Benjamin Fritz, Interaction Designer

For almost 3 years I've been working as a Designer for hire 🀠 In all, my total design experience spans more than 10 years though.

I sometimes write about travels and other stuff on   but more often I share my thoughts on  . Of course, you can gather visual insights about my life on  .

You can always and preferably reach me by email β€” mail@benjaminfritz.co.

Summary

My studies were based on learning the basic principles of the Bauhaus tradition – the gute Gestalt – meaning a solid grid, structure and fine typography as the foundation of every piece of my work.


I’ve worked hard ever since on building solid and beautiful interfaces for everyday people because I firmly believe in the mantra that good design is invisible to the user β€” it just works.
