Anke Schumann, Senior Graphic Designer in our Silicon Valley office, has been working at Simon-Kucher & Partners for well over a decade. Discover cats, dogs, cookies and more, as we spend the day with her in sunny California!


My day starts by taking our dog out for a quick run. I enjoy the quiet time and fresh morning air before the day begins.

I wake my son up, and we get breakfast ready. I appreciate the days working from home as I can spend time with my son before he goes to school.



At this time, I usually go through my inbox and check-in with colleagues on projects, and assignments. I might chat with the events team on preparing for upcoming webinars and forums.



I meet with the graphics team where we discuss our project schedule and assigned incoming work.

Today the graphics team held our quarterly Graphics outing where we decorated cookies.

I usually do some stretches around lunch time. Sometimes ‘Pickles’ joins me.



My work day finishes. I drive my son to after school activities, and take the dog out for a walk or run. We recently got a ping pong table, which has become our family’s favorite game.

We eat dinner, talk about our day, and relax watching TV.

A bit later I head to bed and do some reading. I’m currently reading ‘Conversations with friends’ by Sally Rooney.
