Introduction

Hello, I’m Johannes Rothkegel. 

As an interaction design student at HfG Schwäbisch Gmünd, I'm dedicated to delving deeply into complex problems, developing concepts to solve them, and bringing those to life with prototypes. My goal is to improve the relationship between humans and technology by creating more natural experiences. Right now, I'm really into Calm Tech, Tangible Interaction, and the interplay between Design and AI. Besides my studies I also get excited about scuba diving and hosting club events with my friends.
