Effective, visually appealing data vis and websites

Person Kristin Baumann. Black and white. Frontal facing. Smiling

Hi, I’m Kristin Baumann.

In my freelance work, I combine relevant and meaningful data with problem-focused yet appealing design and state-of-the-art programming to create effective data visualizations and websites.

After finishing my Computer Science degree, I worked in data, dev, design, and product teams around the world taking on all the different perspectives of a developer, designer, product manager, data analyst, user researcher, and team lead.

This equipped me with a proactive and collaborative mindset, a high appreciation for reliable communication, and a focus on solving problems and creating value.

Occasionally I share my experiences in conference or meetup talks.
