Skills

Product Design

Creating products from A to Z, from research to deployment and further is one of my strengths. Combining the power of UX, UI and  coding helps me a lot while solving user problems and focusing on business goals. Modern design approaches always in mind.

Design Systems

Crafting, defining and maintaining design systems is part of my daily work. Consistency, reusability and scalability are a must for each design system. Figma components and documentations are my biggest friends for managing design systems.

User Experience

Any design decision should be justified with users in mind. With usage of user centric design, interviews, user flows and many more techniques I achieved product growth and happy customers.

Web Development

With experience in coding frontend applications I got the perfect understanding of the connection between web and designing. Giving developers clear instructions saves time and work.

They went public early 2021 on the Fantom Opera blockchain. This blockchain was flourishing at this time and a lot of similar projects were created. In the crypto space it’s important to be an executor which means as a service provider you need to act fast. inSPIRIT was created to ensure more stable liquidity provided by users. The service consists of locking tokens, voting, claiming rewards and general statistics of past data. It was created in a rush without respect for a good experience to keep up with the crypto pace.

While leading the whole redesign of SpiritSwap I focused on reworking all user flows, unifying and simplifying features, working on consistent interactions for similar patterns. All based on research data of users and public feedback. Due to complexity of this domain I added an onboarding processes for inexperienced users which wasn’t thought of before. I crafted a design system from scratch, with rules to maintain visual consistency. As a solo designer I managed and designed UX, UI, dev communication and marketing material.

In my double role, I maintained the design system and build new features based on requirements of customers and stakeholders.
