Creative designer and maker.

I am passionate about design, web and tech.
I love learning new things and strive to continuously grow
– as a designer but more importantly, as a person.

Being able to create things makes me feel like I have superpowers.
It’s always an awesome feeling being able to turn ideas into reality.

Way of Design

Design with purpose. 

“Good design is as little as possible. Less, but better, because it concentrates on the essential aspects, and the products are not burdened with non-essentials. Back to purity, back to simplicity.”
– Dieter Rams

It is a principle that I always try to follow.
If something in the design doesn’t have a purpose, it probably shouldn’t be there.

Effective workflows.

I dislike innefficient processes and I will always try to make work easier for the next person. I turn time-consuming tasks and into profitable workflows.
