About Johannes

Johannes Herseni is an interaction designer based in Berlin. He designs tools that make it easier to access, process and create information, but he is equally interested in exploring the moral and political implications of design and the relationship between theory and praxis. He is currently working on his master’s thesis at Potsdam University of Applied Sciences, where he also obtained his bachelor’s degree in interface design. Previously, he has studied art research and media philosophy at Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design.

Johannes works as a UX designer at Projektbüro .Henkelhiedl.
