Hola, I craft visual design systems for software products in London.And I like popcorn.
A software product is basically a sheet of paper —minus the razor-sharp edges. It needs a visual design system to make the content structured and create a consistent product that can be iterated efficiently. Users can sense when a product is well built, and thank for a cohesive interactive experience.
That's where I can help. Check out some of my works below.
I led the adaptation of Microsoft's Visual Design Language and Windows 10's patterns into Skype. I designed a toolkit for other designers to easily follow the system. This toolkit specified from how spacing and sizing should be applied to the use of each colour.
I worked with 2 designers to bring Skype for Web to life, an adaptation of the classic Skype app. We collaborated to overcome the technical limitations and adapted the UI for a touch-friendly experience. I also worked on improving individual features of Skype for Mac and Windows Classic, such as the contacts page and sharing a chat.
This app was designed as an assessment for Google DeepMind. After conducting customer interviews, I crafted an app that would deliver insights on activity and food intake with the least amount of effort from the user.
While working for Frog Design, I helped designing a new website for one of Siemens' brands, the largest engineering company in Europe. We designed how the company appears, product pages as well as a new community system.
Designed as an exploration for a pitch project at Frog, I paired with a developer to explore how can the OS of Smart TVs be more enjoyable. We focused on making a prototype for a more fluid and visual browsing, as well as a quicker app switching interaction.
Part of an article about how email apps can improve on focusing on the content I’m reading, and not on the tools around it. The goal here was to reduce complexity while still maintaining a full-featured product.
Or Hi, or Namaste, or whatever really.
Some ideas to break the ice if you’re not a super outgoing guy.
