DAISY - Nice to meet you!

early 2021

Connecting with people is hard, even more in the middle of a global pandemic. Instead of sitting inside and having long conversations via chat, you can meet new people while walking around a nearby lake. Together with my fellow student Lukas, we developed the iOS App DAISY during the winter lockdown 2020/2021. The app is free to use for all NORDAKADEMIE students via special codes.

Human centered workplace design

mid 2020

A typical production worker spends his/her major working hours sitting or standing at his/her workplace. Hence the workplace must be very suitable and ergonomic for him/her and adapted to the tasks. During the „Production and Quality Management" course we developed in a team of 5 students a future workplace for a transmission assembly using the Cardboard Engineering method.

Nightlife organization App "OneNight"

early 2020

It can be tricky... organizing a joyful party night . The desired nightclub is closed or fully booked, the friends are arriving at the wrong place or other obstacles are quite common. Together as a team we developed a concept for enhancing the nightlife experience. My part was to develop a design system for a suitable app.

About me

Who is Philipp?

I'm Philipp Hemkemeyer, 24, born in northern Germany, Hamburg. I am passionate about programming and designing interfaces for humans to ensure better equality and inclusivity to compensate deficits. I like to dive deep into ISO 9241 standards and hope that the signal-to-noise ratio is not to small on this site.

Studying/Working

Currently, I'm studying M.S. Human-Computer Interaction at Georgia Institute of Technology in the USA. Before that I studied B.S. Industrial Engineering and Business Management at NORDAKADEMIE in Germany. I also enjoyed working at Airbus (the European aircraft manufacturer).

Hobbies/Leisure

In not pandemic times I go to the gym 💪🏻 every week and in summer time I like to play beach volleyball 🏐 or go windsurfing 🏄🏼. Regardless of the weather or time I am an avid filmmaker 🎞 and photographer 📸. I also love to camp 🏕 and going on hikes to feel the nature 🌱.
