DESIGN + COLOUR CONSULTING
I support global and local brands, retailers and manufacturers to confidently update their offering. My concepts will inspire you from product creation through to styling and promotion.
Feeling slightly overwhelmed? I develop spot-on trend stories relevant to your market. As a specialist for the design and lifestyle industries, I inform you of what will be important in the seasons to come.
CREATIVE DIRECTION + EDITING
I point you in the right direction with original mood boards, bespoke colour palettes, directional visuals, engaging narratives and editorial pieces connecting you with your audience.
WORKSHOPS + PANELS
Adequately sharing knowledge and constructive feedback make staff training and collaborations with me special. I am experienced in hosting and contributing to expert panels.
You can book me for an interview or a bespoke keynote talk on design, colour and trends. I also offer some of my expertise pro bono at Clubhouse, where I co-host the club TREND FORECASTING. Follow me @alinaschartner
INTERIOR DESIGN + HOME STAGING
For the last 14 years, my professional focus was on how people want to live and work. These days I mostly guide businesses, but sometimes I take on private commissions to create the right look and feel.
My biggest talent is, to make people see untapped potentials. As a mentor I empower others on their creative path; with (video) 1:1 sessions, CV, portfolio + online profile improvement and help with applications.
I usually support 3-4 design graduates a year for free on parts of their way to finding suitable work. Currently, I have no further capacity.
