Simon Reif

Freelance User Experience Designer | Hamburg + Freiburg

I help agencies, startups and larger companies to build & advance digital products such as websites, mobile apps, tv app interfaces or software applications. With a background in design and more than 15+ years of experience in crafting for the web I provide strong creative, problem-solving concept capabilities. I love working in small teams but I'm also available for remote ux support.


I'm available for new projects (Hamburg and Freiburg or remote). If you have an app/website project you think I could help with, then get in touch:

As an experienced ux freelancer I always strive for the best possible outcome between business goals and an intuitive, useable product. With a strong background in the field of design and technology I involve myself at all stages of a project and guide the process from a concept perspective. In the past years I've worked on diverse projects like responsive websites, large-scale platform relaunches, tablet magazines, mobile apps for Android and iOS, TV interfaces and concepts for connected devices. I'm also collaborating with smaller design studios and software development companies.

I'm co-organizing Hamburg's Interaction Design conference This-happened Hamburg. I have partnered with PurePhoto Los Angeles to make a selection of my photographical work as large format prints available: buy prints. You can find a selection of my photographical travel stories on exposure.
