Hello There 👋
I'm Sebastian Scheerer, a dedicated UI/UX designer and tech startup founder from Berlin, Germany. My passion lies in crafting intuitive, beautiful products that users genuinely love and engage with. Over the years, I've led design teams to create award-winning platforms that resonate deeply with users.

🎖 Achievements & Experience:

Wunderlist: As the Co-founder and Head of Design, I spearheaded the UI/UX design strategy for this cross-platform to-do list. Our commitment to aesthetic and functional design was recognized when Wunderlist was named Apple's App of the Year in 2014, and was later acquired by Microsoft.

ottonova: In 2016, I co-founded and took charge as the Head of Design for Germany's pioneering digital health insurance. At ottonova, I led the team to craft an intuitive, user-friendly platform, resulting in the industry's highest-rated health insurance in terms of customer satisfaction.

🎨 Design Philosophy & Insights:

My early journey into design started with a simple fascination for computers. While many perceived my time on the computer as mere play, I was engrossed in understanding the nuances of design and user experience, leading to my self-taught expertise in UI/UX.

From freelancing to establishing startups, my design philosophy has always centered around the user. Designing products that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also user-centric and functional has been the cornerstone of my success.

🚀 Here to Guide and Inspire:

Whether you're at the ideation phase or looking to refine your product's design, I offer insights rooted in my extensive journey of designing products that users adore.

🧠 Insights & Learnings:

My early days weren't easy. From grappling with academic challenges to working odd jobs, I've been there. But I always had a passion: building. While many thought I was just "playing" on my computer, I was actually honing my craft, learning, and creating.

Over time, I transitioned from freelancing to co-founding startups. The experiences, both good and challenging, shaped my understanding of design, user experience, and business.
