New office at Aufbauhaus84

April 2, 2015 | By |

As of a this month, my new HQ is at Aufbauhaus at Moritzplatz (Berlin Kreuzberg).

Aufbauhaus at Moritzplatz. Easy to find even straight from the subway station.

Not only is the building complex one with a rich, interesting history and a great concept (summary in English). The wing we (we as in Alper, Will and I) move into is also sparkling new and so our own space is up to speed on its architecture and functionalities: ceiling and floor heating and cooling, energy efficient LED lamps all ’round, phone cabins, meeting rooms, etc. In other words, a bit less of a temporary space, but rather something to use for a few years. We’ll be sharing with our friends Syspons, a consultancy for organizational change, strategy and evaluations.

The Berlin Subway Camo Shirt

March 4, 2015 | By |

A fun weekend project produced this lovely super ugly Berlin subway camouflage shirt. If you’ve ever taken the subway in Berlin, particularly the uber-popular U8 line, you’ve had the joy of experiencing this pattern up close.

There are of course other fantastic products paying homage to the city’s subways, like this bag, this lovely collection of public transport-themed clothes, and the public transport pattern project. All of which I love!

I’ve wanted to have a piece of clothing paying homage to this design for a long time. Now, thanks to the quite excellent service Print All Over Me, it has become easy. So here we go: The Berlin Subway Camo shirt on printallover.me!

A new team for UIKonf!

October 14, 2014 | By |

A few weeks ago, my UIKonf partners Chris, Matt & I decided that we wouldn’t have the bandwidth to run & grow the event in 2015. I’m super happy that our blog post about our plans found the exact right response – a new team stepped forward to take over from us. We couldn’t be happier as this team is excellent, knows the event series inside out and just, well, gets it. We’ll all stay around to help out of course as we wouldn’t want to just drop out of the whole thing. It’s too good and too much fun to abandon the event, we just can’t be the leads.

Engin, Maxim & Sabine, you rock! This is going to be great!

More updates as soon, straight from the new team, at uikonf.com
