About

As an avid believer in the power of people-centered design, I’m fascinated by psychology, user interaction, and people-based problem-solving. I approach design empathically and focus on understanding the needs and emotions of the users I design for, with the aim of creating clear, impactful solutions to glorify their lives.

I have worked on projects in the field of UI/UX, web design, branding and identity, and print design. Furthermore, I enjoy collaboration, digital experimentation, and learning about new tools and approaches to keep improving my design process.

With the specialties I have acquired, I was even able to start a company: Yasurf. I always prefer to use the best skills together with an excellent collaboration to achieve perfect work results. I even share my design knowledge on Medium.

Outside design, my interests include sports, travel, research into new technologies, and music.
