What separates you from other UI/UX and web designers?
Being business-minded – apart from striving to achieve user goals and present the UI esthetics, We always look for ways to support my clients' business goals, leveraging my design expertise.Diverse experience. – from early-stage startups to enterprise-level software. And from non-profits to financial products. This diverse experience gives me an edge when it comes to tackling unique challenges.Certified Design Sprint Facilitator I have trained to create and run design workshops using the Google Design Sprint methodology. This helps us structure my design process in a way that brings you a maximum positive impact for the shortest amount of time.
How much does it cost to hire you for a UI/UX design project?
Projects start from €5000. This is often enough to improve key areas of the app or design a landing page for your product. More investment is required if you need to solve complex problems or develop a new product. This type of project can range from € 10000 up to multiple five figures.For larger projects, we get together for a few weeks and create or improve your product screen-by-screen, focusing on key areas first. The deliverables are typically high-fidelity layouts in Figma.To get started, email me with your project details to check availability and see if we’re a good fit.
What process should I expect if we work together?
My UI/UX design process is based on the design sprint methodology, which allows us to be flexible, adapting to almost any project type and collaboration model. While
each UI/UX design engagement is unique, we always go through the following key phases:Discovery & Research
I usually start by consolidating all available project information by interviewing key stakeholders.
We collaborate on requirements, ideate, and plan the next steps. When possible, I talk to your current or potential customers to understand their needs and pain points. In some cases, I may need to audit your existing product to identify opportunities for improvements to the user experience. I will also review competitors' products, gather visual design references, and document best practices.Digital Strategy & Concepts
Based on the discovery & research results, we synthesize a digital strategy and define a UX approach to drive the design process. I will explore different concepts to establish such core elements as information architecture, key screen layouts, and UI design direction. We then validate the resulting concept with
users and stakeholders. Once the feedback is in, we make necessary updates to proceed with designing the rest of the product.UI/UX Design
The main UX/UI design activities include user flow mapping, wireframing, user interface design, interaction design, and prototyping. I hand off design assets to developers using Figma developer handoff features and provide a style guide that includes a UI component library, and user flows.
