Pondering and researching
When I’m out and about, I constantly discover things and think about how they came to be. I think about the applied manufacturing processes, such as welding, casting, milling or turning. It’s an ongoing process of analyzing every tiny thing – an occupational hazard of being a design engineer. Often, I start to ponder and wonder what the point of this or that is. Sometimes I can answer the questions myself; sometimes I search the Internet. As an aside, if you search for our profession on Wikipedia, you find “inventor” in parentheses. For me, invention means developing a new and novel idea from scratch – it is the supreme discipline. To invent something one day would, of course, be a dream come true.
I can definitely imagine staying at Muller Martini. Of course, the current economic situation is a big challenge, and it's not clear how that will develop. But there are still so many magazines and books being printed and consumed. Personally, I have no desire to read books and magazines electronically. The market is there and offers a lot of freedom – the graphic arts industry is thriving.
