Hello, my name is Carolin Achtermann and I’m a UX Design Associate at the SAP Innovation Center Potsdam. I am interested in the best way, design and development can work together to create meaningful experiences and help users to make their lives easier.
At the moment, I am a full-time UX Design Associate in the Platform Innovations Team. Before I was a part-time design working student as well as an intern in the Strategic Projects Team at SAP with tasks in the fields of Presentation Design, User Interface Design, information graphics and User Testing.
Since 2016 I studied interface design at the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam. I focused on projects in the field of UI Design, digital typography and dataviz. In July 2021 I finished my Thesis about a tool for visualizing digital data of social movements.
To think outside the box, I took part in the erasmus program for interaction design at the Malmö University, Sweden in spring and summer 2019 and worked on projects in Game Design and Service Design .
In 2015/16 I participated in the first computer grafic course at Deutsche Pop Stuttgart. Afterwards I was an intern at zigzag Stuttgart, where I discovered my passion for UX/UI design, working in a great team with methods like Sprint and design thinking.
After finishing my A-Level, I worked one year in London as an au-pair. In 2015 I finished my Cambridge Advanced English Certificate at the RACC.
I grew up in the south of Hanover, Germany and finished my A-Level with a focus on German, English and Arts in 2014.
