Hi!  I’m Jan Christian Schulz…


…and I’m a curious designer & developer from Northern Germany.

In 2012 I started studying Product Design at Hannover University of Applied Sciences and Arts where I gained a lot of useful experience in various areas. During my studies I had great stays abroad, including a study semester at FHWN Basel in Switzerland, an excursion to establish a university cooperation in Indonesia and the chance to exhibit at Milan Design Week. In addition to my studies, I worked as a CAD designer for a furniture company and for the IF International Forum Design in Hanover. During winter 2017 I did an internship at the company of the Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek in Eindhoven. After my Bachelor Graduation I worked for two years as designer and project manager for the furniture company Thonet. Currently I am enjoying my Social Design Master program at the Design Academy Eindhoven.

More of my projects can be found on www.schulzthiel.de
