What people say
Hans is a true interactive professional who brings the dedication, creativity and passion to the role. He brings a unique combination of creativity and technology to an organization combining his ability to see the strategic planning with tactical execution. It is my pleasure to recommend Hans for an interactive / creative role.
- Frank Lallos (Chief Financial Officer, Vantage Deluxe World Travel)
Hans often says, ‘The product must be useable, useful, and engaging to users.’ and everything he does is towards that goal. Sketching concepts on napkins and using cartoon software to storyboard, he has a fun way of approaching “work.” While having fun, he sets expectations high and won’t settle for anything less from himself or others.
- Robin Brandenburg (Director of Momentum and Innovation, Six Red Marbles)
Hans brings a global and highly creative perspective to any project. He has a strong understanding of process and knows what it takes to lead a usability team to improve the user experience. I am impressed by Han’s ability to analyze and strategically formulate improved interaction models, build highly effective visual libraries and online style guides for global sites, and work with development teams to construct the most optimal information architecture.
- Jill Campbell (VP of Product Management, eBusiness, Monster Worldwide)
I worked with Hans on over fifty projects while at Monster Worldwide. Throughout our relationship Hans displayed leadership, honesty, integrity, and clear vision into customer needs. Not only does Hans teach macro and micro user experience techniques, he displays masterful development of industry networking, corporate politic agility, and team maturation. I highly recommend Hans Wendland to any employer or employee who have the opportunity to cross paths with such a dynamic individual.

- Zayera Khan (UX consultant, Accenture)
I have worked with Hans Wendland on numerous projects since 1997 throughout Europe and the United States. These projects were very diverse in their business and technological requirements and the time to market was always an issue on which he delivers. Being on a project with Hans was an assurance of working in conjunction with an honest worker/leader, who is as sharp as a pin, accumulates knowledge quickly, gathers the business requirements, and moves through scope/definition and marries the business goals with user requirements and customer satisfaction. Hans is a top designer and has the very unique quality of being both artistic and techy. He is also an early adapter and is first on the surf board of what’s ahead. Hans is not afraid to make a mistake and admit it who is also open. He is a natural manager who is part of the team. Simply; Hans is a fearless talented achiever who brings intelligent positiveness to anything or anyone he engages with. Everything gets much better when Hans arrives.

Hans is an extremely insightful web site builder, able to cut thru the clutter and BS to deliver a web site with a user-experience that delivers customers and value. His experience spans a variety of industries and he is able to take the best from all and bring them together for each new project.

I can easily recommend him for any web project, confident that he will exceed your expectations.
