I am a designer with a core focus on UI/UX. My interests include creating products that are not only visually appealing, but also fulﬁl business objectives through well designed user experience.
I enjoy the challenge of either building products from scratch or making existing ones better. Outside working hours I'm constantly involved in freelance projects or personal projects.
For my research process I first break down who my target audience is and what their incentives are to use the product. I compare these findings against the business objectives. Sometimes my research also includes play testing and user feedback.
For low fidelity prototypes I bash my ideas in a programme called Flinto however for more detailed prototypes I use Protopie because it allows me to include logic in my prototypes.
For wire-framing my application of choice is Sketch. There is a lot of hype for other softwares like Figma and adobe XD however I feel they still have yet to catch up with Sketch's variety of time saver plugins and beautiful eco system.
Hotjar is a very great tool for studying behaviour patterns. It is my tool of choice for creating heat maps and studying engagement. I also like to use Protopie to creat a high fidelity prototype to simulate the final product.
An important part of the handover process is creating robust Design systems for developers to reference to get the product as consistent to the designs as possible. Zeplin is a great tool as it allows developers to reference the CSS of the designs.
Overflow is a great tool that I have been using in a lot of projects because it can be shared via web and embedded in html. It also flows smoothly in sketch's eco system.
