Many years of collaboration between the designers Christoph Runge and Prof. Dr. Norbert Hammer lead to the foundation of the hammer.runge design company in 1998 with offices in Neuss and Essen, Germany. The main fields of assignment are product, interface and Web design. The two founders deal with all designs “in person”; this guarantees that clients benefit from competent consultancy, saving them time. We understand design as the creative synthesis between technical feasibility, user-friendly ergonomics, market-focused economics and target group oriented aesthetics. For us, design is not product cosmetics but a continuous development process of close cooperation with our client. With a strong commitment to design we lead projects to results that inspire clients. hammer.runge is a member of the VDID.
