My services
I transform ideas into digital work that increases your conversions and grows your business
Hi, I’m Carsten and I have been working as an Art Director for 14 years in different advertising agencies. For a long time, I also worked as Studio Lead UI / Senior Artist and Game Designer in the gaming industry. Currently, I am the Head of Design & UI at Facelift bbt.
Next to my professional career, I have my own design studio cs.vico, where I work as an Art Director, UI-Designer, UX-Evangelist and Graphic Artist on multiple projects. With the mission to engage beginners and attract experts.  Here an overview of services I offer:

I’m conversion driven

Apart from tracking KPIs and performance, landing pages should also engage and attract with their design. With A/B tests, responsive layouts and optimized, conversions will grow significantly.

I’m an UI / UX Evangelist

A successful user interface is the key to a high conversion. Whether Website, App, or Game UI design, the user requires a good UI in order to have a good and memorable user experience.

I am professional

And Design is my passion. My work is above average and I deliver beyond expectations. Good is not always good enough - Expect more, if it matters. 

I identify with brands

From the logo to corporate design, whether it is a startup or a high performing brand, I deliver the right services. My expertise accompanies you successfully and reliably. 

I love team management

Whether team management, team building, team motivation, recruiting or project management, I am able to manage large but also small teams effectively.

I also design Games

My passion and long-time companion is game development. It is something very special and the conversions through a good UI lead to success in today's gaming world.
