I'm Richard Horvath and I'm good at wearing multiple hats. 🤠 Here are four quick things about me and my work. 

Richard Horvath

Collaborative and innovative design professional with over five years of experience in agency, in-house, and freelance design environments. Skilled project manager, able to tackle complex objectives with adaptable problem-solving skills and results-driven design thinking. As I hobby chef, I bring positivity to the plate and season it with a good pinch of humor to tickle your taste buds.

🎓 I started out in advertisements and worked with leading brands like GE, NN Group, Lufthansa straight out of college. I hated the disconnection between the end-user and the brand. I moved in-house, learned about consumer behavior, psychology, User Experience, and Product Design. Here I am today.

🧢 I geek out on technology and I love everything about the web and I believe in a transparent and human-centered future. Technology alone can't change the world, but we who design it can steer it and this comes with great responsibility. Understanding the world beyond (and through) design is my caffeine.

⛑ I moved to Berlin three years ago, when my eyes opened to the inhuman treatment of refugees and the deeply rooted corruption in my homeland, Hungary. That's not what I stand for. I am an extrovert and seek pleasure in doing good and fun things.

🎩 I listen to people and help them achieve their tasks. I like to challenge my views, therefore I only follow:
"those I love, those I admire, and those I hate." - Helmut Newton
