About Carsten Rieger
UX/UI/CX Web Designer & Brand Champion and 21x IRONMAN Triathlete

Carsten Rieger is an Award Winning UX/UI/Web Designer, Brand Champion, Digital Psychology Specialist, and Deliver World-Class Visions for Leading Brands, Digital Marketer and an Elite athlete. A 21 x IRONMAN Triathlon Finisher.

I create opportunities by connecting people and businesses to each other around the world.
That’s a powerful challenging concept. One I eagerly dive into headfirst every day. As an accomplished, successful ecommerce visionary, web designer and branding champion I have had the privilege to serve multile prestige and respected "Global Fortune 100 and 500" brands alike.

My journey in digital media started as a Web Designer working for a humble yet extremely powerful and far reaching small web design and web hosting agency, over the years gradually transitioning into the role of UX Design visionary.

Why the transition to Web Human Centered Design, User Experience (UX) Design?
I have always enjoyed engaging both the creative and analytical part of my brain. Creating a great experience is about research both analytically measuring and reviewing behavior funnels and recordings, but also gathering key feedback to make an experience more rewarding with each new design change.

Passion for life
Striving to achieve to live a balanced work and fitness lifestyle, has lead me to become an established Internationally ranked Elite Ironman Endurance Triathlete. Which comprises of 140.6 mile. A Swim 2.4 miles, Cycle 112 miles, Run 26.2 miles. All executed in a single day sports event.

His approach to UX/UI is not only unique due to his vast experience, but he truly thinks outside the box and many times he even questions if the box has to exist. It's always fun and a pleasure to work with him. You are awesome Carsten!

Carsten was a key player in influencing creative change to the digital landscape of our UX team. He was a quintessential player in producing our open forum discussions on user journey, UI, UX, consumer behavior, and wasn't afraid to think out of the box. What I most enjoyed about working with Carsten is that he brought not only a ton of experience to the table, and to the team, but that he was able to produce creative and unique designs in a moments notice.
