About me

 

I'm a Multidisciplinary Senior Designer with experience in roles such as UX UI Designer, Interaction Designer, Product Designer, Visual designer, Graphic designer, 3D Artist. I've worked with over 100 brands, got a Photoshop Master Certificate, 3 UX certifications, multiple awards and recognitions, plus over 10 years experience in the web industry and design industry. I've scored the highest grade in university history, according to faculty, representing them at Archiprix - Worlds best graduation projects which shows my analytic thinking and problem solving skills. Having a Masters Degree in Architecture helped dramatically improve my UX designer and Interaction designer skills as they are quite related and as a Senior User Experience designer I'm familiar with the full UX cycle and it's roles like Interaction designer, Visual designer, UX researcher, etc. Being a Web designer at the core transitioned me to user experience & visual designer roles by handling complex projects such social networks, web applications, mobile apps, e-commerce and building a technical front-end skill set ( HTML & CSS, SEO, etc) and knowledge ( API, Apache, MVC, W3C, etc) I'm well versed in interaction design, information architecture, prototyping, usability, user research, wireframes, storyboards, mockups, user testing, user journeys, user flows, intuitive user interfaces, A/B Testing, eye tracking and +20 other things. Working as a contractor, led me to launching products, managing teams and working with stakeholders as well as developers directly, mostly in Project Lead / Lead designer roles tackling everything from conception to post-launch, including marketing & launch strategy, in Waterfall, LEAN or AGILE environments. Launching projects led me to develop Project Management ( roadmap, milestones, etc) and Product Designer skills ( MVP, market research, etc) In my free time, I launch personal projects, travel (20 countries), scuba dive ( PADI certified ) or tackle team activities
