Peter Friedrich Stephan is a professor for Cognitive Design at the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne. He also runs a design class at the University of the Arts in Berlin within the master program „Leadership in Digital Communication“. 
As a studied designer and musician he was a pioneer in Multimedia Design in the early 90ties with projects for Apple, Burda, Bertelsmann, Telekom and Philip Morris. In 1994 he co-founded a program in Computational Design. In 1997 he became a professor and since 2001 he is a partner with the Institute of Electronic Business in Berlin.
His research interests focus on the relation of knowledge, design and strategy with projects in experimental and commercial contexts. Peter publishes, lectures and exhibits internationally, including books on „Events and E-Commerce“ (2000) and „Knowledge Media Design“ (2005). His early works on „Wissensdesign“ (1995) and „Cognitive Design“ (2005) led to cooperations with partners from science and technology studies (acatech – National Academy of Science and Engineering).
In 2013 a new research project will be launched in cooperation with the Humboldt University in Berlin, Institute of Internet and Society.
