About me

Tillmann Jalmari Herth

BA Productdesign
MA Strategic Design

Hello, my name is Tillmann Jalmari Herth, I´m 26 years old, I´m from Mannheim and I studied from 2012 to 2017 product design (BA) and strategic design (MA) at the Hochschule für Gestaltung Schwäbisch Gmünd.

As a product designer my focus is basically on the function of products and consequently the simplification of processes. The product should be designed to be transparent and clear so the function is self explanatory. For this purpose a clear product language is indispensable. A strategic approach in the design process helps to plan projects accurately and to achieve an optimal result. The methodical approach is ideal completed by physical and digital prototyping. It creates a project, that is already solid in the early design process. With the use of innovative technologies and approaches, however, established design should not be completely disregarded, because a new product must compete with the already existing products. It must be an enrichment. Therefore in my opinion good design is timeless, functional and creates an emotional bond with the user.
