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 twice into a fountain 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 at the HfG Schwäbisch Gmünd – a renowned University continuing the work of the Bauhaus and HfG Ulm. 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 in Munich as an interaction designer at gravity, bridging the digital and physical world as well as working on strategic, and very secret, innovation projects. (If you are curious to see more of these, write me and I can show you some snippets!)
I strongly believe that 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 should 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“.
And what's your story?
