In the last 15 years I've been working on a large variety of projects in the field of human computer interaction (HCI) - with a specific focus on HCI in an increasingly merging real and virtual world: From research, design and development of prototypes related to mobile HCI, image recognition and augmented reality, to UX aspects of mobile apps and web applications in the industry for thousands of users.
I founded and established the topic User Experience on my own initiative at Ergon Informatik AG, one of Switzerland's leading providers of customised software solutions and products, repeatedly awarded best employer in Switzerland in its category. My work ranged from founding, scaling and leading the UX team, to the introduction of User Centered Design (UCD) and Lean UX methods and processes. I have also been hands-on involved with UX consulting, UX research, UX design and visual design work in a large variety of client projects.
Below are just a few impressions of my personal work (with a focus on UX design and visual design) from 20+ projects until 2016. Since 2017 my focus is mostly on AR/applied AI applications. Applied methods vary dependent on the project and context, but typical ones comprise: contextual inquiries, interviews, workshops, surveys, affinity diagrams, personas and scenario descriptions, various forms of prototypes and usability tests, interaction design, style guides, visual design and animation design.
