Henning Witzel Β· Product Designer

Hi, I'm Henning

Experienced Product Designer based in Berlin – Guten Tag πŸ‘‹

My name is Henning Witzel, and I'm a Product Designer with a background in engineering. I have a passion for well-designed software products and have worked on many different ones for the past nine years. My goal is to provide meaningful and relevant user experiences by shipping products people love.

I'm currently the Head of Product Design at NewStore, an omnichannel platform that empowers store associates and connects retail stores. Our mission is to bring the joy back to retail. We enable brands to provide experiences that today's consumer expect β€” curbside pickup, contactless payments, store fulfillment, remote selling, endless aisle, and more. My team and I are part of product management, and we drive the UX strategy, scale the design process, and help others grow in design.

This website is an independent place for all my thoughts and projects. You can read my articles, see my bookshelf, take a look at my portfolio or learn something about me β€” no limitations, no algorithms, no advertisements, just a simple website.
