Jerry Jäppinen

I do product design, development, user research and consulting in diverse teams, for a diverse set of clients. HTML5 is my bread and butter. After over 9 years of UX design in web, mobile & games projects, I still create cool things while teaching myself and others every day.

I currently work as a senior designer in Berlin, Germany. I'm also available for interesting freelance projects either locally or remotely.
