Starting from his training in web technologies, Thomas has developed from the visual design of surfaces to the conception and planning digital products. For over 4 years, he has worked for companies and governments in the private and public sectors. He has worked in many areas of product/project development. From user research, conception and visual design to the strategic development of products. His focus today is on user-centered user experience projects to create real added value for people and companies.
Thomas sees every project team member as an active participant in the user experience of digital products. He believes that open communication and transparency are the cornerstones to creates space for new ideas of every user-centered project.
As a designer with experience in various fields, Thomas developed a T-shaped model of his abilities. The focus is on interaction design and user research.
Trust in various aspects in interaction design has long occupied Thomas during his studies and led to his work » Designing Trust in Online Experiences«. Since then, he has studied the use of data in the user-centred design and researched the use of personal data in the design process. Now he focuses on projects in tension between user-centred data strategies and technologies such as artificial intelligence.
