Hire me!

I have worked in the software industry for about 10 years, focusing on Web-, UX-, UI design and development. Alongside my regular day-to-day tasks, I've also dipped my toes in helping the teams outside development by providing ideas, illustrations, visualizations, animation, and music for the marketing teams, as well as video-game music, logo design, and wall-paintings as a freelancer. My extensive hobbyistic endeavors have also taught me this and that, from game development, music production, video editing, and 2D/3D graphics, to name a few.

Workshop

I'll arrange a session with the users and/or stakeholders - with an intention to understand their problems, needs, and frustrations. Everything will be compiled into a human-readable report. This data can then be used to define core problems you're trying to solve.

Definition

I'll take in the data from interviews, and/or workshops and shape it into human-readable (anonymized) data (e.g. user personas, user journeys, and problem statements.)

Ideation

I'll get my pencils, use the available user knowledge, and let my wildest ideas roam free, as a goal to generate lots of ideas. Then these ideas can be processed, and the best parts can be further worked on.

Wire-frame

I'll produce a set of (grayscale) wire-frames, representing the core structure, and/or site-map of the product. It could be a single image, a series of images, or even a clickable prototype with basic interaction elements.

User Test

I'll make a plan for testing users (as un-biasedly as I can), then execute the plan, let it be a online-poll, or live-session. With the data gathered, I'll form a report/presentation of the findings.

Mockup

I'll forge the wire-frames into a full-fledged product designs - including top-notch visual design; everything from colors to typography, paddings to margins, graphical elements to components obeying a design system (e.g. Material Design).

Design System

I'll build a custom design system according to your brand. In a nutshell it means pre-made components, and sticker-sheets in Figma, that can be utilised when building layouts.

Prototype

I'll create a prototype of the product that resembles the final product with functional interaction possibilities. It will use mock-data, and will not have anything "real" under-the-hood, but it will guide the development, marketing, and overall vision. Depending of the needs, it will done either in Sketch/Figma, or HTML/CSS/JS.

Development

I'll take a look at your code-base—figure out how it's working, take a breath, and start pushing commits. Basically converting designs and mockups into production-ready (frontend) code with markup (HTML), styling (CSS/SASS), React components, and styled-components, you name it..

Scripting

I'll let my vim editor sing, and script you something useful—like an automatic accessibility checker in the pipeline, module bundler, telegram bot, or a nifty BASH command that spits out unicorns on the command-line.

Video-game / Interactive Content

I'll design and implement a complete 2D/2.5D video game or interactive content, all the way from design to illustrations and music/sound to implementation. Example uses: marketing, fairs, museums, website fun...

Accessibility

I'll make sure your product follows the targeted WCAG accessibility requirements by running tests on it and doing the necessary changes to it (e.g. adjusting the color contrast.)

Digital Tidy-up

I'll take a look at your website, and see if there is something I could tidy up - people often get blind for their own creations.

Usability Checklist

I'll go through an usability check-list with your website, and report my findings.

Website

I'll build an affordable website for you (or for your company) by using platforms such as Wordpress, Webflow, Blogger, or static-site generators such as Jekyll. Whatever suits your needs the best.
