Simplifies your business with design and software.

The business you are in might be complex, but does the way you work have to be complex as well?
You are the expert in your field, helping your customers to achieve big things.

But…

How often do you get stuck because of either over-complicated processes or dull, repetitive tasks preventing you from doing your actual work?

You will be amazed by how much a small piece of well-designed software can ramp up your productivity! Or how a simple redesign of your website or app can boost customer satisfaction.

Let’s see how I can help simplify your business.

Empowering Aid Organisations

There are many non-profit organisations out there, giving their best to make our world a little better. I in turn want to give my best to make their journey to achieve their goals a little smoother. Read more about my effort to empower aid organisations.

Principles

As a designer I want to provide the user with the most productive way to achieve her goal.
As a developer I strive to develop websites and apps which are easy to maintain and extend even in the years to come.
This is why I base my work on the following principles.

Clarity

A few things should be cristal-clear to the user at every moment
Where am I, what has happenend so far, what can I do now, what is going to happen when I take the next steps.

Flexibility

Today's designs need high flexibility to give the best experience in every situation. In my work I take the many screen sizes, varying bandwidths as well as different contents and states into account.

Familiarity

To make the user feel at home, I watch out to not unnecessarily reinvent the wheel in the most critical part of a design (e.g. navigation, links, buttons, color codes, notifications).

Efficiency

People use a website or an app with a goal in mind. It is always my focus that the main tasks can be completed in the most efficient way possible.

Consistency

To reach the necessary familiarity and efficiency I take great care to create a consistent experience throughout. This includes everything from typography, icons, images to reusable elements.

Structure

To make navigating the app or website as intuitive as possible I use bold visual hierarchy. Everything has its place to make the user feel comfortable.

Clarity

Clarity in programming means for me to have clearly named variables and methods as well as thoughtful comments.

Flexibility

Reusable modules and clear distinction of components are the cornerstones of a flexible code base, so I put considerable emphasis on these.

Familiarity

Best practices and widely known solutions or libraries so that every developer feels at home right away.

Efficiency

Developing applications with a solid web framework and implementing clever algorithms makes for a fast application.

Consistency

Not using the latest hyped framework ensures longevity of available of resources and established best practices.

Structure

Structuring a web project according to MVC (Model/View/Controller) gives a clear guideline as to where to put what and enables easy customization.

I only work on 1-2 projects per month to ensure you my full commitment to your project.
