A Creative Director for Data- and AI-driven Products.

Daniel Goddemeyer is a creative director who transforms data-driven technologies into new products, services and interfaces that appeal to humans.

He directly works with companies such as Google AI Research, the Volkswagen Future Center, Audi Data Strategy, Telefonica Innovation, the BBVA Innovation Center and startups such as Status and Citizen.

As an external consultant he is currently working with Google AI Research to set up a global workshop initiative that - through the lens of future local AI products - explores the importance of cultural context and it's associations when deploying global AI technologies.

He has led large scale projects that helped the BBVA Innovation Center to create a range of data-driven urban services, developed a range of privacy products for the future cars of Audi and helped the Volkswagen Future Center through a range of AI-driven, speculative product concepts to explore the implications of voice AI for the context of mobility.

Throughout his career he has worked for renown agencies such as Artefact, Antenna Design, ReD Associates, FutureFarmers and IDEO.

Next to his consulting activities, he teaches as adjunct faculty at New York City’s School of Visual Arts and Parsons School of Design where, together with students, he explores the social and ethical implications of ‘Everyday AI’ entering our lives.

For his work he has received several distinctions and awards from the Art Directors Club, the Red Dot Award, the German Design Price, Fast Company's Innovation by Design, the Kantar Information is Beautiful Award and Industrial Designers Society of America.

His work has been exhibited internationally such as at the Westbound Shanghai Architectural Biennial, Data in the 21st Century exhibition at V2 Rotterdam, Data Traces Riga and the Big Bang Data exhibition at London’s Somerset house.

He is an avid speaker and has recently spoken at conferences such as Interaction18, OFFF Barcelona, FITC Toronto and TEDx among others.
