obergudt provides a way to obtain good locally produced food directly from the best producers, farmers, bakers, microbreweries and beekeepers around.

As a co-founder of obergudt, I was able to shape the company's vision from the begin. I got a deep insight into the startup world and I learn to fail — many times. Initially, I create a design language of obergudt and build, together with Arvid Kahl (a extremely talented full stack developer), the first location based food-platform in Berlin where farmers can publish their story and sell their organic food online. After launching, I build interdisciplinary design team which tested new product ideas and worked further on the visual brand of obergudt. We made the experience that local foods benefit is more about human interaction and face to face contact. We rethought our business model and tested the first pick up store concept — rethought again — and currently testing local food boxes.

comdirect is a leading direct bank and with approximately 200 million page impressions a month, comdirect is one of Germany’s most heavily used financial websites.

The idea behind this project was to support people with financial planning by combining their data with potential scenarios and events in the future. The tool then helps to compare different saving products by the comdirect bank and its competitors. Michael and I worked together with an interdisciplinary team consisting of developers, mathematicians and marketing specialists. We helped comdirect shaping the idea for the tool and built a hi-fi prototype for testing and presentation purposes.
