LOVE WHAT YOU DO
For over 15 years, I have helped startups and established businesses to refine, design, and build their digital products.
Before any project, I dig deep on your business, your target customers and your competitors to craft a formidable product design strategy.
My superpower is converting your ideas into real tangible pixels that we can either evolve into a real product or fail-fast.
It’s not enough for an interface to just look good, it has to be a flawlessly intuitive and simple experience for the user.
In a world of mobile, tablet and desktop screens, an intuitive interface is key to any successful product design strategy.
Enabling the user to achieve their objective(s) in the best way possible through the use of elements like motion, sound and space.
We bring all the elements of the process together to build a proof of concept that can be tested with users and handed off for development.
My process has evolved over time
I've been through half a billion dollars worth of funding rounds, startup launches, mergers and exits...and learned a thousand lessons along the way.
What people are saying
"Design isn’t just about look and feel. It’s about how something works, about how to make it work intuitively. As a designer, Adam gets this. When working with Adam, it’s not just about the UI. It’s about the UX and the brand voice as well. Understanding that mix, that total combination, is what makes Adam a terrific designer who succeeds at creating exemplary user experiences."
