Whenever I design a new interface or an experience, the first thing I consider is the user. After all, we build user interfaces and experiences to solve users’ problems and help them achieve a goal(s). It is never a good idea to do guesswork or make decisions based on feelings for the user. Testing the UI on users as early as possible to prove a concept, flow, or logic before starting the building process helps the team make intelligent and better decisions.
Principles I like to use:
I love the systematic/dynamic approach to generating visuals (mock-ups, wireframes, flows, etc.) and front-end assets. It is straightforward to turn an idea into reality and see if it is worth spending all that time and money on an idea or a project when the technology you are using helps you be more efficient.
I love to learn! I am a lifelong student. I do not believe education ever ends.
I obviously love designing and developing web/mobile applications, however, I have a great personal interest in machine learning and big data. I think ML and big data are the future. Music, I mean, who doesn’t love music? I have played the guitar since I am 6 years old. I find it calming to finish the day with some tunes.
