Profilbild von Niko Ripka

I was born and raised in Monte­vi­deo, Urugu­ay. From 2015 until my gradua­ti­on in 2022 I studi­ed B.A. Inter­face Design at the Univer­si­ty of Appli­ed Scien­ces Potsdam.

During my studies I worked as a student assistant in diffe­rent areas of the univer­si­ty and organi­zed two inter­di­sci­pli­na­ry seminars as a student co-teacher. Additiona­ly, I was a student repre­sen­ta­ti­ve in several univer­si­ty commit­tees such as the General Student Commit­tee and the Univer­si­ty Senate, as well as a spokesper­son for the Branden­burg Student’s Council. Between 2019 and 2020, I was Student Vice Presi­dent of the University.

I am parti­cu­lar­ly interes­ted in inter­ac­tion design, infor­ma­ti­on archi­tec­tu­re and branding. Shaped by my invol­vement in univer­si­ty politics, I place a high value on fairness and sustainability.
