INNCH | Über uns

The INNCH manage­ment team com­bi­nes psy­cho­logy and mar­ket rese­arch with deve­lo­p­ment, crea­ti­vity and design:

Monika Heimann is a spe­cia­list in crea­tion, inter­ac­tive media pro­ducts and the con­cep­tion and imple­men­ta­tion of crea­tive work­shops. She ori­gi­nally comes from the field of con­cep­tual art and in the course of her career as Art Direc­tor Inter­ac­tive she has worked for com­pa­nies such as Micro­soft, VW, ZDF, IBM, Schott, Sie­mens, Super RTL, Saturn and many more and, among others, won the Ani­mago Award in Can­nes with her team.

Michael Schütz is a spe­cia­list in cul­tu­ral, depth, Gestalt and cogni­tive psy­cho­logy and qua­li­ta­tive-psy­cho­lo­gi­cal mar­ket and media rese­arch. For many years, he was respon­si­ble in mana­ging posi­ti­ons at the Colo­gne-based Rhein­gold Insti­tute for cli­ents such as Uni­le­ver, Voda­fone, AOL and various media clients.

After 12 years of col­la­bo­ra­tion, we have con­cep­tually mer­ged our ways of see­ing and working and deve­lo­ped them into a stra­te­gic and con­su­mer-cen­tric crea­tive con­cept (➔ Insight­Art). The added value for you: You receive com­pe­tence and deca­des of prac­tice in rese­arch, pro­duct deve­lo­p­ment and crea­tion from a sin­gle source. As a small team, we can sup­port you per­so­nally and par­ti­cu­larly flexibly.
