my design process

principles that guide my work

1. Empathize

Thoroughly analyzing the project, the goals and the people involved, is the first brick of the house. For the house to be solid, the first brick must be well placed.

2. Define

After collecting as much data as possible, I try to analyze them and narrow them down to be able to define a few clear insights to work with. 

3. Design

Having worked with many graphic design tools for over 15 years, I have acquired the expertise to quickly digitize an approved idea. Being comfortable with modern prototyping platforms such as Figma, Adobe XD or InVision, I can quickly bring sketches to life.

4. Test

The purpose of the last iteration is to make sure you haven’t designed, confined to the echo chamber of your idea. Testing your design by looking for points of view other than your own can reveal crucial mistakes your eyes didn’t want to see.

Agile is not a methodology, it’s more of a mindset for organizing projects and managing them more flexibly.

As Gustave Eiffel said, “Strength comes from flexibility rather than weight.”

holistic point of view

My dual background on tech and design, allows me to have a bird-eye view on projects and to be the perfect middleman between developers and designers.

motivation

I have an insatiable appetite for technology. My drive is the idea of evolution that has evolved humans to the current state of the art.

Shaping technology around products is a natural attitude for me; technology is my native language.
