Hello! I’m Fabian Mohr, a digital journalist and a product person based in Berlin, Germany (soon: Munich).
I’m on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. You’ll find my bookmarks on Pinboard, my photos on Instagram and Flickr, my videos on Vimeo, new 3D scans on Sketchfab, 360 panoramas on Google Maps, a handful of untalented drawings and illustrations on Instagram and a few audio field recordings on Soundcloud.
Until recently I was heading the interactive team at Zeit Online in Berlin. Our work covered a wide range – you might have seen one of our visual storytelling projects in recent years: Straßenbilder: Mozart, Marx und ein Diktator (English version), Stadt, Land, Vorurteil (English version), Fremde Freunde, Eine Nation pendelt or Das geteilte Land, to name a few.
Previous roles at Zeit included Head of Editorial R+D („Entwicklungsredaktion“) and Head of Video.
Before Zeit I worked for Bayerischer Rundfunk (Bavaria’s public broadcasting service) and ZDF German Television in senior positions including homepage management, reporting and conceptual/editorial project management – preferably in a bridge role connecting journalists, developers and designers.
Before the internet I worked as a news presenter and reporter for radio stations in Bavaria and North Rhine-Westphalia.
I graduated with a Magister degree in history and political science from Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf.
