this is the portfolio of Elisabeth Eichhorn. I'm an interaction and interface designer from Berlin,
Germany. I'm working in the automotive industry since some years, for my professional
experience visit my Xing or Linked-In profile or contact me.

The sections below show my core competencies with corresponding examples.Due to
confidentiality I cannot show more recent work, so it is mostly from university.

I general like to work in research environments and in multidisciplinary teams.
The last conferences I attended were: MobX, UxLx, OFFF, DIS'12, Automotive UI'11,
(GSC), ACII'09 (demoed), TEI'09, SIDER'09 and MobileHCI'08 (short paper).

Interface and Interaction Design

Developing interfaces to manage data and communication is the most exciting field for a designer to work in today (at least in my humble opinion ;). Holding a M.A. in Interface Design I'm able to develop new ideas from concept level to physical or software prototypes.

Information Architecture and Visualization

Complex relationships tend to be depicted in
even more complex graphics. I can help you
to visualize your data in graphics that help to understand the facts.


Starting with an own website over ten years ago I developed my skills in designing and programming websites during my studies and work experience in web agencies. I offer concept, design and programming (in HTML and Flash).

The bracelet visualizes the performed physical and
intellectual work.

In the morning after
getting up:
While sleeping the
vegetative system worked
the most.

Midday after the first lectures:
The user experienced some
emotions but intellectual work
was the most.

A decorative variation:
The patterns gets more
delicate the higher the activity is.

Output Index

Especially brain workers often ask themselves “What did I achieve today?“
I wanted to visualize how much our body and mind work throughout the day irrespective the outcome.
Therefore I developed the concept of this bracelet that measures and displays the following kinds of activity:
Thinking (yellow), feeling (orange), physical (red) and vegetative system (purple).

The size of the stripes shows the amount performed activity for every category.
If people are really conscious about their brains and body they could even say what time it is by watching their performance. (Designing a time visualization was the original short time task.)
