For me this very complex world has to be simplified - has to be stripped down. 

Design was a way out of confusion. Because great design simplifies this very complicated world.

A user experience designer with heart and soul

A user experience designer with heart and soul

With each of my projects I associate good and bad days, tears, laughter, joy, anger, despair, pride, hatred, loss of feeling for space and time and boundless enthusiasm when I have come to a result that makes others as happy as me. Design is everything to me. It is passion, an attitude towards life - it is my big love. Right at the beginning of my master's degree at HAWK Hildesheim, faculty of design, I focused my career on digital media in interaction Design, with a focus on UX/UI Design. The mix of interaction design, service design, marketing, design sciences and design thinking made me what I am today: A user experience designer with body and soul. I find it particularly appealing to work on exciting projects for digital products or services from the ground up, to conceive them and ultimately to lend them a visual identity. However, the conceptual part of the work was always the most exciting for me. Why? Because good design is mainly about people adding value. 

In my work, it is therefore particularly important to me to use a methodical approach to develop an outstanding and above all relevant concept more than to push it to its limits in order to understand the core of a problem and all related factors and to work out a suitable solution. Attractiveness and aesthetics alone are not enough to make a product or service manageable. The user is always the focus of my product development.


My three preferred works around the megatrend mobility - mind, everyway and envi - represent my design approach perfectly. In all three works I deepened and refined my design process and developed the three themes methodically and conceptually in order to create a socially, ecologically and economically relevant product. Finally, the concepts or individual ideas within the projects were visually underlined and prototypes for the touchpoints between the user and the services provided with the product were designed.
