Daniel Goddemeyer is an interdisciplinary researcher and designer who explores our relationships with technology through research, experiments and product applications.

He is the founder of OFFC, a New York City based research and design studio, that works with global brands, research institutions and start-ups to create future product applications for today’s emerging technologies.

In his recent work with OFFC, or as an independent consultant, he has led large scale strategic innovation projects that helped BBVA to create a range of data driven services that were taken from initial research to successful market entry.

Among others he has further worked with Audi to rethink the digital modalities around urban transportation and enabled the Bloomberg philanthropies to create more automated ways of detecting future change in cities.

In his own research and with his MFA class at the School of Visual Arts he explores how the increasing proliferation of these technologies in our future lives will transform our everyday interactions.

Throughout his career, he has taken a key or leading role on a wide variety of projects for agencies such as Antenna Design, Future Farmers, ReD Associates and IDEO.

For his work he has received several distinctions and awards from the Art Directors Club, the Red Dot Award, the German Design Price, the Kantar Information is Beautiful award and the Industrial Designer Society of America.

His work has been exhibited internationally at the Westbound Shanghai Architecture Biennial, Data in the 21st century exhibition at V2 Rotterdam, Data Traces Riga and the Big Bang Data exhibition at London’s Somerset house among others.
