Hey, I am Helmar, and I'm obsessed with helping teams make progress, getting them some spin, and bullet-proofing their mission with research toward experiences that are enriching people's lives.
I'm a Product Designer with a focus on research & workshop facilitation based in Berlin. I have 14 years of combined experience in creating meaningful outcomes for customers & businesses alike.
My roots as a professional chef always made me hold up my value for team collaboration and process, so when moving into IT and discovering Design Sprints, I was sold on the concept in the blink of an eye and I decided to take on an in-depth UX training in 2020.
Ever since I collaborated with teams in different domains and contexts where I found my niche in projects that exposed me to research & workshops.
Now that D&AD Shift allowed me to peak into the creation of narrative experiences in marketing, I am on the lookout for a position as a Junior / Intern where I can grow into the role of a Strategist & Facilitator.
We've been invited to a "Brief in a Day" challenge, where I could help my team to set a strong foundation with research to inform the strategy & concept of our marketing campaign. Learn more here.
#Facilitation #Research #Marketing #1day
I was briefed by the UX Research Lead and conducted 200+ in-store interviews in Hamburg & Metzingen in just 4 days as part of a mixed methods survey. The work included follow up questions, vocal notes, observation of customers, and a report.
#NDA #Research #Freelance #7days
In the context of an ongoing hackathon for fun & employee education, I was honored to take the lead in designing a customized workshop for my colleagues in collaboration with a Junior UX Designer. The workshop consisted of Hallway Testing, Analysis, Priotization, and several witty Energizers.
