Project: UI-/UX-Design & Styleguide for Web-Release of Universal Management Suite (UMS)

Responsibilities: UI-/UX-Design (Scribbles, Prototype with Boot- strap, Visual Design with Sketch); Styleguide

Testimonial F. B., Vice President Research and Development, [...]:
“P. R. joined the [...] development team in January 2020 as an UI-/UX designer und quickly became ac- quainted with the complex topic of [...] Web Universal Management Suite (WUMS). In close collaboration with the product owner and the SCRUM team of software engineers P. helped us to carry out a modern esthetic concept for WUMS UI which became the best user interface [...] Technology ever had!
She designed a visual style including clear structuring of the contents, distinctive and understandable icons and a consistent use of colors and interactive states throughout the application. Her proposals for optimizing the user experience and her advices in implementing a CSS architecture were very helpful too. During the Covid-19 lockdown our collaboration continued smoothly, being completely remote.
In June 2020 she finished with a detailed styleguide which is an excellent basis for our further development pro- cess. We are looking forward to continuing our productive cooperation after having pulled through the Covid-19 crisis.”

Testimonial P. V., Software Architect and Scrum Master: (Translation from German)
“P. boosted the web application project to a new level. Although she joined the project at a very late stage, she tackled the full range of UX / UI design. In doing so she not only decisively improved both the user guidance and the layout. She also brought structural clarity to the HTML and SCSS structure, which enables the team to continue working successfully even after she left the project.
I would be really happy to work with P. again - preferably from the beginning.

Project: Website, Social Media, poster

Responsibilities: Overall responsibility; project management; Conception & Text; Visual Design; Photography; Coding & Programming

Testimonial W. P., 1986-2018 Head of [...] Theatre: (Translation from German)
“In 2017, P. R., a graduate communications designer, created an own website and set up a Facebook presence for the Starnberg Marionettes’ Theatre for the first time. The idea and the conceptual design came from her, but she also carried out the technical implementation in all details completely independently.
We, the ensemble, were enthusiastic about the result: the main sections with their lively design, the individual topics with their precise texts and the - wherever possible generous - imagery, the loving details - whether a lake with an alpine backdrop, a puppet in the floods, the unorthodox use of the Starnberg heraldic figure, the dive-down to the bottom of the lake to the puppets of Kasperl and the lobster and finally, deep down, to the sea monster, the “worm”.
A great advantage was that Ms. R. is not only a creative, very structured and precise web designer, but also a gifted artist and enthusiastic photographer - and has a preference for animation, video sequences and projections.”

Testimonial S. B., Journalist [...], November 13, 2017, about the puppetry website: (Translation from German)
“Anyone who ... calls up the new homepage of the [...] will literally experience a blue miracle, because if you touch the down arrow, you will travel down into the depths of Lake Starnberg like with an invisible glass elevator. On the bottom a sparkling red lobster and the puppet “Kasperl” are talking via speech bubbles ... But the lobster is only afraid that Kasperl might wake up the sea monster which has slumbered at a depth of 127 meters for centuries …”

Qualifikationen

My power is a well structured approach and deep understand- ing of needs on both sides: software-user and software-developer - bringing them together with professional User Interface Design.

Methods of Conception:

At the beginning of a new project I use to analyze the requirements and break down complex contents into a clear-structured information architecture as being the basis for layout, layers of depth and navigation through an application, always reviewing the results from the user’s perspective.
For e-learning and edutainment I create storytelling ideas to dress up informations into enjoyable nuggets.

Methods of Visual Design:

When styling an UI I mostly start speedily and quite analoguely with paper and pencil drawing near first ideas. Then I create the visual design for websites and applications with Sketch and additional tools.

Applied knowledge in fluid and responsive webdesign goes without saying. With more than 15 years oft craftmanship in smoothly transforming ideas into CSS-code I love coding CSS/ SCSS.

In my work as an UI designer a consistent visual design and well thought-out CSS-architecture flow into a logical and understandable styleguide.

Since I have become a communications designer I have worked with Adobe design-tools such as After Effects for motion design, Animate/Flash for interactive animations and building complex applications, InDesign for print layouts, Audition for sound design and of course with Photoshop.

Additional Experience:

• Editorial and technical website-services for many years
• Writing complex styleguides and documentations
• 15+ years of applied knowledge in web accessibility and its
guidelines WCAG/BITV
• Content management systems ModX, Typo3 and Word-
Press and newsletter systems Evalanche, CleverReach und
Engage
• CSS-frameworks Bootstrap and Foundation
