I try to do my best work and be the best you can work with

My design process varies as it depends on the stage the company is in, its size and its design maturity.

Discovery

I get a complete understanding of business' goals, needs and desires as well as user pain points, motivations and goals in order to develop a plan to improve their experience.

Ideation

I start to figure out ways to mix business goals and user needs in every product. This stage typically involves competitor analysis, user journeys, information architecture and wireframing.

Solid design

I start designing the layout and components of the screens, always trying that the designs are clean and simple and make sense for everyone.

Iterate

Projects are never finished. After we have launch a new feature or a whole MVP, we need to continue iterate on it to make sure we are providing the best user experience.
