I love designing enjoyable and easy-to-use products

User Experience is the pivotal point of my soon to be 20-years-career in the digital design business. Despite a lot has changed since my start as a visual designer, some universal insights stay with me until today. Like the bait has to appeal to the fish, not the angler. Sounds easier than it is for businesses though.

I believe building successfull products means being able to orchestrate various business and technological requirements while staying focussed on real user's needs and goals. This is why I want to be the user's advocate by bringing solid research data to the table, by being the user's voice in design sessions and by finding ways to let the team experience the user's actual joy or pain with a product.

In my opinion design should be a collective and ongoing learning process in a multidisciplinary team with open minds, open hearts and open communication. Building bridges rather than building silos. These ideas go well with lean and agile teams because they encourage building solutions quickly, testing and refining them with real users in short iterations.

Design should be centered around users

A solid way to guarantee enjoyable products and high standards in usability is to implement the concept of User Centered Design (DIN EN ISO 9241-210) into design processes. This approach is about fully understanding user's context and goals, defining clear user requirements, creating design hypotheses and evaluating them with real users in an iterative way - until the design solution matches the user requirements. As a UX designer I take various roles in this multi-stage approach and I seek to implement methods from the UX toolbox that fit to actual conditions and product stages.

Lifelong learning is my philosophy

I have worked for media companies, online magazines, TV-stations, car makers, game-publisher, internet provider, advertising agencies, energy supplier, music labels, financial service provider, law firms or musicians. I enjoy exploring the similarities and differences in each domain and I seek to find universal patterns that apply for all UX activities.
