Christian Guder is a Berlin based Product, Interface and Interaction Designer. He is operating at the interface between art, design and technology. After an apprenticeship as industrial mechanic at Leica Microsystems, Jena he studied at the Bauhaus-University Weimar Product Design.The past two years, Christian Guder gained practical experience working as a project manager and interface designer at Christopher Bauder`s Studio - WHITEvoid interactive art&design, Berlin, Germany. This involved realising international projects ranging from installations, to user interfaces for museums and trade shows targeting appeal to the public. Furthermore, through my apprenticeship as an industrial mechanic, I am highly skilled in mechanical engineering. I believe an ever growing range of technologies will be introduced into our environments in the future. Our task as designers is to take this growth in the field of industrial engineering and form it through good design that makes the technology accessible to the customer. Christian Guder Portfolio gives you a introduction to my work.
