Profile

With over a decade of work experience and master's degree (MA) in design, I have narrowed my focus on digital product user experience which sums all disciplines covered so far. I can lead and manage a design team with an emphasis on user-centered design in mind. I combine an analytical approach to design with strong visual design skills and natural artistic ability. This enables me to develop products that are both visually engaging, intuitive and highly usable.
