“If you can design one thing, you can design everything.” 

— Massimo Vignelli

APPROACH & PRINCIPLES

Every project starts with a business insight, technology vision and design problem, but it should always end with the user. As a product designer, my goal is to create the best user experience which not only looks nice, but also works intuitively and solves the problem at hand. In the end, my vision is to connect function with form and create a consistent user experience.
