    Hi Katja

    Nice to see you here! Let's get right to your questions:

    1. Oddly enough I don't. I got into design mostly for practical reasons. I was an engineer and just wanted to make my interfaces more useable & better looking. At that time I did not know much about the design community.

    Along the way I remember I had a few hero that influenced & motivated me, most of them around the flash era. Robert Lindström from North Kingdom, 2Advanced, Tokyoplastic and so on. That was early 2000.

    Since then I mostly get motivated by other people outside of the design industry, ranging from Elon Musk to Tim Ferris or even people who are not alive anymore (: I'm inspired by makers, rebels and people who just get shit done. I love reading about business, psychology & art.

    1. I don't mind it at all! I even appreciate it and always try to get back to everyone as good as I can!

    Thanks for being awesome Katja! You keep it up as well!

      Awesome answer Tobias! It's vital to take inspiration and motivation from outside ones own field. It's a great way to innovate. And the desire to make something look and function better is a noble one - nice work.

      Enjoy the rest of the AMA.
