Meet the motos–Jasmin Cziborra
In our „Meet the Motos“ series, we introduce you to the brilliant minds behind the think moto team. Today we talked to Jasmin Cziborra. She is a user experience designer and speaks about her work at think moto.
👋 Hi Jasmin! It’s wonderful to have you with us. Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
Hello! I am Jasmin, 25-year-old UX designer here at think moto. I started as an intern and working student at think moto and have now been permanently employed for about 2 years. I was born and raised in Saarland. For my studies, I moved to Schwäbisch Gmünd near Stuttgart, where I studied interaction design at the Hochschule für Gestaltung (University of Design). During my internship, I fell in love with Berlin and decided to move here.
Your path to think moto began with an internship. How did you discover the agency and what inspired you to join our team?
That was in the fourth semester of my studies. At that time, I was studying interaction design in Schwäbisch Gmünd and was looking for an internship. During this search, a friend recommended the book Branded Interactions to me. I quickly realized that the authors were running an agency. On the think moto website, I then saw that they were looking for UX/UI interns and I applied immediately. The rest is history.
As a UX designer, what kinds of projects do you typically work on?
Actually, I am working here at think moto in a hybrid role. I am a UX designer, but I operate at the intersection between strategy and visual design. I take the concepts from strategy and translate them into concrete concepts for websites or chatbots. My outputs are usually wireframes and descriptions for interaction behavior, which I then pass on to the visual design team. I have also been involved in conversational design projects for the design of chatbots. Overall, I enjoy moving between strategy and concept, understanding the essence of a brand, and then translating that into a concept.
You mentioned that the team is an essential part for you. How would you describe the think moto team dynamic?
A harmonious team culture is just as important to me as the projects and was crucial for my decision to work at think moto. We support each other, appreciate feedback from others, and deal openly with criticism. It’s nice that we can interact so openly, have a beer together after work or play games. We also regularly hold smaller team events, which I personally really enjoy.
What makes think moto stand out for you, besides the good atmosphere?
For me, what distinguishes think moto, in addition to the pleasant atmosphere, is primarily the diversity of projects. We collaborate with a wide range of industries, starting from small companies to very large ones. Our projects are diverse, and we always tailor our process to the clients and their needs. I also like that think moto places great emphasis on sustainability. Everything we develop follows the principle of being smart, simple, and sustainable.
Outside of work, do you also spend your free time with creative activities?
Absolutely! I like to explore the world through my lens. I enjoy photography and often film in my everyday life. I always carry a small camera with me that can record 4K videos. At the end of the year, I then edit a small annual review. I also like sharing these videos with friends and family.
Thanks for sharing your journey with us, Jasmin. It’s been a pleasure learning about you and your work at think moto.
