Design portfolio - Portrait - Julia Mendrok

Hello, I’m Julia. A forward-thinking designer currently working at Deutsche Bahn AG, Anhalt University of Applied Sciences.

Good design is (in)visible,

because the design craft evolved from a purely aesthetic benefit to a strategic, business-oriented, and often invisible foundation. The world is changing and design has become the tool we use to shape our future. I help purpose-driven organizations gain this foundation through conceptual design, branding, and UX/ UI design to make a difference.

Why is good design important?

Be smart and develop your idea into a viable integrated design concept using prototyping methods

Unclear goals are one of the most common causes of project failure

The GMP (German Society for Project Management) lists unclear requirements and goals as one of the most common reasons for project failure. A viable design concept helps you avoid failure by providing direction to all team members and is making future decisions easier. In other words, developing a viable concept that establishes the overall design intent will save you money in the long run and ensure that your project is innovative and marketable.

Stay on the market by fulfilling the user’s needs

88% of users are less likely to return to a website or an app after a bad experience

Judgments on the credibility of a website are 75% based on website aesthetics. Several reputable research companies have shown a positive ROI in user experience with various industry studies. A famous quote says that “Every dollar spent on UX brings in between $2 and $100 dollars in return. “ According to this billions are lost by businesses due to poor UX. Make sure to get it right from the beginning, because first impressions are 94% design-related.

Get recognized and turn visitors into loyal customers

Attention is the new currency, and a brand helps you attract it

With social media, well-designed branding is more important than ever, because strong branding is more than a consistent visual identity or a logo. It is the identity of your entire business and creates a personality that your customers and employees can identify with. It sets you apart from a crowded market and lowers your advertising costs in the long run. In fact, you’d be foolish not to use this advantage to build trust in your business.

Design services I offer to help you and your business:

Conception

Sometimes you don’t even know what the problem is. Nothing works anymore and nobody is interested in your product. I can help you use design thinking methods to find out if it’s a design flaw that’s causing the problems.

Branding

Your customer numbers fluctuate wildly. Your employees are just doing a random job. I can help you with visual design creating a brand identity that builds a stronger relationship with your customers and your employees will stay loyal to.

UX/ UI Design

Visitors on your website leave after a few seconds or your app they just downloaded is immediately uninstalled. I can help you with design methods to create a good user experience and user interface, which converts your visitors into returning users with a higher engagement rate.

Coaching

Hiring a professional designer is too expensive. Instead, you’ve decided to become a maker who can do it on his own. Well, that’s great! As a good coach, I support independence and assist you whenever you need advice.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I write in the request?

Your name and contact information.
What do you need help with?
By when should it be ready.
Link to some data, if any available.

What does your service cost?

Since the costs are very individual depending on the size and duration of the project, there is no fixed price. I will create an individual offer after the preliminary analysis.

How long does it take?

The duration also depends individually on the project. This will be taken into account in the offer.

How will we work together?

The cooperation can take place online, or (depending on the distance) in person. This will be arranged on an individual basis.
