Fictional project Cotardo is a insurance company specialized in travel insurance. They want to boost their business and are developing an app that can help people find the right insurance and provide help when it comes to an emergency abroad. For this project I concentrated on two user stories: A customer is planning a trip and wants to make sure the insurance is optimal. A customer is traveling in vietnam and needs assistance because of a medical issue. I also made some assumptions for both user stories: Both are existing customers Existing customers have an account with the company than can be used for login Network coverage or wifi is available Being an enthusiastic traveller myself, I was able to mostly draw from experiences I had and the help or assistance I would have loved to have before travelling or when being abroad. Story 1 To find the right insurance for a trip the app features an assistant that asks two big questions: Where do you want to go and when? If the exact time is not set, one can choose a timeframe instead. With these two questions answered the app shows insurance suggestions and highlights the biggest features. […]

The agency I work for was tasked in creating concept and design for Hennigsdorf, a city north of and just outside of Berlin. The city wanted a more modern look and feel while giving the editors of the site some freedom in displaying their content. It should stay a comprehensive source for all things concerning the city both politically and city life.
The design is based on a 12 column grid and making good use of that especially on the front page and entry pages. These pages use content boxes that can be arranged freely to suit the intent of the page. The hero-image on the front page can either be static or have several slides and both furnishes the site with a modern appeal and serves as a central advertising space for the municipality.
I was lead designer on this project and worked on the concept, multiple site templates and iconography. Typography and colors are based on the cities design guidelines.
The design was then implemented with a customized theme by an external provider.
The project is currently in it's last stages and will go online beginning of november.

Tamyca Corporate Carsharing
This application was developed for the Aachen based carsharing company tamyca, to extend their current offering from private to corporate carsharing and fleet management. These new offerings added far more complexity to the existing use flow and therefore got outsourced to a new app. I started with a detailed mapping of the necessary features, to ensure that the new system would be easy to use and understand for a new user. The use flow map got translated into wireframes, to structure the hierarchy of the interface elements. From there I designed mock ups for testing purposes and finally created pixel perfect assets for development.

Deutsches Historisches Museum
For the German Historic Museum I worked on the multimedia stations and the welcoming screens, as well as a responsive e-Mail newsletter sent out every other week. The multimedia stations display information as part of the current exhibitions. Visitors can interactivly explore timelines and browse multimedia content telling i.e. the stories of contemporary witnesses. The welcoming screens and newsletter were redesigned as a part of a CMS change. The new layout allows for more flexibility concerning content integration and is easier to handle for the museum personel.

The GESOBAU is a real estate company which is half owned by the city of Berlin. Since many people are moving to Berlin a lot more apartments and houses have to be built to accomodate these people.
This website was developed to specifically inform about these projects. The main focus of the page is the presentation of the individual developments and showcasing their key figures. When the objects become available for rent the site informs about sizes, cost and availability of the single apartments. The possibility to sign up for a projects watch list, so that potential tenants are informed about availability, is currently in development.
I developed the current design from functionality sketches up to mock ups and supervised the development process in the later stages. At the moment I am working on the design for the watch list in both front- and backend.
