About

My name is Torsten Mess and I'm a user interface designer and web developer from Munich.
I studied computer science at the Technical University in Ilmenau, with a focus on software ergonomics and information visualization.

With over 8 years of experience designing, designing & developing web applications as well as shops, I have in-depth skills and the expertise to design and implement state-of-the-art web applications to the highest quality standards. My affinity to user-friendly and attractive user interfaces as well as my attention to detail characterize my work.
