Marcel Hinze: profile

In each profession you’ll find that as you search for a solution there are many options and is very much dependent on your interests, the ability to let go of preconceived opinions, whether or not you recognise opportunities and use these to the fullest, making the most of your technical skills, feelings, and intuition.
The designer has a task to create a basis on which information proceding from human beings and their surroundings communicate together. Developing a basic structure, searching for interrelation and identity, leaving enough ‘space’ to keep every option open, the possibility for future development. It is important to try to search
for a matter of course in order for people to create their own views instead of dictating these in the first place. An interface arises through developing and coordinating processes of change equally , alltogether they are more valuable and useful compared to using them seperately.
