Hello! I am Rainer Rösing.

Senior Freelance User Experience & Interaction Designer, Information Architect and Digital Creative. For me it all just means strategic thinking in a continuosly changing 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 6 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.

Digital Expertise.

Just to make sure...


Understanding fundamental user needs, customer journeys and business objectives.

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.

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.
