“Pay attention to what users do, not what they say.”

Jakob Nielsen
A Memoji that looks like me.
Hi there 👋

Who am I?

I’m Lars Mäder, an interaction designer who is passionate about creating engaging and interactive experiences that focus on user interfaces and experience design for the benefit of people. I strive for simplicity and clarity in design to do more for the user with less.

As broad as the industry is, I also like to discover new things in different and new areas, like experimenting with technologies and code to learn new things and stay up to date. Still, I try not to lose sight of my roots in classic typographic design, because I see great benefits in applying them to digital products with adapted rules.

When I’m not behind a screen, I’m meeting friends, taking photos, listening to my favorite podcast, or staying home and pursuing hobbies like drawing, reading or sports
