Who I am

I’m Sabrina Montimurro, a design student based in Stuttgart, Germany. Currently I am doing my bachelor’s degree in Interface Design/New Media at Merz Akademie Stuttgart.

Since the beginning of my studies I am keen on continuously improving my skills. Also outside of my studies I try to learn new skills e.g. by participating in an international students’ project and a hackathon.

During my work placements I gained much experience in working in interdisciplinary teams, especially with computer scientists and psychologists.

I’m particularly intrigued by the possibilites the intersection of design and technology offers and I enjoy to explore these possibilities in the projects I realize.
