Biography:

Dipl.-Des. (FH) Tom Bieling, born in 1979, studied Design at the University of Applied Sciences, Cologne (Germany) and Universidade Federal do Paraná, Curitiba (Brasil).

He currently focuses on design-relevant coherence of methodology and didactics (q.v. his diploma key issue Design and Dialogue, 2007) as well as perception of picture, behaviour of reading and information concerning systems of digital communication and display-technologies. Since october 2007 he lives and works in Berlin as a designer and design research scientist at the Deutsche Telekom Laboratories, where he also is a PhD candidate.
