20five App

Together with two friends I developed an app to support volleyball tournaments. It was my task to sketch and design the user interface as well as develop parts of the front end. Observations and usability testing helped us improve the User Experience incrementally.

As two hidden heroes, Pete and Rob’s adventures are documented in stop-motion movies. I was happy to develop an Android App dedicated to their cause, but I am currently not working on the project anymore.

About

My name is Moritz, I am a UX Designer. I currently work at bestbytes, a software manufacturer in Munich. Recently, we designed and developed the new Globus online store.

Background

I studied media informatics at the LMU Munich, which gave me a strong technical foundation. New technologies come to me easily; as does communication with developers to get the most out of an idea.

Design process

I believe that the user-centered-design process is an important key for successful products. Therefore I include the voice of the user in the product as early as possible. My methods include evaluating existing data, comparing competitors using heuristic evaluation, sketching new ideas as well as building low- and high-fidelity prototypes.

Focus

I love usability testing of prototypes as well as of existing products. When planning, executing and analyzing usability studies I can rely on my experience of more than 150 test sessions.
