Hello! I am Rainer Rösing.

Senior freelance user experience & product designer, information architct of digital products. Strategic cross disciplinary thinking in a continously transforming digital industry.

Hamburg Icon based in Hamburg

Another UX guy.

Yes indeed, but...

Academically qualified.

My diploma in "Information Management and Corporate Communication" with a practical orientated mixture of IT, multimedia and marketing is the perfect fundament for my career as digital concepter.

Versatile experienced.

In the last 10 years I worked on more than 100 digital projects in all kinds of industries. Advertising, product development and user testing made me learn a lot about the strategy and process of digital creation and communication.

Efficiency driven.

I am driven by the wish to create useful and feasible results. I make this happen in every step of the design process by choosing the right tool or method and by working close with all team disciplines.

UX Expertise.

Just to make sure...

User Research

Understanding fundamental user needs, customer journeys and the product usage.

Creative Ideas

Even a long digital development process starts at some point with a creative idea.

Presentations

Conceptual ideas have to be sold in persuasive and structured presentations.

Workshops

Efficient and structured workshops with various stakeholders.

User Stories

Gathering user centered requirements by defining and clustering user stories.

Flowcharts

Visualising complex data and processes in comprehensible flowcharts.

Wireframes

Shaping rough mockups drafts as well as building detailed responsive wireframes.

Prototypes

Designs made tangible by transfering them into usable prototypes.

Project Milestones.

From around 100 projects...

eSailors UX Design Product

My UX Design product workflow?

Adobe invited me to talk in three sessions live about my experience and especially my workflow as a conceptual UX Designer. Live viewers asked a lot questions and took part in a sample project we created during these sessions.

YOUTUBE REPLAY: PART 1 | PART 2 | PART 3

It is my profession to create digital experiences with a seamless interaction between users and products or brands. Screendesigns often can’t reflect this complex conceptual work behind the scenes, and a lot of this work doesn’t end in a showable project package at all. I mostly work with Sketch for visual elements, Axure for complex prototyping and whimsical.co for flow charts and schemas.

  • Xing UX Design Product

    Messenger Product Discovery

    To improve messaging flows on the platform, I evaluated various improvements and potential features by doing a lot of user feedback sessions, a proper user research and some A/B testing. Always in close connection with the PO and the Development team.

    XING SE

  • Osram Lightelligence

    IOT Plattform, Microsite & App

    The projects with this exciting client contained a modular and flexible tech-platform system as well as a marketing mircrosite and a standalone app. The technical complexity of the whole environment was a real challenge for the interface conception.

    Service Design for students

    I designed a customer journey with the vision to enhance the plattform experience for students among all areas of XING. Based on that roadmap and user tests I`ve built up a content and onboarding world for students in a mobile first prototype.

  • Sunrise UX Design Product

    Multiscreen Smart TV

    As part of a product development team, I worked on the Android and iPad app of the Sunrise TV ecosystem first, later on the TV Box interface. A versatile multiscreen experience containing various smart technologies and services.

    CELLULAR

  • Telekom UX Design Product

    Puls Android Tablet

    As conceptual part in a scrum team I worked on the tablets interface experience with focus on the onboarding flow (including a tutorial video) and various interactive widgets, bringing the Telekom services closer to their customers.

  • Red Bull UX Design Product

    Internal Web App

    To make internal organisation management easy and even fun, a high performance web-app was built. Besides the interaction design, my main challenge was gathering all requirements in a user story mapping workshop.

    Publicis Pixelpark

  • Vodafone UX Design Product

    The first sailed Mona Lisa

    We created a microsite where it was possible to follow Lasse Klötzing’s team sailing the Mona Lisa into the sea. Live data and media from the boat was displayed and all action and social media support was documented in a social stream.

  • LSA UX Design Product

    Local Government Portal

    With the objective to bring local politics in a closer connection with the public, I worked on a relaunch and communication concept. Several workshops took place before a detailed fine concept was created for a bid invitation.

"‘Ridiculously efficient’ is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Rainer. I had the pleasure of working with Rainer only for four months at the Deutsche Telekom. Rainer expertly filled the role of UX designer and "konzepter" for Telekom Puls tablet project. He always has a creative, positive outlook and he’s good at organizing and bringing people together. I was particularly impressed by Rainer’s ability to handle even the toughest Axure prototypes. Rainer would be an asset to any team."

"I worked closely with Rainer on several projects. He possesses a keen instinct when it comes to human nature and this makes him invaluable when it comes to user experience. This combined with his in depth and always cutting edge knowledge of front end technology make Rainer a profoundly awesome UX expert. Would work with him anytime."

Never trust the establishment.
