Matthias Karg is one of the three co-founders and the CPO at Angle. As the design expert in the team, he is in charge of deciding and designing what you see when you open your Angle app — for example our recent slight brand refresh.

As the communications person at Angle, I (Sarah, hi 👋) sat down with our founders and team members to find out a bit more about what makes them tick. One conversation that was truly surprising, was the one I had with Valerius Huonder, our co-founder and CTO at Angle.

In a world where everything and everyone is expected to be perfect, many users are setting high standards for themselves when it comes to hosting a live online conversation. And high quality standards are great, of course. But not every conversation needs to be an extensively prepared TED Talk. Sometimes the real magic happens ✨ when a group of people is…
