I create Websites and Webapps. I design them and develop the frontend. I believe that a usable product can and should look beautiful to achieve a maximum of positive user experience. After working a couple of years in various web design agencies in Switzerland, I decided to go freelance in October 2012 and later on I co-founded the Web agency required gmbh where we've worked for clients such as ricardo.ch, SBB or Hotelplan.
Pretty bold statement, now is it?
Well, it's also a wordplay, because my company is called required+.
At required+, we offer a range of services.
Whether Interaction Design, user experience and testing, or a clean visual website that works on all devices, we focus the screen, no matter its size. We are proud to develop elegant solutions with a keen focus on the end user’s needs for clients of all magnitudes. Designing products that solve real problems is pure excitement to us.
From strategic help and coaching to entire web applications, we help our clients succeed with their digital projects. We integrate with existing teams or run along as agency: we adjust to fit just right, depending on the clients’ goal.
Have a look at our services and see how we might be a fit in supporting you in your digital development over at required.ch.
The key to a usable product is knowing your user. What are their goals & needs? Once I know that, I can focus on the user flow. What steps are necessary to achieve your business goals while satisfying your user.
A clean interface gets out of the way and doesn't distract. Nothing flashy or over-designed. A good design should represent you and help your users. Harmony and balance are powerful tools to achieve that.
Creating a design that works on all screen sizes requires more than just creating a separate version for a phone, tablet and a desktop screen. It's all about creating a style and behavior which works consistently across all devices and sizes. That's why I consider the "act" of Responsive Design not as a single task, but the bridge betweend Design & Frontend.
For a responsive design to work well in all environments, it's important to know your ways around the frontend. Having a background in frontend, I live and breathe responsive design, always pushing the boundaries of the frontends and interfaces I design and build.
Design, Frontend-Development AND WordPress? You must think I'm a Unicorn. I'm not, personally I just dabble. But through my company required.ch, we can offer theme, plugin and custom WordPress development.
Having worked a couple of years in an email marketing agency, I also know my way around html emails. Although this isn't my main focus anymore, I still design & develop the occasional responsive email campaign.
