Hi, I’m Sandy Daehnert

I am a UX/UI designer from Cologne. For more than 10 years I’ve been helping brands to design user-friendly, accessible and (since 2018) ecologically sustainable websites, apps, online shops and other digital products. Because we as designers and companies have a responsibility. And because, to be honest, it has a lot of benefits.

There are so many great and creative possibilities that I like to bring into my projects and also share outside. My work is my absolute passion, especially when it gets tricky and complex.

The projects in my career so far were mainly websites, portals and applications for Langenscheidt, Unicef, Telekom, Vodafone, Recoupling, Eurorad, Adobe, Klugo, DKV and various banks, insurance companies and car manufacturers. Will the next project be one with you?

Feel free to contact me to chat or to request a look at my portfolio.

Eco Analysis

You want to find out what’s not sustainable about digital product.

You would like to have another perspective on your digital product.

With the UX / UI Review, you can either have your entire website / application checked or ask very specific detailed questions.

Talks & Workshops

You would like to learn more as a team, company, in a meetup, conference or in your community. Then feel free to ask me for a workshop, business lunch or talk.

Thematically I am completely open. UX, UI, sustainability, UX methods, digital cleanups, etc. Let’s just talk about it.

My vision …

… is a green, climate friendly web with happy users, super fast websites, healthy and loving communication, high accessibility, diversity, green patterns instead of black patterns and brands and designers that love their digital products and jobs. For the planet.

What’s the web’s footprint?

Every mouse click starts a dialogue with data centers, that run 24/7 on energy and are cooled down with huge amounts of water. Telecommunication networks and end-user devices add to the massive needs of energy and emit all-together more than 830 million tons of CO2 per year, estimates rising.*

What’s a green website?

Your website, app or other kind of digital service is green, if you run it on renewable energy, you have very little data to load, you chose green digital tools for your work and you talk via your website, Social Media and offline activities about all the sustainability efforts within your brand or business.

With green design you’re website gets a boost in terms of findability, ranking, super minimal loading times, very small page weight and happy users. Why? Because sustainable webdesign equals super minimal data load.
