SERVICES

WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU

IDEAS AND CONCEPTS

Wraping the knowledge from user research into sketches, mock-ups, low to high fidelity prototypes
(3D modeling, printing, lasercutting).

USER RESEARCH

Everything related to learning about users: observing how they think, make choices and behave. This helps understanding their needs and preferences and acts as a foundation for future design.

CODING & DEVELOPMENT

Building physical, interactive devices using web technologies and developement platforms such as arduino/raspberry pi.

USER TESTING

Launching an app, service or website doesn’t guarantee immediate success. It is just the beginning of the journey. Testing is as important as research. It helps to pivot, tweak and refine.

BUSINESS MODELLING

Ideas are great, maybe they are worth even more? I am familiar with Business Model Canvas/Lean Canvas and Value Proposition Canvas tools as well as Lean Startup and Design Thinking methodologies.

BUILD WITH LOVE

The secret ingredients of every project that I do are passion, ambition and love.
