TESTIMONIALS

We are very much satisfied with all the productive sessions conducted, especially with working with startups in a Domain group: E-commerce & Experience, which reached the highest NPS score from startups. Also we got a bunch of positive reviews from startups. What can I highlight more about Maria: great personality, responsive, accountable, professional!

One of a kind facilitation from Maria! Trust Gutt in delivering value by changing your perspective in designing solutions with your client from the different problems.

Roy Ahawo, Innovation Officer - Kenya Red Cross - Nairobi


đź‘‹ Hi, I'm Maria, I work with brands from all sizes and ages. I have 10 years of experience as a freelance designer in physical and digital products and spaces, working with startups, startupper myself, and ultimately as consultant at a Big 4. The reason why I left the corporate world started ggutt and Otherdots is because I realised the traditional model no longer works in today's age. We need more meaningful, purposeful and enduring work that makes a difference.
