My Design Principles

 

Every designer needs to set their own design principles. It defines what sets them apart from other creatives. I have developed four key design principles which I use for every project. Here they are:

 

 
 

User is king

It’s all about the user, their needs, behaviours, likes and dislikes. Using research methods I’m confident in uncovering key insights and translating them into exceptional experiences.

 

Strive for simplicity

Whatever I am creating, I strive for simplicity. Good experience won't make the user think. I like to keep things simple and easy to follow.

 
 
 

Devil is in the (tiny) details

Little details, no matter how subtle they are, bring a great joy when using a product. Thought through micro-interactions add a lot of value to any product.

 

Experiment. Fail. Learn. Repeat.

No matter what I'm working on, I always try things out. I'm not afraid to fail, as failure is just a lesson. It takes me on the right path to success.

 
 

I use human centred design process to create meaningful user experiences
