How we perceive design and graphics can be researched from many different perspectives. Maximilian is interested in applying his expertise in the empirical methods of cognitive science to the topic of design perception, and graphic design, in a transdisciplinary approach. Maximilian received his B.Sc. in Cognitive Science at the University of Tübingen. His research interests lie in digital learning environments, multimodal interaction, art-history as a multi-perspective learning topic and, more generally, perception and consciousness. During his Bachelors Thesis he conducted an experiment on the effect of highlighting as a learning support in multi-perspective learning environments on art-history. More specifically, analysing its’ effect on learning behaviour and success with regard to visuospatial working memory as a central learners’ characteristic. At the moment he is working on applying a phenomenological approach to the topic of design perception.
