From the conception to the finished result, we could rely on Katharina's intuition for our target group. She was a good listener during the research phase and a real 'doer' when it came to implementing the design. The responsive user interface design that Katharina created meets our expectations for an intuitive and accessible user experience. The new frontend gives the platform a modern shine and underlines the values of the community. Translated with (free version)
