Humanity, creativity and purpose, transform companies and their relationships with the people they serve.

Organizations that prioritize humanity cultivate deeper emotional connections with customers.

Questions I'm asked

I have an academic background in design and computer science and I've been working in the UI/UX industry for the past 10 years.

In all my roles I've designed successful products that have received industry recognition and are being used by millions of people.

I have a curated list of blogs and online communities which I follow and learn things from. I attend design conferences and I'm a member of a local design community.

I try to stay up-to-date with the latest trends by regularly watching YouTube videos so I can incorporate them in my designs and push the limit further.

Mainly Figma & Illustrator. Lookback, Dovetail & Maze for user research, Photoshop, Premiere & After Effects occasionally, GitHub or GitLab when prototyping with HTML and anything else in between that might be needed.

My favourite IDE is Sublime but I ocassionaly use VSCodium to test out cool AI plugins.

A supportive and inclusive culture that values collaboration, creativity and personal growth.

I seek an environment that encourages open communication, where ideas are valued and diverse perspectives are embraced.

It is important to me to be part of a company that prioritizes user-centric design allowing designers to be productive, innovative and giving them the space to pursue excellence through iterations. I prefer companies which have a strong sense of purpose and work on meaningful projects that make a positive impact.

I believe in fostering strong collaboration with cross-functional teams by maintaining open lines of communication, actively listening to different perspectives and valuing the expertise and insights each team member brings to the table.

By establishing a shared understanding of project goals and requirements, I ensure that design decisions align with both user needs and technical feasibility.

Regular meetings, workshops and design reviews are key to fostering a collaborative environment where ideas can be openly discussed, refined and implemented effectively.

Would love to hear from you
