Philipp Hummer (male) is CEO and leader of the Design at SPOTTERON. He is a professional designer and founder of SPOTTERON Gmbh, with over 18 years of experience in design, web design, user interface design, media production, online media, visual design and team management.
Philipp was born in Wels, Upper Austria and was undertaking expeditions into nature already as a little kid. The term "Citizen Science" was not yet present in these times, but Philipp sent his first species observations of Green Toads (Bufo viridis) to the Natural History Museum's herpetology department when he was just 8 years old. Via postal letter - because internet or smartphone apps were not a thing back then!
Philipp's second most favourite thing in the universe is Art and Visual Aesthetics. Drawing and painting have always been a big part of his life, sparking also his interest in visual design and media production. When the internet came to households, a love was born. Philipp built his first websites in pure handcrafted HTML when modems did make sounds. This all conglomerated in a ton of experience and practice, which is now applied at the SPOTTERON Citizen Science platform.
