Hi. I‘m Max Bucher, a Senior UX Architect, based in Frankfurt, Germany. I’ve been creating and shaping user experiences for 10+ years now, in the light of digital transformation and agile product development.
From mobile apps and digital service tools, to large-scale portals and multi-market platform relaunches. I've been working and pitching for clients and brands across most industries, with a focus on Automotive, Mobility, and Financial Services.

  • Synthesizing UX artifacts from the research and analysis phase, e.g. in the form of Personas, Use Cases or User Journeys, to establish the UX strategy.
  • Preparation, conduction and evaluation of various workshop formats.
  • Gathering, analyzing and refining functional requirements - with stakeholders and key specialist departments, as well as designers and developers.
  • Fleshing out wireframes as key process artifacts - generally in iterative, interdisciplinary loops. Using Axure RP team projects, or Sketch with InVision or Zeplin.
  • Establishing component libraries, template systems and UX workflows for consistency and synergies, especially pivotal in the context of large-scale projects and scattered teams.
  • Building interactive prototypes - from lo-fi to hi-fi elaborations, e.g. with Axure RP.
  • Framing thorough concept documentation and specification - if required by the IT.
  • Extracting and defining the minimum viable product (MVP) from the vision concept - alternatively enhancing the MVP towards product vision.
  • Integrating UX effectively into agile product development cycles, e.g. into a User Story-based Scrum process, as well as debating concepts and prototypes with stakeholders.
