Who’s behind this
Welcome Beyond was founded by two Berlin-based brothers who’ve spent their lives studying and working around the globe. In addition to a lot of genes, they share a fundamental insight about travel – that where you stay is as vital to the experience as what you see and do.
Oliver Laugsch has been a designer and art director with agencies in the US, France, Germany, Switzerland and the UK, creating the only known connection between clients such as Deutsche Bank and the Chemical Brothers. Oliver channeled his lifelong love of design and architecture into formal studies at the Art Center College of Design.
Chris Laugsch worked in finance for a German multinational, ultimately taking on a management role with its Brazilian subsidiary. He was educated at the European Business School in London and Santiago de Chile. Chris alternates between German and English with his older brother – and throws in some Spanish or Portuguese to keep it interesting.
