* I don’t trade Code skills as this is something that I need to manage my web pages & plugins. Code skills help me to bridge the gap between design and code while collaborating with the developers.

I design for humans. I strive for inclusive design.

Accessibility first

When we design for differently-abled users, we make experiences better for everyone. I focus on permanent, temporary, and situational disability.

User focus

While designing experiences, I keep users front and center. I prefer firsthand user observations and making design decisions grounded in data.

Human factor

Humans have variables that increase the tendency of errors. I make product interaction so easy that it becomes hard for users to make errors.

Not intuitive, I try to make product interactions familiar first. Remember, a not familiar human can perceive a pencil as weapon.
