Hi, my name is Stefanie aka guerillagirl
I’m working as an independent designer and strategist specialized in making digital products and websites more valueable, user friendly and more fun to use for your customers but keeping also your business goals in mind.
I like products which come with worthy and good intentions and long lasting, honest and respectful client relationships, a collaborative design process and organizations, companies
Besides running my freelance business and our small design studio „The Geekettez“ together with my colleague Miss Moss, I study Psychology on a part time basis because of my interest in human behaviour, motivations and social psychology. My main interest lies in what is called „the human factor“ when it comes to Human Computer Interaction.
In 2007, after graduating in interactive media design from University of applied sciences Darmstadt and Cork Insitute of Technology (CIT), I started working as a web designer and part time freelancer and later as an online art director for agencies before going full time freelance in 2011 with our studio launch.
