Our Member of the Month for November 2022 is Marten Jahn, who is responsible for user interface and user experience design in the Professional department at Alfred Kärcher SE & Co. KG, and thus for all global standards in the company.

Born in Berlin, he began his industrial design studies at HTW Berlin in 2011 as part of the first cohort at the time. During his studies, he crossed paths with some influential IDZ members, including Prof. Katrin Hinz, Prof. Birgit Weller and Prof. Jan Vietze. After completing his bachelor's degree, he decided to pursue a master's degree at the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam in 2015, this time focusing on user interface design. Supervisors were Prof. Holger Jahn and Prof. Reto Wettach. Like his Bachelor's thesis, Marten Jahn also wrote his Master's thesis at Kärcher. In 2017, he also found his professional home there after completing his studies.
