Hey, I'm Dominik. This is my story

Hey, I'm Dominik. This is my story

______________________

Since I was a kid I was always questioning things, always asking myself why things work the way they work and how they could be improved. I grew up in a small village close to the german alps so I pretty much had nothing better to besides school than teaching myself the basics of motion, graphic and UI design during the nighttime. I started getting more and more passionated about this whole design process and decided that I want to make this hobby of mine to my job.

After dropping out I started working for the at that time aspiring design agency COBE in Munich. After my first years as a junior at COBE I got the privilege to manage my own client projects independently and mentor other juniors.

Almost after four years in the agency business I wanted to get deeper insights into products instead of handling multiple clients at the same time, so I decided to start working as a Senior UX designer at Holidu, one of the biggest vacation home search engines worldwide. Here at Holidu I'm currently working on building a complete new branding, design language and experience.

Experience

 

 

 

Fundstack - Product Designer

AUG 2017 - CURRENT
 

Fundstack was a startup from scratch, the whole team was remote and communicated through Slack, InVision, etc... My part was the whole design part from first logo iterations and wireframes to the release of the mobile and desktop apps.

 

Holidu - Product Designer 

APR 2017 - APR 2018 
 

When I came to Holidu, all they had was a couple mockups without much UX in mind done by an external branding agency. My time at Holidu was mostly dedicated to building a design team, defining workflows, structures and based on that creating a whole new Holidu experience, social media presence and design culture within the company.

 

COBE - Product Designer

FEB 2014 - APR 2017
 

I was lucky with this one. At beginning COBE was pretty much a tiny room filled with 5 guys hustling day and night. A couple years later it was one of the most watched design studios in Germany. In my early days at COBE my mission was to create and maintain a social media presence to attract. After my first two years I got to independently work on client Projects with a small team.
