Daniel Goddemeyer is an independent research and design consultant who works with global brands, research institutions and start-ups to define new product applications for their emerging technologies.

Projects he has led have helped BBVA's Innovation Center to create a range of data driven services that were taken from initial research to successful market entry, enabled Audi to rethink the digital modalities around urban transportation and supported the Bloomberg Philanthropies to create more automated ways of detecting change in cities through data.

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

With his own research and his MFA class 'Urban Fictions' at the School of Visual Arts he explores the social implications of today's emerging technologies on our future 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 the Industrial Designer Society of America.

His work has been exhibited internationally such as 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.

He is an avid speaker at conferences and has recently spoken at Interaction18, FITC and TEDx among others.
