Welcome

Nice to have you on my portfolio website.
Here you'll learn a little about me and my skills as Sr. UX Designer.

Come on in.

About

Thanks for scrolling down! So, my name is Peter. I'm Swiss, studied in the USA and now live in Taiwan.
I'm a graduate from the MFA New Media program at the Academy of Art University, and have work experience in print and web projects. Thus, I have a wide range of skills to see thru a design project from start to finish.
My main focus lies in User Experience and User Interface design, but I also do logo design, cover social media needs and I'll design your wedding invitation if you need one.

As summarized by my friend and long-time collaborator:

Peter is a comprehensive design guru. Aside from making stuff look pretty, he looks at projects from all angles. How is this being marketed? What is the purpose of the product? How does the data structure look like? Not only does he ask these questions, he understands the quality of the answers.

More than just a pixel pusher, Peter juggles multiple projects. He manages and mentors peers. He looks down the stretch of the product roadmap prioritizing the right features. Even while taking a execution role, he keeps the leadership on target.

To put it simply, he’s the guy that gets it done.

Peter also likes mama jokes and traveling.”

Yo mama's so... eh, nevermind. Keep on scrolling.
