matthias kretschmann

designer & developer


Between 2016 and 2019, I took the lead in the UI design and development for all BigchainDB web properties. I established BigchainDB's brand from the ground up, continually refining and elevating the creative and visual direction of the company. This involved creating a components-based UI design system that would be used across all BigchainDB web properties.

The main website was a statically generated site built with Jekyll and a custom Gulp-based build pipeline. Data was pulled from various external sources and microservices to create a seamless user experience. All design and development work was streamlined through a continuous deployment process.

Branding & key visuals in collaboration with Wojciech Hupert.
