neomind

We are neomind, a strategical design studio based in Munich, Germany. We believe that design can make a difference in the lives of people. Thats why we reinvent and transform the objects and services that surround us in our day to day lives. Our products combine aesthetics, function and innovation with a strong and holistic focus on the user. Therefore we support our clients throughout the entire product development process, from initial research and ideation all the way to launching a sophisticated design.

neomind not only developed the first Ideenzug mock up - the IdeenzugRegio - but also the IdeenzugCity. Thanks to our close collaboration together with DB, Passengers, Stakeholders and a wide variety of partners we had the chance to shape the whole process of development and to create and design all twelve modules. By applying design thinking methods we made research, analyzed and defined the problems that needed to be solved, followed a process of ideation and testing together with passengers and finally designed and managed the realization together with our partners from a wide range of industries.
