Gabriel Mueller — About

About

Hello there, I am Gabriel.

My passion is to design product experiences which create a positive impact on peoples' lives. My design methods are highly influenced by a human-centered design approach which focuses on understanding needs and mental models in order to find desirable solutions for a given problem or opportunity.

I have professional and academic experience in Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Austria. If you don't see me working on creative projects, you might catch me doing kettlebell swings, cooking hummus for my friends and family or taking photographs.
