“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, an interaction designer who is passionate about creating engaging and interactive experiences that focus on the benefits for people. I strive for simplicity and clarity in design to do more for the user with less.

Besides designing User Interfaces and creating User Experiences, I like to experiment with technologies and code to gain new insights into the versatile and digital world and discover exciting and emerging topics in niches and new fields. My tech enthusiasm is both a defining characteristic and a strength of mine, which allows me to quickly adopt new perspectives while thinking outside the box. Nevertheless, I try not to lose sight of my roots in classic typographic design, because I see great advantages in standing out in the digital world through the professional use of typography.

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