Hi, I’m Jürgen.

I’m an Interaction Designer from Munich, Germany. I create digital experiences from mobile apps to experimental media installations. I’m a big fan of the user-centered design approach and I like to base my work on a thorough understanding of the problem, the users and the context of use. My design process includes a lot of thinking, sketching, wireframing and prototyping. I also enjoy bringing things to live with code and tinkering with different technologies.

On the weekends, you’re most likely to find me somewhere in the mountains.

Work Experience

I currently work for the design agency IXDS in Munich as Interaction Designer.

Previously, I was working for the digital agency SinnerSchrader and prior to that, I did freelance design during my studies. I’ve been able to gain work experience in four different countries, while working for private clients, NGOs, design agencies and large corporations. Amongst others: BSH, Deutsche Bank, BMW and Allianz.

Education

I’ve completed the Master’s degree course »Media & Interaction Design« at FH Joanneum in Graz (Austria) and hold a Master of Arts and Design degree.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree (course »Information Design«) from Stuttgart Media University (Hochschule der Medien) in Stuttgart, Germany.
