Hi, I'm André.
Married, father of two amazing kids and also a Product Designer.
For over two decades, I have honed my skills in Graphic Design, User Interface, and User Experience. As a mentor to younger designers, I lead by example and strive to create meaningful experiences that are both visually appealing and functional. My passion lies in creating products that bring about positive change in the world.
Getting to know what users require and what challenges they face is the first step to establishing a strong base for any product.
It's amazing what can be achieved when we let our imaginations run wild! Brainstorm as many ideas as possible, then refine them down to the most effective ideas.
Take advantage of all the discovered opportunities and turn them into something tangible. Keep it simple and consistent, and remember that nothing stays the same forever.
Create systems, and follow logic and usability principles. Create a seamless hand-off and always be available to help.
Taking the time to review our work and get feedback, opens the space for growth and improvement.
It's great to stay open to new ideas and be willing to switch things up. Remember to take a moment to enjoy the journey - work is important, but it's not everything!
Nothing feels more rewarding than bringing a human-centred approach to a product/service strategy.
The materialisation of the product/service strategy and vision.
Not only professionally but also as a person.
If we don't recognize the various difficulties and experiences that each person has gone through, it is impossible to generate meaningful work.
If we lack honesty, it isn't easy to cooperate and work toward shared objectives.
Do your best and be confident in your abilities; recognize your limitations and don't hesitate to ask for help when needed.
We don't know everything. Relax and be humble.
Designers are like curious cats, but personally, I'm more of a dog person!
By hearing out different points of view, we can expand our understanding and grow.
Nothing gets done alone. Share the knowledge, learn, and lend a helping hand.
