I'm Niels,
UX Designer
from Hamburg.


Design Process

I'm following the user experience design process, which is user-centric and best suited to achieve a positive user experience. It is also iterative, flexible and especially suitable for agile development. It is based on the principles of ISO 9241 for designing human-computer interaction and guidelines for improving the usability of digital products.

During the redesign of the phototherapy lamp I was responsible for the whole user interface. This included the ergonomic design of the analog controls as well as the user interface design of the LCD display of the lighting unit.


I designed the User Interface for the startup "commentaro". The platform offers the possibility to comment selected sports videos on your own. Check it out.

About me

Niels Meier

For more than 15 years I've been part of the IT industry. After working in the eCommerce and Medical Tech industry, I've been a freelance UX Designer in various companies since 2016. As a facilitator for User Experience i'm working user-centric. I am mainly a permanent member of a project team and am responsible for all steps of the UX design process - but I also take on partial steps. By collaborating with other UX experts, I avoid bottlenecks in the various process phases.
