I’m Nele, a multidisciplinary designer and storyteller with more than ten years’ experience, living in Berlin. 

I use my strategic design thinking in high-profile projects involving brand experiences, informative spaces and events. 

My work ranges from exhibitions seen by tens of thousands of visitors to projects with virtually no budget that require inventiveness to create something out of very limited resources. 

My self-initiated installations have been shown in solo and group exhibitions in The Netherlands, UK, Germany and Spain.

Nele Vos has already worked for us many times. In the METABOX project Nele has once again demonstrated her unique skills both as a strategic thinker and as a very experienced but innovative designer.

– Thomas Sevcik, Arthesia AG



Mrs. Vos designed our application for the Real Estate Manager Award and I am sure, that the extraordinary presentation of our SMARTments as a pop-up book, was one of the reasons for our win.

Narrative Environments responds to the growing need for multidisciplinary collaboration and critical, socially–engaged design. It addresses the demand for meaningful visitor experiences in cultural, commercial and community environments.

This encompasses heritage sites, museums, retail, travel and leisure destinations, urban public spaces, libraries, health and educational environments.

Increasingly, organisations want to communicate their stories through the physical environment. They may need to inform their communities; overcome social divides; develop their reputation; and increase visitor numbers or attract new audiences.

Narrative environments constitute a core part of “the global experience economy”. This addresses the desire for transformational encounters, providing opportunities for learning, discovery, social interaction and cohesion as well as the purchase of products and services.
