Cars are rapidly evolving from a pure medium
of transportation into a dynamic space of entertainment, recreation and transportation. This also changes how we interact with it!
In my current position at Spiegel Institut,
I consult the AUDI AG in their efforts to define the in-car interaction of tomorrow. My primary focus lies on the creation of personalized
user-experiences. Together with my teammates
I iteratively create and develop interaction concepts, UI-prototypes and concept videos. Hereby it is essential to mediate demands of users, stakeholders and a multidisciplinary team. Yes, this also involves a lot of testing. The cool thing about it? - we have to test while driving ;-).
Everything else is confidential.
Little Lot is a New Zealand startup that has a created an app that is present on platforms such as iOS, Android, OSX and the Windows OS. The app essentially transforms advertising dollars into charitable donations to some of New Zealand’s best-known charities. They charge brands to feature on your desktop wallpaper/ mobile lockscreen and donate 75% of that fee each day to your charity of choice.
I have worked as a UI/UX Designer for Little Lot. My responsibility there involved concepting and designing the companies application
and implementing the design across the major platforms.

The online archive of the University of Applied Sciences is an application for students and teachers to inform and inspire. There is a wide range of high quality projects and for another,
it is a searching tool.
Basic and intermediate projects, and even theses and research projects are essential parts of the online archive. The application is divided into two axes for better orientation. Along the horizontal line you can see a first overview of projects. On the vertical axis you can approximate content step by step. In addition, the application provides a context layer on which the user can deduce background information. Information about sociopolitical and creative issues forms the conclusion of the projects. Each user has the possibility to collect a variety of projects in an individual folder that he can share with other people.

"Typography in Motion:
A retrospective – from the beginnings of the film until today
Letters or characters are no more the static medium that they used to be a long time ago. The exhibition ‘Moving Types’ presents 125 years of typography in motion by showing internationally important filmic examples. Since that time, not only pictures were set in motion but also letters. These letters began to move, became multidimensional, and were equipped with special attributes and sometimes even character traits." Source: http://www.moving-types.de/en/
In my master program we had the task of creating a concept for an exhibition,
in cooperation with the University of Applied Sciences Mainz and the Gutenberg Museum.
We were required to structure all internal
and external responsibilities which meant organizing meetings and developing the
main concept of the exhibition. The major function was to classify a range of typography films and develop primary drafts.

Google 2.0 describes a concept which makes the browsing through the internet easier and more controlled. At the same time, the user will achieve effective results and be able to concentrate on searching. The user behaviour and experience are in the centre of the process. Factors such as time-saving, fun and communication are also in the concept. The implementation phase is clearly in the foreground, to make the search experience as accurate, intuitive and user-friendly as possible. Finally the browsing history allows you to work collaboratively with your partners in an easily accessible way.

The "mymo" app is an individual passenger information system. It provides the user with relevant information on local and long-distance public transport for their journey. Real-time information such as seat reservation, delays and also alternative routes and station overviews has been integrated. Being in the right place at the right time is the main goal of "mymo".

"The book Hidden Forms uses examples from Franco Clivio´s collection of objects to reveal clearly and yet poetically the hidden qualities that require a practiced gaze. Working with ordinary, everyday, practical, seemingly design(er)less objects has been Franco Clivio´s obsession both as a university lecturer and as a practicing designer. Each object in the collection stands for an unconventional, unconstrained, and sometimes unique solution to a problem that is often simple but always fundamental (...)."

In my exchange semester at the University of Science and Arts, Basel, I was involved in a collaborative project with a focus on interaction design. The aim was to design an exhibition for the well-known Swiss product designer Franco Clivio. The project was implemented with a series of posters, a brochure and a digital application. The application is based on augmented reality technology and provides further information

The conceptual development and design of an online shop was one of the numerous and interesting tasks during my position as an intern. The complexity of the content was clearly the most important issue and it played a crucial role in the design and implementation phase. The aim was to structure the diversity of individual products and to show them comprehensively. The functional design enables users to orientate more quickly through the shop and ensures that they feel comfortable.
