How would you describe your job?
It’s not so easy to answer this question these days. I have a background in graphic design, and then I became a visual designer. During that time, I worked to make websites and apps more usable and emotionally expressive by adding aesthetic layers. Those were the simple days. Now I work as a product designer at ustwo. My responsibility includes researching, concepting, facilitating workshops with clients, running usability tests, writing thought leadership pieces, and providing feedback to other designers.
What does a typical working day look like?
I ride my skateboard into the studio around 9am. I make a coffee and a scrambled egg prosciutto sandwich if I have not had breakfast. I work eight to nine hours a day, and on one project most of the time, but the tasks I have for the day vary heavily depending on the type and the stage of the project.
How did you land your current job?
The previous studio head at ustwo New York, Jules, reached out to me via Linkedin. We were in touch for over a year. The size and the type of ustwo’s work was aligned with my interests, so I decided to join.
