Concept and Design

Strive for perfection

Digital Design

Creating functional and great looking interfaces, re-designing existing applications, drafting a complete new corporate design for companies, is what I love and do.

Programming

I am interested in programming since I was a child. I am improving my skills every day by solving existing problems, by creating challenging websites or arduino projects.

Creative Direction

Good Design can inspire you and cause so many emotions. As a UX/UI Design Lead, my knowledge in design is well-founded. I love great and well-conceived art and graphic design.

Hackathon Stuttgart Winner - Best Design Award

Best Design Award

Hackathon Winner - Coding for culture

Over Halloween my team and I took place at a Hackathon in Stuttgart where we won the Best Design Award. For this project we only had 42 hours for concept, design and programming. We wanted to combine learning and gaming so we decided to design and program a 2d jump'n'run game in Swift. In this game you have to travel through every federal state of Germany. In every level you have to answer difficult cultural questions. And as it was on Halloween we programmed kind of an easter egg where you are teleported into a horror version of the respective level.

I love great designsee my work below

Mechatronics Workshop

I attended a mechatronics workshop in the university of applied science in Schwäbisch Gmünd. The goal was to program a robot with special skills. So my team partner and I decided to program a Dj-Robot. He is programmed to adjust different soundfiles, crossfades and filters in a software called "Traktor DJ" on the iPad.

Hackathon Stuttgart

Over Halloween my team and I took place at the Hackathon in Stuttgart where we won the Best Design Award. The theme was "coding for culture". We wanted to combine learning and gaming so we decided to design and program a 2d jump'n'run game in xcode with Apples new programming language "Swift". For this we had only 42 hours of programming. In this game you have to travel through every federal state of Germany. In every level you have to answer difficult cultural questions. And as it was on Halloween we programmed kind of an easter egg where you are teleported into a horror version of the respective level.

Dive:In - Interactive Diving Mask

The Project was hosted by Prof. Jörg Beck. Special thanks to him and our university „HfG Schwaebisch Gmuend“. As a university project me and my colleges developed a interactive diving mask for diver with a head-up display. You can see and skip through all your neccessary information in front of you, displayed directly on the glass of your diving mask. With our concept of this mask you don't need to take all your unhandily equipment along.

Human Cloud

Human Cloud is primarily concerned with the human shape in connection with musical influence.
The basic idea was a mirror image which is reacting to musical input. A „Point Cloud“ is used to create a visual of the human shape in the third dimension. Because of that its not just a 2-dimensional mirror image, its a projection with variety of depthfield in it.
The movement of the single particles is controlled by musical input.Everything was coded in Processing with the use of some libraries.
The mainobject of the installation is a "Microsoft Kinect", which has got a infrared camera to analyse the depthfield. The outgoing information is sent to the programm and finally presented on a High Definition Beamer as projection mapping.

Timelapse Video Project

This project was created in order of a seminar week in our university. We had time for one week to photograph interesting spots in stuttgart and schwäbisch gmünd. Afterwards the footage was collected, cutted and edited to get a nice looking timelapse video.
