Strategic Designer | Design M.A. Student | Interactive Media Designer B.A.

Passionate about User Experience. Thoughtful design. Coding addicted.
Driven by using technology to make the world a better place.

Hi, my name is Tim J. Peters. I'm a 25 y/o Design Alrounder with focus on interactive and strategic design. I currently live in Berlin working towards a master's degree in Design at the Potsdam University of Applied Sciences. Previously I worked in different agencies for a range of clients from DAX30 like Daimler AG to Bosch Stuttgart, Staedel Museum Frankfurt and a Bio-Tech Start-Up. You can see my full CV here.

My passion is to create unique, human centred concepts, applications and installations with focus on usability and reliability. My work is determined by the urge to make the world a better and easier place for everyone, starting with concepts and technology which place UX and meaning in the forefront. My biggest strengths are the love for what I do, my quick perception and ability to grasp new tasks. Check out some of the projects I've been working on in the past.

I'm currently looking for an challenging student job preferably in the intersection between human centred design and future mobility.
