You are awesome, but I feel this has to be about me ...
My name is Fritz* and I am a sound machine – whoosh, tprrr!
Born in front of the bavarian alps, I grew up fascinated by all kinds of explorers and cows. My curiosity led me to many adventures like falling into a fountain twice aged four, finding my creative freedom through skateboarding and getting electric-shocked during my apprenticeship as an electronic technician… You know, I like to challenge myself ;)
I ended up in Australia and Asia, overwhelmed by the inspiring people I met, their stories and the rawness of nature. Around that time I discovered an intrinsic need to help others.
All of this brought me to study Interaction Design in Schwäbisch Gmünd, Germany – a town in the middle of nowhere! During that time I interned at stellar in Ulm and ended up once again on the other side of the world to study Media Design for one semester in Wellington, New Zealand.
Currently, I work as an interaction designer at gravity in Munich, bridging the digital and physical world and solving problems with beautiful product and service experiences.
I strongly believe good design can change people’s lives for the better. This can be a small feature, or a game, putting a smile on millions of people’s faces or a revolutionary innovation for a few. To make it meaningful we need to focus on the people, and in times of technologies like AI, not forget what Uncle Ben said to Spiderman: “With great power comes great responsibility“. What's your story?
