Felix Hülpüsch studied Communication Design at the UE on Campus Berlin.
"After my education as a media designer I wanted to expand my horizon and learn new things. I liked the UE formerly BTK ) straightaway, because there were interesting modules and professors in my chosen programme, Communication Design. The possibility to try different disciplines like Motion Design and Photography totally sold the place to me. The concept of small study groups and a practice-based approach were also very important to me. So in the end the decision was actually a simple one.
The final semester was really the most intense of all, because we as a group organized and designed the entire opening of the graduate exhibition. It brought us graduates closer together. Above all, the development of my final project “Schöne Jugend”, an illustrated volume of poems by Gottfried Benn will always remain a highlight for me. The development and whole production planning were tough but this book is to this day a special memento from my degree and still makes me proud."
What experiences from your studies enabled you to go down your own personal career path? What inspired you to take that path?
"A tip from a professor to go down unusual routes to achieve your goals helped me a lot. This happens in my work but also constantly in my private life, because I can never plan what comes next. I find it enormously important that you have enjoy what you create, but also reflect on it and yourself as well. Only then can you get the most out of yourself."
