Hey there, I’m Nico Brand,
an interaction Designer/- Researcher currently based in Vancouver 🇨🇦
I focus on creating speculative systems to study implications in the context of peoples everyday life.

Happy me in Vienna

How I Work

During my studies @HfG Schwäbisch Gmünd
I learned to build concepts through a human-centered Design-Process. I observe users, explore
test and validate ideas. With the help of great tools, motivated discussions, and not to forget a good lunch pack full of research I'll challenge existing patterns. The goal is always to achieve high usability and joy of use for the 👩🏽‍💻👨‍💻

User-test with eight class students

What I love

I got a ❤️ for photography. Especially Film I’m obsessed with quite a while. These analog processes are a nice balance for me in our fast fast world.
Lately, I made my first photobook “Eretz Yisrael“ with a small batch of 16 copies. Also feel free to stalk me on Instagram :)
