Karl Reitzig UI UX Design

What I do

I'm passionate about creating technology in innovative and emerging areas like UbiComputing that are more usable and delightful by aligning business goals and user needs.

I rely on UCD techniques like user and competitor research; qualitative, empirical, and predictive evaluations; and IA design to give teams actionable and data-driven insights and recommendations that create a more user-centred and successful product.

Drawing from my extensive experience in visual design I also strive to create delightful user interfaces that help users to accomplish their goals more easily. And by drawing on my skills in Front-End Development, I aim to ensure that those designs always remain actionable and accessible.

About me

Growing up in South Africa, I had a very artistic and technical family, which has greatly influenced who I am today. I fell in love with photography and graphic design at a young age and this opened the door for me to explore areas like digital marketing and website design which has become the foundation for much of what I do today.

I did digital design as a freelancer for a variety of small businesses which I took abroad with me. My love for adventure drew me to several countries like China, Thailand, and Vietnam where I also began teaching students ranging from kindergarten to working professionals. This was a very special time in my life where I interacted with many cultures and saw interesting places. This also helped me developed many soft skills that helped me to become a better designer.

As the world changed in 2020, I decided to settle down and on my UX design career to create products that can improve people's lives. I returned to SA to settle down (for now) and explore my own country while I joined a global design consultancy as a Senior UX Designer where I create holistic solutions for large corporate clients alongside my talented team.
