User Experience Design is more than pretty pixels. Good design can reduce frustration, gain trust and support people, businesses and organizations in achieving their goals. Berlin based Stefanie Kegel works since 2007 in the design field as a UX practitioner and consultant and is Partner at the Geekettez Design Studio. Recently she helped mozilla to shape a speech recognition system, evaluated the design of a smart light app from a UX point of view and helped to develop a user-centered design strategy for the IG Metall Jugend.
