shiseïs

Inhaber ( Nicole Schroer )

Offen und neugierig auf alles, dabei entwaffnend ehrlich und selbstkritisch, ob es nicht noch einen Tick schöner und besser geht. Es ist ein Vergnügen, mit Sebastian zusammenzuarbeiten.
Kein überflüssiges Fach-Kauderwelsch, dafür unangestrengter Austausch und ein sehr aufmerksames Ohr für Zwischentöne, um die eine Lösung zu finden, die eben nicht auf der Hand liegt und 08/15 ist.
