Yannic Heintzen

Creative technologist, Multidisciplinary and Full Stack Designer

Yannic Heintzen ( * 1994, Freiburg) works in the realm of design and technology, exploring the possibilities of technology and how it can alter and enhance our perception of design and its influence on our society. …

… Starting with an bachelor study in design with an emphasis on photography, he takes inspiration from both moving and still images and the process of working with images. But with a heart for tech and programming, he is always drawn to other and new fields of design. From developing web applications, hardware prototypes with arduinos to AR-Filters. While studying in his masters in Communication Design at the HAW Hamburg he developed an even stronger interest in design theory and speculative design. Therefore he is driven to contribute to the discussion and development of design as an field of science. With years of experience in advertising agencys as an Art Director and Creative Technologist he spans graphic design, working with new technologies and web development in his creative process. Driven by the idea of ​​knowledge sharing as an elementary part of internet culture, he also works as a lecturer in order to pass on his knowledge to future designers.
