LEVIE Wake up feeling great

Bachelor's thesis



LEVIE is an intelligent sleep system that actively monitors the sleep and improves sleep quality. The integrated Ambient Light helps to awake naturally relaxed. Further functions such as generative music, adjustment of the brightness and an intuitive gesture control increase the user experience and usability. This Bachelor thesis was developed in collaboration with Michael Dobkowitz and Christian Kremer.

Winner of the Future Award 2015 category "Home"

APP DESIGN Various work

Free projects



Some of my new app UIs. Some contain a link to the interactive version with Framer.



I often use Framer to define the transitions. Find an example here: framer.cloud/HhVKQ/

CAR UI Concept

Free project



Attempt of creating a modern car dashboard UI. There are two color modes: Red is the SPORTS mode and blue the ECO mode.

Arduino + Framer

Free project



Using the Arduino's Keyboard.press function to send a Keystroke to Framer converting the sensorValue. That way it's possible to test the interaction and transitions of GUIs controlled by all kind of input methods. In this example I simulated the rotary-push button to communicate with a car UI concept.

ABOUT ME

I’m an Interaction Designer based in Munich. I work as a working student at Goodpatch and do my master’s in Human Factors Engineering at the TU München. Over the past 5 years I have worked for various companies, startups and on personal projects defining the design including creation of sketches, wireframes, pixel-perfect assets, animations and interactive prototypes. I’m always on the hunt for new learnings and challenges. When I’m not designing, you can find me playing the guitar, taking photos and traveling.
