Hello—I’m a transdisciplinary designer and researcher from Germany. Minimalism—as philosophy and a pathway in design is my obsession.
           My research interest is—making the design process more accessible for the transformation of our society. I believe that design is a critical tool for solving complex problems, improving everyday life and keeping relationships towards people, technology and ecology in mind. It results from crossing boundaries between digital and analog, fiction and reality, research and practice and most importantly between disciplines.
           I studied “Communication Design” at Hochschule für Gestaltung in Schwäbisch Gmünd, Germany and “Sustainable Design Strategies” at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver, Canada. Previously, I worked at Bootschaft – Crew für Gestaltung in Ulm, Germany and at Tangible Interaction in Vancouver, Canada. Most recently, I found the design studio jonas—voigt.com and in-between times I support Arthelps.
            Currently, I seek after graduate studies of “Transdisciplinary Design” at Parsons School of Design at The New School in New York City.
           Feel free to get in touch and say hello. :-)
