Studio Ferdinand is a design bureau focused on User Interface Design, User Experience, Information ArchitectureeCommerce and Information Design. Due to having several of our own projects and attending some startups from the beginning we´re very familiar with concepting projects in their entirety.

Most people make the mistake of thinking design is what it looks like. That’s not what we think design is. It’s not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.

– Steve Jobs

Studio Ferdinand is founded by Katharina Mauer and Sebastian Schäder.

Our Approach


There is a lot of information we are confronted with in every second of our lives. And there are of course many things you want to say about your project.

Human senses

Here is the bottleneck: Only a small amount of this information accessing our brains. Did you know, that you can only focus the size of your thumbnail at once?

The access

So it´s important to emphasize the relevant things of your project, product and information.

If people have fun looking at your idea or using your product, it is easy to get into people´s minds – and hearts.

We are helping you with that.

Our Capabilites

User Experience

The experience should be more than a pure usability. If people have fun using your product, you will conquer their heart through a trojan horse.

Workshops / Consulting

After years working on your own projects it can be difficult seeing things clear. We are helping you to identify the issues where adjusting will have the biggest impact on success.

Information Architecture

Wikipedia says: „The art and science of organizing and labelling websites, intranets, online communities and software to support usability and findability.“ For us, information architecture is the absolute requirement for an excellent result.

User Interface

Focus the relevant information, set the right call to action on the best possible position and prepare the content in the right way. That leads to beautiful, easy to use and clear interfaces.


We have over 5 years experience operating our own eCommerce project with Wechselwild. So we have a huge amount of insights from the client perspective to bring your idea to (even more) success.

Information Design

You can have tons of data in plenty of excel sheets – and no one cares. It´s how you treat the data, which makes it valuable. We work out the exciting relations and visualize it in a beautiful way.

Brand Identity

Bringing a brand to live goes much further than creating a beautiful logo. We will define the complete look & feel, communitcation issues and even the name, if you want.
