Digital Product + Service Design, User Experience
For around fifteen years I have been helping companies from startup to multinational reach their goals by employing a design thinking mindset and facilitating a user-centered design process in agile environments. Clients include XING, Hamburger Sparkasse, Haspa Next, Eventim, Fielmann, Engel&Völkers, radio.de, pocketstory and Greenpeace.
As self-employed designer (B.Des. University of New South Wales) I work in the areas from product strategy to user research, facilitate co-creative ideation workshops, concept development, information architecture, interaction design, rapid prototyping and user testing all the way through to on brand visual design. Ideally I like to build products and services in multidisciplinary collaborative teams. Kicking projects off by facilitating Google Design Sprints to validate critical business ideas: fast.
During my time off I co-founded the successful Hamburg Barcamp for User Experience “UX Camp Hamburg” in 2012 and spent my time co-organising it six years in a row. I am a fan of the thinking of David Kelley, Henry Dreyfuss' common sense and scientific approach to design problems, the invention of TimBL, the attitude of Mike Monteiro, the improvisation skills of Ella Fitzgerald and the surrealistic fiction of Haruki Murakami.
