Benedict Huebener

Nationality: German
Area of Expertise: Industrial Design, Interaction Design

Benedict’s biggest interest is finding elegant solutions to complex problems. He studied Industrial Design to combine his passion for mechanics and aesthetics. Yet, as time went by, his focus shifted away from traditional industrial design, towards Interaction Design and User Experience.

The time at KHB gave him the opportunity to work together with students from different academic fields and acquire traditional industrial design skills as well as prototyping technics both physical and digital. During and after his studies Benedict worked at design studios as well as tech companies. He had the chance to work at complex and sometimes controversial projects such as a pro TTIP campaign, a new electronic ID system or a series of applications for the Ethiopian government.

Benedict believes that a group of people from different professional backgrounds has the chance to take on some of todays bigger problems.
