A Penguin Ninja Game

You may get the assumption that penguins are not my favorite animals. First you had to hit them, now you have to slice them in order to win the game. You’re intuition proves you wrong. Basically this one is a game like “Fruit Ninja” but with penguins and bombs. Each sliced penguin gives you a point in your score, every missed penguin subtracts one of three lifes and if you catch a bomb the game is over immediately. It has also a level system. The more penguins you catch, the harder the level gets and the more penguins will appear at ones. I added…

Whack-a-Penguin, a new iPad Game

New week, new game! I never though I would write games for the iPad, but here we go. This game similar to the “Whack-a-Mole” game. But since climate is changing are penguins hiding in burrows. It’s my second time using SpriteKit. All the parts of Whack-a-Penguin are images that lay over each other. No buttons or tables have been inserted. I programmed touch-recognition and distinguished the good and bad penguins to give + or – scores: The penguin images are in the background all the time, but appear and disappear in random order. Additionally a sound will appear when hitting good ones, and another one when you hit the evil…

Assisting Ei8ht Dreams @Coterie

Last week I had the chance to get to know the new and emerging label Ei8ht Dreams a little better. To work with the founders, designers and sales team at the New York fashion fair Coterie and present their label to potential buyers and department or retail stores has been a great experience for me. The Los Angeles based jeans driven label is one of my favorite young emerging labels so far! The designer Stephanie did an awesome job collecting inspiration and transforming it into her current fashion line. By adding many small details and additional embroidery, distressing or metallic printing she makes every piece special….

First iPad game using SpriteKit!

I implemented SpriteKit the first time for this game. SpriteKit is Apple’s fast and easy toolkit designed specifically for 2D games. The game I did is called Pachinko or “Peggle”. I inserted the background, placed the rainbow bouncers on their place and added red and green slot bases that would later count the score. They are programmed to spin which gives them a fun animation. First the balls just fell wherever I click and didn’t disappear in the slot bases. I gave the slot bases values – either a negative point for red or positive one for green. I also gave the condition that when ball touches the base they…

Why I started to Code

This might be a weird combination – a Fashion Design degree and a passion for technology. The truth is the computer has always been my friend. I found it quite easy to navigate through programs. Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign were not difficult to learn. The internet was an open space to discover. However I never digged deeper into this topic, or questioned how these programs functioned in their root. I remember we had a computer science class (well, let’s say we scratched the surface of it) in my high school. We learned how we can command a robot guy to walk…

Interview with Copper Artist Gabi from Kupferarbeiten Ph. Basche

These awesome artists create wonderful copper sculptures every day and week and work in their work hours as much they celebrate artistic inspiration in free time. The artists from ‘Kupferarbeiten Ph. Basche‘ had been a huge inspiration for my bachelors collection {“Hello World”}. From left to right: Moni, Tom and GabiGabi gave me some of her precious time to do this inspirational interview with me. I was also able to give you some special insights in her copper studio in the north of Munich, Germany. At what age did you find that passion for manual work? Manual work always reminds me of my school days. I’ve never been very…

Next16 – {“Hello World”} Graduate Fashion Show

My Bachelor Collection {“Hello World”} was shown at the Graduate Fashion Show NEXT16 in Munich. The runway show was a great spectacle for all my fellow students and me. All our graduate collections were shown to a broad community of fashion enthusiasts and journalists. It was a great honor and pleasure for all of us and a huge release after all the work. I loved the atmosphere in the hall. The show took place at the Säulenhalle München. Light effects made the colors and fabrics stick out and put our collections in great limelight. The rough reverberating hall was the best location for a show like…

{“Hello World”} – Image Clip

An Image Clip for {“Hello World”} was a great tool to visually explain my interpretation and thoughts further. There were a lot of ideas that would work better in moving images. To visualize a technological topic like this even more, I installed projectors with small electronic clips. Different headlights were added as well, but this time only in white light color. Artificial fog was used to make the light effects more visible and to build a visual bridge between electronic lights and the cooling system of computers. It should be a frosty, clean image clip that emphasizes the materials and 3D elements worn in my collection. You can find the image shooting…

{“Hello World”} – Bachelor Collection

{“Hello World”} An Avantgarde Bachelor Collection My Bachelor Collection {“Hello World”} found a beautiful finish. The last three months I designed and handcrafted the whole fashion collection made of 7 outfits in total. The collection’s topic is {“Hello World”}. I wanted to plunge deeper in the details of modern technology. All those inventions and developments in artificial intelligence and machine learning, how to build the perfect copy of the human brain are crazy. I got involved in this subject after joining the online platform Treehouse to learn Webdevelopment on my own. My bachelor thesis dealt with how networks work and how our Big Data is saved a million miles away, though are…

Awareness Collection – A new interpretation

  The main theme of this collection were birds of prey. More precisely eagles. Vulnerability and shelter played an important role visualized in naked skin and fake fur. I had an awesome outdoor shooting at the Olympiapark in Munich but I recently found a great photographer interested in my work. So here is his interpretation of my collection, a more desert theme inspired by the movie Mad Max. I love it! All photos shot by Route8.
