Sebastian Schwinkendorf
UI/UX Designer
Hello. I’m a UI/UX 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 and in freelancing projects for agencies and clients such as Max-Planck-Institut or Rocket Internet SE. I’m passionate about creating smart interaction designs and perfect pixel layouts to provide superb user experience for digital products.
