Stefan Hermann
DESIGN TECHNOLOGIST

Hi, I‘m Stefan. I‘m a design technologist from Berlin. My work includes qualitative research, building functional prototypes and user testing. The combination of design skills and technical knowledge helps on the one hand to better understand on what is desirable for the users and feasible for the company and on the other hand to mediate between design and technical departments.
