Once I was proud to say I can do almost anything. Today I believe one should specialize in a field in order to become truly good. Design is my field. In specific the conceiving of un-traditional ideas, thinking a little bit different, being brave.
I balance that with my practical experience, vigorous testing and careful analysis of humans’ interaction patterns. All good designs need to fit in within our world, its limits, regulations, conventions, expectations, variety and personal taste too.
In specific I…:
Visual design: Master Sketch, Adobe, Abstract, Zeplin
Design thinking methodology, look at problems first
Mapping: Service blueprinting, user flows and touchpoints
Prototyping and validation (InVision, Userzoom, Usabilla and more)
Understand current code and capabilities
Have good research tools to dispose (quantitive and qualitative)
Clear presentation skills
Run workshops and design sprints
Management and personal development
And passion. Bags of it.
