tiefdunklesweiss - the Brand.

herausfordernd. unbequem. anders.

With all his passion for tolerance and diversity and driven by his strong conviction that real answers and solutions are never black or white only, Andreas Hartmann found his motivation to develop a new consultancy and professional services brand.

tiefdunklesweiss aims for multidisciplinarity and complementarity and measures its own success against a scale of relevance and objectivity.

The brand name - tiefdunklesweiss - will create curiosity and creativity, contains refreshing contrariness, stimulate thinking and ask for your personal interpretation.

Self-image and Commitment.

Escaping your cognitive Prison.

„„Think outside the box!“. Effective approach to real creativity, or just a paradox predetermined to failure?

Whoever is searching for new ideas, creative solutions or real innovation might soon recognize: I’m reaching my own personal limitations, seems there is no way to think outside my box.

It is far more effective to utilize the experiences and background of other - the “Other’s Boxes” principle.

tiefdunklesweiss believes in the values of collective creativity and innovation. As your consultant and partner we accompany you and your team on a journey towards new solutions and successes.

Our brand claim is herausfordernd.unbequem.anders.

This is what we offer to be for you:
Your challenging, sometimes uncomfortable, but always different partner.
