Because I believe that  genuine feedback from users enable the path to better design decisions.

I conduct qualitative field research, user interviews by using observation and shadowing methods to understand the user needs.

May it be illustrations, photography, typography, remindful iconography, persuasive colour, proper spacing, layout execution, and many other "little big details”, visual design is a universal and strong communication tool. And good design happens when this strong tool is used to communicate the purpose and the function of the product.
