Benjamin Fritz, User Experience Design Manager at Vodafone
For almost 6 years I worked as a Designer for hire 🤠 In all, my total design experience spans more than 10 years though. Just recently I joined Vodafone permanently as User Experience Design Manager.
You can always and preferably reach me by email — firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 logical and beautiful interfaces for everyday people because I firmly believe in the mantra that good design is invisible to the user — it just works.
2020 - Present
Since August 2020 I work for Vodafone in the Design Chapter as User Experience Design Manager.
2014 - 2020
At the end of 2014 I finally started to work for different clients as a freelancing Senior Interaction Designer until August, 2020.
2013 - 2014
At Tweek my main responsibility was the UX & UI of the showcase iOS App and designing for sub-contractors of the company but after some time I was also helping out in various front-end tasks like creating and maintaining the weekly newsletter, editing the landing page and subpages.

Ogilvy CommonHealth Spain
During my Erasmus semester in Madrid, Spain I worked 3 months in the healthcare unit of Ogilvy as an intern, where my tasks involved animation, motion design, banner advertising and editing promotional videos mostly for Cialis.
From concept or prototype of an app to the layout of a multi-page website – if you can touch or click on a screen, I take care of that.
All the things you expect from a traditional graphic designer get happily tackled, too:
Icon Design, Illustrations, Corporate Identity,…
Although I'm a trained designer my knowledge also spans development with HTML, CSS and basic jQuery.
