About Carl Neumann

I am a carer designer with extensive experience making things easy to use and look great. I have designed websites and applications for over fifteen years with small businesses and mega-corporations.

I use best practices for user experience design (UX) and user interface design (UI). I also design and develop WordPress websites.

I have been creative all of my life. During my schooling years, my favourite subjects were art and graphic design. After school and on weekends, I drew, painted, and learned to code in BASIC and C++.

I’ve worked on various client projects, including websites, mobile apps, printed marketing materials, magazines, billboards, newsletters, and more for small to large companies and start-ups.

I’m constantly seeking to improve my craft and stay updated with the latest trends and best practices in the industry.

Designing and creating great products is not just a job for me; it’s a way of life. I am fortunate to be able to do what I love every day.
