The Geekettez is a design studio & user experience consultancy based in Mannheim and Berlin.

Mission statement

Communication is first and foremost about humans, which is why we focus on your audiences needs, goals, empathy, and on building trust.
Our research and design methods help us identify and comprehend these goals, which enables us to make better products and services. We help you shaping the interactions between you and your customers or target groups by creating user centered and individual experiences, which we think is the best method to engage a human being.
We have successfully completed projects for small businesses but also for global companies such as mozilla and crytec. Let us help you too give your users an experience they will enjoy.

Our team is slick & slim

The Geekettez is a design studio that was founded in 2011 by Jennifer Moss and Stefanie Kegel because we discovered a common believe: digital products can only be made better if the experience for the humans using the product is enhanced. We also believe that a tight-knit team can achieve this goal better than a single designer.

We specialize in UX consulting and design, art direction for digital media and GUI design for web based projects and applications.

We both have worked for a number of clients from various fields and have helped create successful products such as online shops, integrated digital campaigns, localized corporate websites or mobile consumer apps. We help our clients get their message across by understanding their business and making it accessible to their target groups – no matter how complex.

Because we have teamed up with a number of talents, who complement our services we can implement large scale digital projects and host workshops while keeping our boutique studio charm: agile, lean & personal.

Jennifer Moss is an art director for digital media & a user experience designer, who went from school to freelance within her first year of working. She founded her business Miss Moss Design in 2006 and has since been working with clients from all over the world.

“Growing up my dream jobs were „Simpsons couch gag designer“ and later „movie title sequence designer“: creating short, entertaining summaries of a larger story. And even though I studied film I ended up in the digital world. Today I concentrate on user centered design, helping clients get their stories across in digital media while providing a story that is not only comprehensible but also pleasurable for „the user“.”

She has spoken about workflow, the liberal power of the internet and various UX subjects at events such as TED Ignite, World Usability Day and Webmondays and has been featured in Page Magazine and weave (R.I.P).

If she is not reading comics or watching Sci-Fi movies she can be found on the roller derby track with her team the Rhein-Neckar Delta Quads. A league she helped found in 2014.

Stefanie is specialized in UX strategy and interactive design, helping her clients in creating user interfaces for applications and websites that are easy and fun to use, with an eye for both: business goals and customer needs.
She started working as a webdesigner and online art director for agencies after graduating in interactive media design from University of applied sciences Darmstadt and Cork Insitute of Technology in 2007 before going full time freelance.
Stefanie comes with a solid experience in frontend technology and got in the UX Direction as digital task based products began to emerge more and more. Because of her deep interest in human behaviour, motivation and social interaction she started a part time course to study psychology on top at the University in Hagen to dive deeper in human computer interaction topics. Statistics are now her favorite new hobby (just kidding).
