I love creating MVPs for cross-platform products. I strive for minimalism and equitable design for the Next Billion Users

I’m a Senior UX/UI Designer certified by Google. I have come a long way from a simple Painting Artist to a Full-stack Web Developer, from the birth of Startups to their Collapse. I realized that my Love for creating interfaces did not leave me, and She carefully led me to you. Now this experience has become the core of my favorite profession!

Broad-minded. Thinking outside the box

It may seem like a fantasy to you, but I own big data from various fields of science: psychology, brain neurochemistry, physics, biology, medicine, chemistry, and much more. Imagine how this vast body of knowledge can help you create user-centered product designs.

Applied Skills

Research

To do my job effectively, I understand what users want and how they see the world. This means that I can plan, conduct and analyze the results of various research methods. I will especially note the skills of user testing and analytical research.

Information Architecture

I suggest organizing information in an understandable way. I apply information architecture to websites, applications, software, printed materials, and even physical spaces, which can include systems such as labeling, components, navigation and search functions.

Wireframing

A wireframe is a blueprint for each screen of an interface. Its primary purpose is to show how something works, not how it looks. Wireframing defines the elements that need to be present from page to page. It includes all the interface components required for all possible interactions and is generally designed in grayscale, using boxes and lines.

Prototyping

Prototypes allow designers to test functionality. They help designers ensure a match between a system and its users before construction on the final product begins. Prototypes allow designers to test both page functionality and overall navigation. As problems are identified, the UX designer may go through several iterations before landing on a design that meets business and user goals. UX designers should have the ability to prototype quickly and effectively.

Visual design

Visual design focuses on how the product or technology looks. I’m like a UX designer, understanding the foundations of visual design to communicate the connection between a product’s functionality and its appearance to users.

Effective communication

Effective communication as a UX designer means connecting with your colleagues through emails, meetings, presentations, and design software. UX design is a very collaborative field, so communicating both digitally and face-to-face with teammates is essential. I am a good listener, receptive to feedback, and share my ideas transparently.

    Soft Skills

    Curiosity

    Curious professionals can engage with clients, products, and challenges in meaningful ways. My curiosity leads to asking insightful questions, active listening, and engaging more deeply with problems. UX is a consistently changing field. Developing a sense of curiosity helps me keep up.

    Empathy

    Empathy is the ability to understand and feel the emotions of others. UX emphasizes a positive customer experience. That’s why the best UX designers take the time to learn about people and their inclinations. A deep understanding of end-users allows me to create products that truly engage and delight.

    Communication

    Communication is essential in UX. Designers must convey product ideas, explain the thinking behind designs, and work with other teams. Their work also requires elements of storytelling. Effective communication skills help me create, collaborate, adapt, and improve products and systems with ease.

    Collaboration

    Good UX design means incorporating the ideas of developers, clients, and team members. So I can to effectively give and receive feedback, explore solutions, and include the expertise and needs of everyone involved in a project to create the best products possible.
