Hello! I am Rainer Rösing.

A Full-Stack Digitalist focusing on User Experience and IA of Digital Products. I stand for strategic cross disciplinary thinking in a complex continously transforming digital industry.

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.


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


Efficient and structured workshops with various stakeholders.

User Stories

Gathering user centered requirements by defining and clustering user stories.


Visualising complex data and processes in comprehensible flowcharts.


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


Wireframes and designs made tangible by transfering them into usable prototypes.

"Good design solutions are not merely physical interesting but are driven by underlying ideas. An idea is a specific mental structure by which we organize, understand, and give meaning to external experiences and information. Without underlying ideas imforming their buliding, architects are merley space planners."

Project Milestones.

Selected, not complete...

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.

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."
