Countless nonprofit projects are out there to make our world a better place. And some of them have websites to reach more people, but creating a great user experience can be challenging:
"Who is the target group of the website?"
"What does the target group expect from the website?"
"What is the goal of the website?"
"How can this goal be achieved?"
Already little details – like a misleading button text – can have a huge impact and decide if a visitor supports your nonprofit project in the end or not. As a User Experience Designer I’m dealing with these issues every day. Long story short:
I offer free UX feedback for nonprofit projects to get the most out of their websites.
I’m Daniel Maniés, a passionate User Experience Designer with focus on digital products and services.
I live in the beautiful city of Berlin and work at DAYONE. There I have the privilege to work on great projects for companies like Volkswagen, Telekom or Deutsche Bahn.
My fascination for both design and computer technology started early on. At a technical high school I had my first coding lessons and besides I taught myself how to use graphic tools. To combine both worlds, I started studying Computer Science in Media in the snowy Black Forest.
It took me several semesters to realize that I won’t be one of these coding guys. The lack of passion bothered me and when I had a long interesting conversation with an Interaction Designer I had this aha moment: I’m one of these UX guys! This was the first time I knew what I really want to do.
So I worked as a student employee to learn more about information architecture and interaction design and wrote my bachelor thesis about the one-handed use of phablets. In the end I graduated with a plan in mind: I wanted to work on digital products and services with focus on the user – a human like you and me.
