Hey, I'm Philipp. I work as an Interface Designer and just finished my degree at FH Potsdam.

Haptic Portal


Haptic Portal is a remote intimacy project, connecting close friends and family through a haptic link. The project relied heavily on prototypes for communicating and validating ideas.

After an initial video prototype, I created a rough cardboard-based prototype, finishing with a polished and long lasting prototype and model. This IoT project was based on an Arduino Uno.

Interactive Triangles is a projector based installation. The user can define an image which is stylized using triangles.

The user can then interact with the triangles using a remote multi-touch tablet interface. Utilizes Processing.



Shake to choose a pattern, switch off lights and enjoy! At Phoenix Design building a YoYo is traditionally the last project for interns.

I created a light-painting YoYo with RGB led rings and a tiny battery-based arduino completely from scratch.

Layout Invaders


I created a space invaders inspired game for Adobe InDesign, while researching the boundaries of what is possible with Adobe Scripting language and InDesign. It recevied some attention.

Map-based visualization of tourists in Berlin. After analyzing about 110000 geolocated photos from Berlin, I developed a custom method to determine the home country of every photographer.

Printed posters and an interactive tool can be used to explore and compare the data. Try Everyone loves Berlin
