Sven Schiemann - Interaction & Graphic Designer

Keep Your Hands On. Conception and design of an intuitive effect interface for the DJ software TRAKTOR was the topic of my Bachelor Thesis. The focus was on the possibilities of touch-sensitive and sensor-controlled devices and how the cooperation of visual and manual interaction can be used as an interface. During the work, I delta with the visualization of controls and interface structure as well as interactions of such an application. The new interface gives the DJ more room, information, and fun in controlling the effects. Freed from the normal knob/button control, the user interacts directly with the interface and can customize the effects to his wishes and ideas.
