People ↔ Design ↔ Code

I design interactions in real life, on screen and via the Internet. I craft contexts, experiences and tools for creatives, companies and clients.

I like to use a holistic approach to projects. It ensures consistency across different channels, it also generally feel kinder and more human.

I code and design for the web; I work across digital strategy, UI/UX design and real life events.

How I can help you

  • Design thinking and research. I use methodologies inspired by lean/agile process. I work with a user centric approach, based on research and analytics. I sketch and program interfaces layout and interactions (UI/UX) for websites and applications.
  • Digital strategy. Research and development for websites, newsletters, social networks. It encompasses sketch and proposal, design, development, templates, content, tools and implementation. I can help you plan around key dates, objectives and targets.
  • Web Technology. According to the project scope, I can build websites, prototypes and applications. I can advise your team to better design and plan around technological challenges. I can help you understand and deploy better process with online tools.
