Frank Rausch

I’m a user interface designer, app developer, and typographer. I have created and contributed to award-winning, commercially successful, beloved, and distinctive apps for iOS, macOS, and for the web.

I work as a design consultant and usability expert for international clients. I regularly speak at technology and design conferences. (You can find some video recordings below.) I have more than a decade of lecturing and mentoring experience in higher education—and this teaching applied skills to smart people has helped me build up my superpower : I offer constructive, actionable advice and design elegant UI solutions for humane digital products.

About this Site

Tech Stack

This site runs on Kirby with a hand-crafted template. I’ve written a tiny bit of vanilla JavaScript for the UI with no third-party libraries. Yes, the site works without JavaScript. I use the privacy-concious open-source metrics tool Plausible Analytics.


The serif font is Nice by Jan Fromm, a variable font published by Fontwerk.

The monospaced font is MD IO by Mass-Driver.
