I am Hendrik, an interface designer inspired by minimalism and people. Currently, I work at YARA creating sustainable products for web and mobile.
A self-taught and educated User Interface Designer with a focus on User Experience and Usability. Before I got interested in designing apps and websites, I visited a high school with a technical focus where I learned server administration and programming skills in Java. On the side, I volunteered in the gaming industry with community teams and patching games and caring for the community, especially for the Gothic series and THQNordic. This work continues till today.
When I finished school, I moved from a small town in northern Germany to Berlin and started an internship at the gaming magazine gamona.de. We worked on a complete redesign for the own magazine website and created advertisements for well-known clients at Gamescom Cologne with the team.
After one year, I started my university journey and studied print and media technology (B.Eng) at Beuth University of Applied Sciences Berlin and building up a small freelancing life on the side. While still in university, I managed to get my first clients and pass the tests to become a licensed instructor (IHK AEVO). I graduated with a thesis about User Experience and Usability.
Since then, I have worked as a full-time freelancer and consultant. In 2019 I joined YARA GmbH & Co. KG as a full-time Senior UI/UX designer.
