What value can I bring to your company?

🔥 love for design

For me, "design" doesn't end after school or work – and I don't mind that. I don't view designing as "a job", more like an important element of my lifestyle and identity. I do get delighted when I hear about an innovation, see a smart interaction, build a wireframe, or find that perfect font for the design project I am working on. Getting knowledge about design is a life-long learning curve. There is no such thing as too much knowledge!

💭 Holistic mindset

In the past few years I have been practicing how to view the world (therefore UX) holistically. An app or its functionality isn't just an isolated piece of code but a part of the user's life. A banking app may not just be a tool to send money but something that is an important element for someone's well-being. The UX designer's quest is to connect the user's needs, the look-and-feel of the product, the business paradigms, the backend, the research - having a holistic mindset is vital for this.

📱 User in mind

A (tough) lesson I learnt in the recent years, that in the end of the day, sexy fonts, trendy gradients or another buzzword won't help the user. It is the focus and respect to their needs. As designers, we have to be honest with ourselves: if we add or design this functionality, will that make anyone's life easier?

🌍 International eye

Hejså, Szia, Hola, ਸਤਿ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਅਕਾਲ, (the list goes on...)! Acquiring cultural intelligence and emphaty is key in today's market. Via my studies I already have experience working with people from 20+ nationalities. I am comfortable switching between languages, and happy to get insights into different cultures.

🛠️ diverse toolkit

...because hard skills are still needed. My weapons of mass creation are Affinity Designer, Adobe CC Ps–Ai–Id–Xd. Besides that, I am also familiar with Realtime Board, Figma, InVision, Loom, Slack, MeisterTask, basic front-end development, digital photography and SoMe. And I saved the best ones for the last: the good old paper and pen.

👥 Team spirit

A key experience of my education journey in Denmark: the discovery of how great it is to work in teams. Now I consider myself a team player. In team projects I usually take the role of the observer (be it about the user's behavior or the design team's dynamics), and the specialist (working on tasks that require spefic deeper knowledge).
