I am an information & interaction designer, based in Graz, Austria.
As a designer, I feel a strong responsibility for making our (increasingly urban) life more livable. In 2011, I co-founded Animal Design Studio — a strategic design practice that revolves around creating meaningful products and communication. I also wrote Neighbourgood, a book on urban neighbourhoods.
Combined, the following two quotes strongly shape my understanding of most contemporary design problems:
"We shape our tools and thereafter,
our tools shape us."
"Every extension is [also] an amputation."
