What I do

Annika Hamann

Hi, my name is Annika and I’ve been freelancing as a UI/UX designer in Berlin and NYC. It’s my passion to create meaningful, intuitive and enjoyable solutions that are driven by user needs and content. Even though being a freelancer, I like to work closely in teams, as from my experience communication is key in innovative products.

I appreciate clients that are open to doing early stages user tests in order to match their product to the real consumer needs. Feel free to contact me with exciting new short-term or long-term projects!
