Product designer breaking down and solving complex problems, enabling others to create, shape, learn, or become more effective.
I love to work in detail-oriented cross-functional teams toward a vision we believe in.
Centralizing all shortcuts for designers and making them searchable. The site has 13k+ monthly visitors and became Producthunt Product of the Day. I’m building new features and working on various sponsorships and business models.
Sponsored by Framer, Around, VEED.io, Commandbar, Uxcel, Iconfinder, Proto.io, CleanShot X, Sip, and more.
Creating the best festival companion app as a service containing timetables, ticket wallets and shops, maps, chat, timeslot booking system, and more.
Helping to improve people’s physical health by creating a digital personal fitness trainer with 24/7 personal coaching, easy food tracking, AR train instructions, and training programs, and extended health data.
Researching, envisioning, and prototyping the future of mobile-first presentation software, enabling users to communicate their ideas away from their desk.
Envisioning and designing native apps and custom back-end systems, balancing accessibility, user-focused, technical, and business-driven needs and constraints, for various SMB's.
Set up our day-to-day design process and scaled it up to a team of 4 designers, worked on internal libraries, and (co-)hired and -guided various interns and junior designers.
Graduated with a 10/10 and cum-laude. Left WeTransfer because of COVID-19 hiring freezes.
As a product design intern, I got the chance to design the mobile application of Coffee By Benjamin, from first concept to final prototype. I also got the opportunity to learn about product design working on smaller features for Sketch Cloud and WeTransfer.
