Hej! My name is Nikkel
I'm Just Another F***ing Designer.

I am a human-centred & product-oriented designer from Bremen / Hamburg, Germany, working at XING. I founded the Design Made For You studio and created the Unstuck Map. I write and speak a lot about designing products, specifically how to think in products, about UX strategy and how to start a digital business. I am passionate about bringing Product Thinking to the world of product development to see more successful products tailored to people’s needs.
