My name is Robert Schnüll *1992 and I am a Creative Technologist and Interaction Designer.
Born in Kulmbach (Bavaria), grown up in Meerbusch (next to Düsseldorf) and currently living in Osnabrück, where I finished my “Media and Interaction Design” bachelor in 2017.
My work is mainly related to working interdisciplinary and collaborative where I covered the fields of coding, physical computing, construction, rapid prototyping and designing processes. During the last years I focused my work on the combination of analog interactions with digital content to create more intuitive and natural user experiences.
With the age of 13, I started learning programming and designed my first websites as well as began to learn 3D animation. After a while I was able to use these skills to work as a freelancer for companies since I was 14 years old.After I graduated from high school I got an job offer from a company based in Norway to concept complex 3d animations and to realize them. Later when I got back to Germany I moved to Osnabrück and started to study as well as ended my freelance work and co-founded a small company where I covered those working areas beside university.
Since my second semester I started to work for different research projects at the university of applied sciences Osnabrück, where I worked on own small research projects and as well as got the responsibility for subareas of some projects. My research were mostly related to HCI, especially in the last two years I covered the areas of ambient communication and calm technologies.
Beside my working and research activities I worked often in the fields of creating public interactive installations as well as designing spatial experiences. Those are related to the previously described fields of work in combination with a background from media art.
