") is helping brands to translate strategies into living digital experiences, since over a decade, long before Customer Engagement and the Digital Transformation became megatrends. While the world is talking about the Consumerization of B2B, Flaccus loves to talk about the Humanization of B2B Communication and plausible stories.
That‘s why he also acts as a Brand Advisor for the Hammer Team.
Prior to that – in 1997, a time before Google – he co-founded Hybris, a global leader in E-Commerce and Customer Engagement, and developed and managed the brand and it‘s internationalization and growth until the acquisiton by SAP for more than 1B Euro. Today – 4 years later – the brand is a key brand for the SAP front-office strategy and has significantly influenced the SAP brand in a kind of reverse takeover.
Christian, studied Visual Communications in Krefeld and Munich and spent most of his 90‘s youth on digital projects, pioneering today‘s connected world.
Looking back at almost 30 years of digital work and 20 years of entrepreneurship and startup culture I am quite thankful for all the things I've learned. You can hire me for design, brand, cultural system projects, for talks and lectures. But I also enjoy a good chat about art, music, movies and cube puzzles.
