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.
