Andreas Hogh:
I´m Andy and I am Industrial Designer since 2012. I´m from the Stuttgart (germany) region and completed a craft apprenticeship there. After working a few years for Mercedes-Benz, I decided to go for a second education. So I studied at the University of Applied Sciences in Munich and the University of Design (Hochschule für Gestaltung) in Schwäbisch Gmünd. My professional work experience ranges from the automotive industry to robotics start-up and now into the med. tech/healthcare sector.
I love working on big picture design strategies but also the work on small details that make the difference. I´am with ottobock. for two years now, and I have the feeling that the journey has just began.
