User Need Identification

I observe users, their environments and processes in order to understand behaviours, motivations and goals. 


Concept Evaluation

I analyse products and markets and discuss new ideas with potential target users to see if concepts are valuable and relevant.
 

Translation of insights

I document key insights and make them actionable for different stakeholders. 
 


Design & Product Validation

I evaluate and iterate usability aspects to increase design quality and user satisfaction through iterative approaches.
 

Interaction/Interface Design

I aim for accessible, intuitive, consistent designs. I care about details and embrace a clean and delightful visual language. 


 
 

My »feature history« …

1998–2007

In the beginning were grids and guidelines … as a design trainee, I gathered my first experiences in a medical design company, followed by a Luxembourg-based communication agency. I then started working in editorial design and continued freelancing for various clients in different fields. Lessons learned: Choosing and using tools wisely.

2007–2013

Bored of nice-looking but somewhat static things … I eventually studied Interface Design and graduated at the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam. Focusing on team collaboration and processes I here mastered to make decisions and defend ideas. Not »just because« but for a reasonable »why«! Lessons learned: Accepting quite some challenges.

since 2012

Because plain assumptions mostly fail … I strongly believe in putting people in the center of everything: to understand motivation and expectations, and to get valid feedback on ideas as early as possible. Try and error – for the sake of steady iteration and improvement. Lessons learned: If at first you don't succeed, better get used to it.
