Hi there, I'm Christian and I'm working as a web developer and visual/product designer for styla.com in Berlin. Before Styla I worked for the online music television service tape.tv until the end of 2014.
I studied Information Technology at FH Zwickau, Germany, graduated as an
engineer in 2009 and worked as a software developer/engineer afterwards.
Besides motion design I was constantly looking into web related programming,
UX and GUI design. I decided to move to Berlin in 2012 to dive deeper into this adventure.
At the same time I started an additional study in Leipzig, Germany, at the Leipzig School of Media besides my job in order to improve my knowledge and get a bigger picture in general media, web technologies and economics as well as project management. I graduated this additional study as a Master of Science in Crossmedia Management. During this time I became a strong supporter of the Open Source and Open Data movements.
Naturally, as an engineer I'm eager for learning new things, figuring out how stuff works and solving problems.
I enjoy working on challenging projects with others and value good thoughts and ideas.
I believe that truely great apps can emerge, when knowledge meets skill, passion and an idea everyone believes in. Those apps are often defined by performance, robustness, scaleability, good code quality, swift deployment cycles and well thought-out UI aesthetics. As an engineer and designer I'm able combine the best of both worlds.
