Petra Quilitz is a Digital Product Designer who has never worked a day in her life.

UX systems and digital user journey strategies for Allianz, Telefónica, Telecom, BMW or e-on : Not work. Collaboration with  stakeholders and teams on b2b, b2c and b2e projects for Santander, Pro7Sat1 or Canal+: Not work. User-centric wireframes, flows, high- and low fidelity MVP prototypes across multiple devices for startups or world brands: Not work. Making the world more usable is not work, it’s a passion. 

But what about the boring UX work? The construction work flows, shipping and agricultural logistics, or infrastructure and data tools?  Many designers prefer to work on the things they use themselves, like design tools, communication and social media apps or entertainment services. Petra prefers the not-so-boring-at all work where you can solve more complex problems for more complex audiences. 

Petra is currently available for not working. Get in touch. Or visit LinkedIn. Petra lives near Munich, Germany.

Give Petra three words about some idea and you’ll end up with a substantial and quick solution, both conceptual and graphical. The quality has never failed to satisfy team nor client. It’s also fascinating how one can keep up humour even under low conditions which has a huge positive impact on the team.”
