Jerry Jäppinen

Berlin, DE

I do concept design, product development, user research and consulting in diverse teams, for a diverse set of clients. HTML5 is my bread and butter. After 10 years of UX design in web, mobile & games projects, I still create cool things while teaching myself and others every day.

I currently work in product design in Berlin, Germany. I'm also available for interesting freelance projects either locally or remotely.
