I am Barbara, a User Exerience Designer, font nerd and Ramen addict. Currently → MING Labs in Munich. Formerly → ābove and edenspiekermann.

Introduction

I work in teams across disciplines, designing experiences that shape our mindset towards interactive systems, products and services. I like to explore complex topics and experiment with code, data, shapes and colors. Sometimes I get emotional about fonts and Chinese food. Currently, I am learning Japanese.
