Lab Study // Paper Prototype // Workshops

Dept. of Justice and Security of Basel-Stadt

Before rebuilding their intranet we got commissioned to evaluate the current one in a pre-project and help the IT department plan their approach for a redesign. In this work example I will focus on some detailed findings and how they influenced the proposed solution.

Consulting and Talks


I love to share what I’ve learned so far. If your company is new to UX I can help you craft your own UX process and show your team members how it works in hands on workshops. Or if you’re a Product Owner and would like to know more about the benefits UX offers you.

I provide both one day trainings aswell as regular coaching and consulting.
Let’s get in touch to see how I can help you build more useful stuff.

Besides Consulting I enjoy passing on my knowledge in talks and small workshops. My topics range from UX and DesignOps in general to how to apply specific methods or build Design Systems. So far I’ve spoken at

What others say

Here are some quotes from people I worked with

The workshops where very well conducted and the results prove that it was well worth the effort. To be able to observe participants interact with the fictional interface of our paper prototype and solve tasks was an exciting experience. In my opinion such workshops have to be a standard part of any of our future projects.

Tim is dedicated to his work and pursues his objectives in a enthusiastic way. His engaging nature inspired both managers and colleagues to try out new ways.
— Bruno Krieger / Development Team Leader at IOZ AG
The UX study showed us the biggest flaws our intranet has from a user’s perspective. The paper prototype helped us to quickly gain insight into how our users navigate the intranet and draw conclusions for the new solution.
— Martin Zimmermann / Assistant Head of Services at Department of Justice and Security of Basel-Stadt / on a UX pre-project for a new intranet
I worked with Tim on a Hololens application for a large swiss university.
He works creatively, has many fresh ideas and he brings the process and the perseverance along with him to forge the good ideas into tangible experiences. He helped us tremendously with the project in his role as UX designer and proved to be an valuable asset throughout the process.
