Le Caid design studio was founded in 2001 in Hamburg by Katja Pilz and Silke Sonnenberg.
In 2011 it evolved to the LE CAID DESIGN COLLECTIVE, revealing a new collaboration of the two creatives based in Germany and Switzerland, responsible for concept and design.

Lead UX/UI Designer in the branding team of Swisscom. Living in a country house with my partner and two cats. Rooftent nomad and outdoor enthusiast. My guiding principle – TRY & ERROR.

We both studied communication design at the Design Factory International in Hamburg and met at Razorfish, a digital agency, where we worked for clients such as Arte, Audi, Hypovereinsbank and RTL. In 2001 we decided to run our own design studio in Hamburg, which we kept going until 2011.

Since then, our paths have crossed again and again, be it privately or on various projects, where we have been able to put our more than twenty years of experience to the test.
