UX - User Experience

User Experience Designer

User experience design is emotional and strategic. It begins with an idea to improve the lives or task completion of users, and continues through every moment of the customer life-cycle. It is driven by a sincere vision that guides and justifies every design decision. My method?  Lean, user centered, killing assumptions along the way.

VD - Visual Design

Webdesigner / Graphic designer

In todays online world, use of visual design is more important than ever. Fresh and fitting visual design makes you stand out from your competition and creates a visual relationship with your users.
