Stephen von Muenster

“I’m inspired by the convergence of technology and creativity – how technology is being used to create engaging commercial communications. Each day new ideas are emerging, and as a firm we are constantly evolving and updating to provide enabling capabilities for our clients. I find it exciting to be a critical part of a client’s journey, providing them with solutions so they can realise their vision. Oddly enough, outside work I’m passionate about all things vintage. So at work I’m living in the 22nd century, at home the 19th century!”
