Hamsa Co-founder & APAC CEO, Apple, Amex & Visa
Rolf is the best designer I’ve worked with and I've worked with many. Having formerly run Gracenote, led executive positions at MTV overseeing marketing for online, and at SonicNet, the web's premiere music destination, i can tell you that Rolf was at the top. Easy to work with, creative, great listener, flexible, and ultimately delivers the goods. Not sure what else to say aside from the fact that i'd hire him back if i could.

Rolf quickly brought leadership and direction to design throughout everything Sun Basket; the entire User Experience, Packaging, Marketing, the Recipe Books… He seeks truth and does not let any ego stand in the way from doing a job well. I learned a tremendous amount about design and thoughtfulness from Rolf. I feel so lucky to have worked with him for three years and cannot recommend him strongly enough!

Founding Director, Media & Emerging Technology Lab - University of North Carolina School of the Arts
Rolf is an extraordinary designer and business partner. In over 25 years of working with designers, I would say he is the best I've worked with. Not only is he extremely talented in his craft, but he understands how to achieve effective business results through the use of them. He is a blast to work with, and became a critical member of the team while we sorted through strategy, not just when we got to the design phase.

Full of ideas, listens to feedback and so incredibly easy-going...amazing musician to boot...
VP of Product & Technology GigaOM, TuneUp Media Founder
Rolf can wear more than one hat, which is super valuable in a start up company. He is able to take a brief conversation, create comps, partner with the client and iterate on the design until they are satisfied and ready to move forward. He manages difficult clients very well and gets them to a place where they get their needs met. He also partners well with the tech side of the stack… I loved working with Rolf!

Rolf is a dream designer. He is not only a creative and skilled practitioner but is also a thoughtful and business minded designer.
