About VISLAB

VISLAB is transforming data and information into engaging interactive experiences: from data visualisations, to interactive exhibits, to information portals. Throughout our process: from ideation, to conception, to development, we are taking advantage of user-centered design and user research principles, trying to align innovative technological solutions with actual user needs. Beyond project conception and development, we are also consulting clients and organizing workshops on user-centered design and data visualization.

He teaches at HafenCity University Hamburg as a guest professsor, is one of the founders of Maptime Berlin and is heading the Germany Cartographic Society's commission for cartography and research.

Most of VISLAB's projects are collaborations with a network of research institutes, companies and experts across the domains of design, web-development, data science and visualisation.
