Simon Reif

Freelance User Experience Designer based in Hamburg, Germany

I help agencies, companies and startups to build & advance digital products such as websites, mobile apps and tv apps/software applications. With a background in design and more than 10 years of experience in crafting for the web I provide strong creative, problem-solving concept capabilities. I love working in small teams but I'm also available for remote ux support.


I'm available for new projects (onsite/remote). If you have an app/website project you think I could help with, then get in touch:

As an experienced UX freelancer I always strive for the best possible outcome between business goals and an intuitive, useable product. With a strong background in the field of design and technology I involve myself at all stages of a project and guide the process from a concept perspective. In the past years I've worked on diverse projects like responsive websites, large-scale platform relaunches, tablet magazines, mobile apps for Android and iOS, TV interfaces and concepts for connected devices. I'm also collaborating with smaller design studios and software development companies.
