About me

My name is Sebastian Schulz, a UX designer with roots in Magdeburg, where I was born in 1982. After completing my industrial design studies in Magdeburg, I worked as a product and UI designer in the Stuttgart region for five years. Since 2012, I have been living and working in Berlin. Here, I have deepened and expanded my expertise in UX design, continuously developing my skills in shaping digital solutions. Besides my work as a designer, I am also active as a freelance artist and have participated in various exhibitions.
