My passion is ...

to create good digital products & services. I am able to transform an idea into a finished product with focus on the users, attention to design details, technical specifications as well as business requirements.

I believe that an interaction designer is above all a collaborator who connects user experience with business values, through an understanding of technology.

Design Process

For me, the most thrilling part of the design process is to find the best solutions during brainstorms and collaborative discussions with team. 

1. Research

Desktop research, analysis and interview with people in their everyday context

2. Concept & Prototype

Brainstorming, narrowing down into few concepts, mock up, a sketched scenario and click dummies

3. Design & Production

Create wireframe, define rules and meanings, design key screens, style guide and asset production

 

Tools

I usually start with post-its to quickly note down thoughts. Scribbling ideas on a paper is one of my favourite ways of brainstorming.  My current favourite tools are Sketch, Invision, Zeplin and Trello.  

 

Goal 2016

My plan in 2016 is to continue learning German to reach an Intermediate level and make a great product that people love to use.
