Hello, I am Jan-Henning Raff. I do graphic design for poor artist friends and large companies with 😁 and use in mind which of course, is important in interaction design. Thus, no need to mention it here.

The preoccupation with the visual and the obviously ‘inscribed’ usage of the traditional forms of graphic design are reasons why use is rarely explored in practice and research.
(Raff 2013)

I do research in graphic design. In my PhD thesis I analyzed how people design when they learn. In theory, I brought back the aspect of use into graphic design. Currently Sometime, I will continue to study people‘s use and especially avoidance of advertising. Currently, I am preoccupied with the quality of research in undergraduate studies. My publications are
listed on Mendeley.

Student A.L. is testing the placement of a secretive poster – an exercise in interactive graphic design.

I teach graphic design. I am a professor at HMKW – University of Applied Sciences in Berlin, Germany. My courses are graphic design for public spaces and interaction design.
