Professional Background

I started specializing in digital media when still at university. My experience with mobile design in device branding as well as Symbian/Java applications and WAP internet date back as far as 2004. I particularly enjoy tasks that require a certain technical background knowledge, so as to reach the optimum of usability, user experience and design within the given restrictions of the medium. In summer 2007 I decided to go freelance and have since been working for various agencies and companies in the mobile sector. My portfolio comprises conception, design, inforamtion architecture and re-structuring of web content for transcoding as well as self demoting CSS-concepts for rendering in mobile applications or brower based mobile portals.
