UI/UX design
Hello. I’m an Interaction & Visual Designer living in Berlin and I love to design smart, serious and usable interfaces. I gained 6 years work experience while studying Interface Design (B.A.) at University of Applied Science in Potsdam and in freelance projects for agencies and clients like Max-Planck-Institut or Rocket Internet SE. I’m passionate about creating smart interaction designs and pixel-perfect layouts to provide superb user experience for digital products.

MY approach

I constantly think user-centered while creating smart and attractive user interfaces.

TARGET GROUP

USER RESEARCH

I create personas, scenarios & use cases to get a concrete idea of requirements and the target group of a digital product.

WIREFRAMING

UX CONCEPT

I do conceptual thinking about interaction by wireframing my ideas. A result could be a paper prototype or an interactive mockup.

CREATING PIXEL PERFECT

VISUAL DESIGN

I design smart and clear user interfaces with state-of-the-art design patterns. My favourite tools are Fireworks, Sketch & Photoshop.

DEV DOCUMENTATION

STYLE GUIDE

I record all layouts, grids, fonts, icons and design patterns in a style guide to handover a summarized documentation to the dev-team.

“I’m an experienced team player but have proven to work stand-alone as well. I pursue the user-centered design process to create beautiful and highly usable interfaces for hardware, web-based software and mobile devices. I’m strongly focused on the users needs to make the digital world simple and understandable.”
