Hello, I am David Elsche, based in Berlin.

As an interaction designer, my work is focused on infographics and data visualization. In this context, I am interested in analyzing seemingly abstract data, recognizing patterns, making them comprehensible by interactive means and conveying them via analogue, as well as digital channels.

Currently I am conceptualizing an independent platform for micro communities. I am developing ideas, conceiving drafts and formulating strategies for digital community support, based on observations of contemporary social phenomena.

For inquiries regarding my services or a possible cooperation, please don’t hesitate to contact me at contact@davidelsche.com
