Joachim lives and works in London as an Interaction Designer since 2011.
He studied Advanced Design Visualisation & Master of Interaction Design at Umea Institute of Design in Sweden; during the program he gained a valuable real life experience working with design as an intern for IDEO in both Munich & New York for a full year. The final project he collaborated on during this time, 'The Future of The Book' gained widespread coverage and received a Webby Award for Experimental Film the following year.
After graduation, he moved to the UK and spent 4 years working for BBC where he was exposed to a wide range of platforms, including BBC News App, the pionering launch of BBC Three online and a project with The Space where the Arts was central.
Today, he contunies to lead the User Experience for a variety of digital products for S&P Global Platts; including the Ocean Intelligence Portfolio for mapping trade flows. This offers the unique experience of designing for complex visualisation tools with emphasis on cartography and global movements.
When able to travel, Joachim brings with him sketchbooks and a Rolleiflex and has been exploring ethereal and surreal landscapes blended with practices of street photography. Strong influences on the 'light medium' include William Klein, Diane Arbus, Vivian Maier & Stanley Kubrick.
Further to this, in the interest to pursue wholeheartedly the sideprojects the next project is called Project Insomnia, where Music takes frontseat.
