What is the first thing that comes to your mind, when you think about HMKW?
HMKW for me was a great place to start my life in Berlin.
You studied the master program „Communication Design “. What is your current job position and what are your tasks? How did you figure out your preferred career? Did your internships have any influence on your job choice?
My current position is as a Junior Frontend Developer (software engineer) at a startup called Grover. I was an Intern turned Working Student in the marketing team throughout my study period, and then was offered a full time position as a Content Manager when I graduated. Studying graphic design and brand design at HMKW in my course definitely helped me in producing images and text for the marketing team.
Why did you decide to study “Communication Design”? And why did you choose HMKW Berlin?
With a bachelor's degree in Art/Art History I was looking for more high level creative career opportunities that would be unlocked by acquiring my M.A. I chose HMKW because of the possibility to study in English.
Which contents of your studies are part of your current job? How do your studies help you in your work routine?
I can trust my judgement on design decisions, follow the guidelines set by our internal design team, and create and present my own designs for web projects thanks to my experiences in the Communications Design course. I think about user experience and use design thinking as part of my work on the web daily.
