My Skills

I'm a full-stack product designer with an obsessive engineering disorder.

Product Strategy

I lead Design Thinking sessions, stakeholder brainstorming meetings, customer interviews, create competitive analysis, customer journey, and help with business model ideation. I focus on mapping research outcomes to business expectations.

Prototyping

I create wireframes and flows, taking into account essential edge cases. My first recommendation is to bring the product to the market as soon as possible. I will often make fully functional prototypes to start gathering real-time user feedback.

High Fidelity

My favourite style is heavily inspired by the scandinavian school of clean, functional, and playful design. I'm proficient in Sketch, Illustrator, Figma, but I like experiment with unconventional tools like Spline, Unity, and Blender.

Implementation

I've been transitioning to engineering for the last couple of years by making active contributions to the code base. I'm experienced in production quality HTML and CSS. I continuously upskill in practical knowledge of Javascript and React.

Interaction Design

Animations, transitions, transforms, SVG effects, HMTL canvas illustrations, 3D games... I've done it all, and I remain fascinated by the world of interaction design. My main focus is on a smooth user experience and engagement.

Data Analysis

I use data analytics to inform my product design decisions. I have the most success with Amplitude and Mix Panel for applications. I would always recommend Hotjar for the website analytics software. My goal is to iterate and improve user experience continuously.

Deep Learning

I've started my adventure with Machine Learning not long ago, but I can already see how important it will be in the future of product design. I'm exploring converstational interfaces, dynamic layouts, and face recognition features.

My Impact Map

I'm a goal driven creative go-getter, but there is always a team behind each of my achievements.

The Collaboration

I've co-created a designer-friendly abstraction on top of React to enable full collaboration between designers, engineers, and product owners.

Views Tools
Accessible design system
Flexible environment configuration
State modeled in folder-like structure
Start apps with one click
Create new React projects
Clean key-value interface settings
Use React components
Add new Views to control the state
Fully extandable React logic and data queries
I believe design and engineering are the same. Unfortunately, software developement is complex, and engineering tools are hard to use by less-technical designers and product owners. I'm part of the movement with a goal to simplify software delivery process! I'm notoriously involved in reinventing the design tooling to make the designer-developer experience as integrated as possible.
We call it, Views.

My Tech Skills

I enjoy breaking things and putting them back together. I spend at least two hours a day learning.
