Background

My design background includes interface, interactive and motion design for web, DVD and digital signage. I’m involved in projects ranging from touch-screen interactive signage to iPad apps, web apps, web sites and event projections.

I work with innovative companies such as AVT Event Technologies and their clients, including; Hyatt, Hilton, Omni, Marriott, JW Marriott, Ritz~Carlton and other hotels. I also work on projects for Harley-Davidson Motor Company and Harley Owners Group, in providing cutting-edge live experiences, interactive content design, event themes and projection design.

I am located in Berlin, Germany. I am authorized to work in the E.U. and the United States and I am always looking for interesting challenges.

Sound Installation and Sleep Signal

Yesterday was the last day of my joint ‘Werkschau’ with Jessica P├╝tz at Xtro Ateliers. Jessica created a set of six stunning summer dresses, and I created an interactive 4-channel sound and video installation. Look to my blog or my Sleep Signal page for sound excerpts and concepts soon.

Busy times

Steven Kovar Interactive just moved into a studio space in Obersch├Âneweide, Berlin, at Xtro Ateliers: www.xtro-ateliers.de/. I’ve created a Facebook Page, where I can hopefully make some more regular postings of portfolio pieces and articles: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Steven-Kovar-Interactive/107549935989483. Other than that, it’s been a busy Fall, and I’ve been working on an iPad app, some touchscreen signage, as well as a few other interactive projects.

In Chicago

I’m in Chicago for 5 weeks, until November 2 to work on some new projects, and to visit friends and family. In addition to some of my usual fall work with Message Makers and Harley-Davidson, I’m starting on some new web projects including a mobile site, iPhone app design, and new family of web sites. Exciting time!

I have just moved this site to EngineHosting. It seems to be a very fast host thus far, and is operated by the same company that develops ExpressionEngine.

Another Successful Harley-Davidson Training

I’ve returned to the office after working for a week in Fulda, Germany with Message Makers and Harley Owners Group on the 2009 Harley-Davidson Enthusiast Adventure Training. This was my third year working on the program. The program consisted of video-driven general sessions interspersed with live keynote speeches given by H.O.G. leadership and Harley-Davidson executives. Between general sessions, there are breakout room courses (divided into 7 language groups) that focus on H.O.G chapter issues. I’ve been working on the program for several months designing motion and static projected media. My main role onsite is to attend to any last minute media changes to the program and to help design and finalize general session media. Working with Message Makers is always a pleasure and I’m really happy to have been a part of another successful program.

Dexigner.com - Design Directory

I'm happy to announce that this site has been added to the self-described, "highly selective" DesignDirectory at dexigner.com. It's quite a nice directory of design resources and designers and I've spent a lot of time there enjoying other people's sites and portfolios.
