Alex Schmidt, Former Student and UX Designer

"The thrilling topic of UX design has finally arrived in Germany and is more important than ever in today's digital world. Without a user-centered design, a company is currently no longer competitive. For this reason, companies are constantly looking for new creative minds in the UX field. A UX designer is involved in the creative development process from the beginning and accompanies the product all the way to the customer.""

Graduate Arik Bauriedl

"In my eyes, one of the most vital skills in the areas of production management and creative direction is understanding the various departments and integrating them to achieve the best possible result. When implementing image or explainer videos, understanding media psychology and marketing is just as important as editing or animation skills".
