Notes

Call it a blog, a journal or a digital notebook – Just a collection of thoughts, ideas and stories I wanted to have in written word on the web.

    Adventure's Calling

    At the beginning of September I will move from Zurich to Lausanne and start studying Industrial Design at ECAL. After working a lot in the office in the last few months I felt the urge to get out of the city and relax a bit before I start a new chapter. So a good friend and I took the train to Ticino, the italian part of Switzerland, and hiked up to a mountain hut to stay overnight. The next morning we more or less climbed up a summit and said good morning to a few capricorns. Before going home to Zurich we took a swim at the beautiful cliff site of Ponte Brolla in the Maggia valley.

    Letten Ritual

    After my foray into independent work I decided to search for a regular job again. This gives me more security to earn money before I start studying at the end of summer. As luck would have it, the web agency Station where I worked a few years ago was searching for a Frontend Developer. It was special and nice to start working with these people in that office again. And it brought me right back into the habit of spending lunchtime at the river with my coworkers. Quality time!

    Office Guest

    Instead of working for an agency I decided to work independently. As I'm just starting off I don't have my own office space. So I work from home, in cafes, in libraries, outdoors, or like today at some friendly friends office. Thanks Ramon and Marc from the digital design agency Unknown to let me work in their beautiful office right at the Limmat in Baden.

    Elder Island

    This weekend I went to see Elder Island live in concert here in Zurich. The venue at the Exil is perfect for this kind of band. Small and intimate. The Bristol-based collective's music is atmospheric and deep yet can suddenly change to a very upbeat and dancy tone. Next to sizzling synths you hear the lead singer Katy's otherworldly voice and sometimes even traditional instruments like the violin. One of the best concerts I went to lately.

    Prototype Craft

    At the moment instead of creating websites I'm working on my application for an industrial design study spot. In the last two weeks I've designed a standing desk. Now is the time to test if it works and find out how it appears in real scale. I haven't worked on a wood project like this for some time, so I'm scared and excited at the same time.

    Winter Holidays

    This week it was that time of the year when my friends and I make our winter holidays. It's always one of the yearly highlights. Around 10 friends living in a large apartment as one big family in the swiss mountains. A view of multiple peaks over 4000 metres high, snow and snowboard ready at the front door. It was again a reminder for what kind of experiences I'm working for.

    Farm Service

    As part of my civilian service (the army's not my thing), I'm working for 6 weeks on a farm in the french part of Switzerland. Helping the farmer with his daily cow work and aiding in the construction of a new barn. I grew up on a farm so this was kind of going back to my roots. It's a great experience to bring some distance between me and the computer screen, to do physical work outdoors, even though the snow tells you the temperature's story. Improving my french is a nice side effect.

    Skate Morning

    I haven't been on my skateboard for quite some time. After surfing in Costa Rica and Panama this summer the wavy curves of this concrete paradise in Zürich are well appreciated.

Thanks for reading and have a nice day.
