I’ve been working in the field of design for almost 10 years, as a design strategist taking responsibility for both the interface of the product and the visual communication of the product. In the last couple of years I've been working at technology startups leading the design of the core product (mostly SaaS web/desktop applications and marketplaces) in order to increase the conversion to premium subscription, to minimize the account abandonment, and to turn engagement into purchase. 


My main responsibilities include designing the user experience from the first visitor touch point to the last one to lay the foundations of the habitual product usage. Creating concept models, detailed schematics and high fidelity designs of user interactions across multiple channels (web, desktop, mobile). Defining the general design approach of product to support the business goals.
