Hello, I am Jan-Henning Raff. I do graphic design for poor artist friends and large companies, keeping in mind both 😁 and use 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 reintroduced the aspect of use into graphic design. Currently One day, I will continue to study how people use and, especially, how they avoid advertising. Currently, I am preoccupied with the quality of research in undergraduate design 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.
