Karin Christen

Interaction Designer / Director Switzerland

Karin Christen is our Interaction Designer setting her focus on the user’s perspective. Also, she is the person in charge when it comes to all sorts of managing aspects in our business.

What she does

Karin does a lot of prototyping. She scribbles concepts, turns them into interactive prototypes, and validates them through user tests.

She either works on applications with usability issues or helps out to start a project from scratch. Our clients hire her, normally to join their own project team, with the goal of creating a good user experience on their web application.

One of her key strengths is to analyse the desires, requirements, and restrictions our clients have, in order to afterwards suggest a procedure which fits both the project and the team in the best possible way.

What does she say

What does she write

Why we are a remote team

In a typical office environment, it’s easy to walk over to your teammate’s desk when you have a question or need help. But since we’re a remote team, we don’t see each other physically. Karin shares our story of why we became a remote team and the challenges we deal with day by day.

Interviews

“I truly believe that it makes me a better designer and a more sensible human being, as I tend to see and appreciate the creative solutions people come up with in other parts of the world, even though many tend to have far more constraints than we have at home.” – The Guardian
