my name is Dea Dantas Vögler.

I work with companies and organisations to create tangible innovation. With a post graduation from the HPI School of Design Thinking, roots in Visual Design and rich work experience in both fields, I generate ideas for services and processes.

Most importantly I help bring them to life. I am ready to dive into every subject - but projects around healthcare innovation, brand building and gender related topics attract me the most.

E-Commerce Comparison Platform

Identify and create value for the user in 5 days.
Design Sprint

Time does not stand still, neither does the internet. After 8 successful years in business my client identified the need for a new and clearer value proposition, for b2c users as well as their b2b partners. Hence we conducted two 5 day Design Sprints. First of all we interviewed users to discover their most pressing unmet needs, then we built a prototype we as a possible answer to that need. At the end of week 1 we tested it. The results of both sprints were incredible and proved right. Both, the update to the b2b as well as the b2c platform are currently being implemented. The design sprint weeks were also used internally as a starting point to increase the level of collaboration across different teams within the company. For this task I used the Google Design Sprint as a basic methodology, with certain adjustments to my clients’ needs.

Optimizing nurse workflows in South Africa
SMS based service

How to improved the workflow of healthcare providers in the public sector where there is little money and even less time to adapt to change? Building on existing resources and behaviours we designed SUMMO, an SMS based communication service for nurses working in Mobile Clinics in rural areas of South Africa. The idea for the service was born out in a co creation workshop with the nurses and my team from the HPI School of Design Thinking.

5 people - 5 weeks - 1 protoype

In-house innovation sprint


How to get a chemical and pharmaceutical company into acting more user centred and to create tangilbe innovations in a short time span? You take five people, with five different backgrounds form five countries and give them five weeks and one technology, one Design Thinking coach and a support in prototype building. I had the pleasure to lead this team through this experience, introduce them new ways of thinking and working and help build prototypes. These prototypes were presented to a large audience in the company. The astonishment about what could be done in such a short period of time was huge.

Social gender pitfalls awareness campaign
Web Quiz
What are the life choices that still lead to financial dependencies of women in Germany ? In colaboration with the German Trade Union (DGB) and the German Ministry of Family Affairs I have crafted a web quizin order to raise awareness for life’s potential pitfalls of financial dependencies. The old campaigns impact was decreasing which is why we came up with a web based concept. I designed a playful interface which was using gamification elements such as rewarding badges for the different types of potential girls.
