Portrait of Martin Lexow
Portrait Yasmina Aust


I am well experienced in developing apps and designing user experiences. Blessed with a strong sense for aesthetics and empathy. Passionated about sharing my expertise through consulting and teaching. My apps are honest, functional-driven and tailored for the creative and ambitious. German design tradition and Apple’s attention for detail inform my design. We need less — but better.¹

An app ahead

I founded App ahead to publish carefully crafted and honest designed apps, focussing on Apples operating systems macOS and iOS. Their intention is to set a benchmark in each of their categories. Therefore I use latest technologies, like Swift and SwiftUI.

Common growth is important to me and the exchange of knowledge is key to that. Teaching is not only an exciting but fundamental part of how I define the role of a responsible designer. I am happy to had the opportunity to do so.
