I love what is in you

Hi, I am Chen Nee Faulhaber.
I develop concepts for digital content and have a background in film and art direction.

Growing up in Singapore and spending my professional life in Germany, I find myself often questioning how we differ as human beings and what binds us nevertheless. The fascination with these two sides of life is probably why I enjoy developing digital solutions - the constant examination of whether an interaction is "intuitive", or whether the user's needs are adequately met, allows me to investigate that which is innately human (or our perception of it) and to be pleasantly surprised time and again. I enjoy observing the mutual influences between man, technology and design, and being an active part of it. And at the end of the day, when it all works out, when the technology or medium no longer stands in the way between man and ideas but builds the necessary bridge, that is where I derive my fulfilment.

So, what do I do exactly?

I develop, optimise and visualise concepts. To be more specific:

Concept Development

Information architecture, sitemap, prototype, storyboard, wireframe



Concept Optimisation

Analysing and fixing existing problems in information architecture und design.



Concept Visualisation

Interface design. Motion design. Film editing.
