    Lecturer: Markus Breitsamete, Team Lead Design | Women's Textile, Shoes & Accessories Private Labels


    Markus joined Zalando/zLabels as Lead Designer in 2012 and has experienced the company from start-up to international group.



      • From the founding of a private label in the company to the many changes over this long period of time in your own role as a creative person and in the business focus of the company, Mr. Breitsameter will use a few examples to give an insight into the changes in product creation.

      • In his additional role as Job Family Sponsor for designers in private labels, he will share with us what is expected of the role of design and how it is defined.

      • Of course, this should be a lively exchange and there is the opportunity to ask questions about everyday work and career opportunities within Zalando.
