User Research

In my process, I start with user research to understand the customer needs, behaviors, and attitudes. It involves collecting and analyzing data through various methods such as surveys, interviews, field studies, competitor analysis.

Product Strategy

Every action requires a plan! I could help you come up with a solid plan and execute it. I could begin with a discovery phase, involving thorough research, stakeholder workshops and competition analysis. I can immerse myself in your business, bringing my design thinking know-how, and help you shape and achieve your business goals.

Object Oriented UX

OOUX is a philosophy for designing digital systems that respects the fact that people think in objects and need consistent, recognizable objects to understand an environment or product. OOUXers deliberately align their software to their user’s real-world mental model of concrete, defined objects, so that abstract digital worlds can be as naturally intuitive as the physical world we evolved in.

Wireframing and Prototyping

With wireframes, mockups, and functional prototypes, I can transform an initial concept into a minimal viable version or a realistic and polished idea, typically in the form of a website or mobile app. This enables us to swiftly assess user impressions and gather early feedback, which, in turn, guides our subsequent design and development decisions.

Usability testing

I employ usability testing methods, including moderated and unmoderated tests, and heuristic evaluations based on Jakob Nielsen’s principles. The process involves defining clear objectives, creating a test plan, recruiting diverse participants, preparing materials, conducting tests, collecting and analyzing data, and compiling findings into actionable reports. This iterative process guides design improvements, ensuring user-centered and effective digital products.

Digital Presence

My passion and graphic design skills and digital marketing experience can help you create landing pages, integrated ad campaign social media, to email, to web banners, and paid media. I produce original, engaging visual to meet the business goals and move your brand forward.
