I am many things.
But I am not a self-made professional.
I wouldn't be here without context, clients, partners, family or friends.
I'm grateful for all.
Experience and recommendations.
The best people to talk to about me as a professional are my clients, colleagues and friends.
Their words are humbling and uplifting at the same time.

Product Designer at Zalando™
For this project I’ve joined (remotely) an amazing team of designers. The job was to improve the functionality of an existing set of tools and to design from scratch a digital platform capable of supporting multiple services in the logistics domain. Alright, that is a mouth-full. But is really hard to explain the complexity of such product in few words.
This new product is servicing not only part of the activities related to shipments inside of Zalando’s warehouses, but the logistics domain, everything that moves on the first, middle and last mile. The platforms allows the creation/ managing of contracts and pricing, onboarding Freight Forwarders and Carriers, transport planning, yard and dock management and Invoice Reconciliation.
Service Designer at Ever Real™
A short but wonderful collaboration with the great people behind the Ever Real Platform (Munich DE).
The job was simple. Map the service offered to real estate agents managing thousands of properties across Germany.
For few weeks, together with key people inside the business we surfaced blind spots, found opportunities and mapped all the touch-points of their service.
In the end, we’ve got loads of diagrams, a complete service map and few recommendations to improve the existing experience.
Ever Real as is is already a robust product but the owners are looking for solutions to keep it relevant for a long time.
The pandemic has challenged the existing service model but also offered context and opportunities to make the product future-proof.

Product Designer at Zalando™
I’ve joined (remotely) this project to help Zalando shape its digital infrastructure. A great and complex project set to replace old and siloed tools used to manage the logistics around its warehouses spread around Europe.
Backed by the solid knowledge of the team, my role was to (re)design the foundation and logic of the logistics platform, shape the flows and create the user interface for a plethora of applications.
For eight months I’ve worked on onboarding and management of the freight forwarder partners, planning transports and tours, yard and dock management and invoicing applications. The list goes on and the complexity of relationships for datasets grows exponentially.
In my experience, only one other project done for the maritime industry came close to the complexity of this one.
But it is not over. I’ will join the project again, in September of 2021 and continue the work for the platform. An exciting opportunity to solve problems and be part of a great team.

Senior UX Consultant at Mashroom™
This project was by far the most engaging service and product design project I have been part of. Together with a young, dynamic team of designers, product owners and managers, I went through a challenging journey to help and change forever how properties are rented and sold in the UK.
Working on this projects offered me a front seat to the transformation already happening in the real estate industry. From the incipient phase to the launch of the MVP, this project required maximum effort to create intuitive services with great support and no dead ends.
An amazing collaboration with an international team of capable professionals. The biggest takeaway from this project is the exercise in designing a complex service and the products from its foundation.

Senior UX/UI Consultant at 90% of Everything™
An amazing opportunity to be part of a dramatic transformation in the maritime industry. As few other industries, the maritime industry was stuck in the last century in regards to its connected services. Together with an extraordinary team of designers, project managers, technicians and developers, I’ve worked on a few important features/products part of a complex fleet administration service.
From research to prototyping and testing almost everything was new for me and unexplored territory for the industry. From automating processes for vessel audits to organising and optimising vessels itineraries, I was part of a revolution that is set to change forever how services are provided in the maritime industry.
Besides the challenges that helped me grow, challenges of an industry set for transformation, one of the most important outcomes for me was learning. Learning interesting facts from very experienced people. I’ve left the project richer.

Senior UX/UI Consultant at Zone™
Back with the amazing team @Zone. This time working on an interesting project set to deliver new features for MINI Cooper owners as part of a temporary program.
The main purpose of this project was to allow the MINI Cooper owners and the dealers to learn more about the usage of the cars qualified for this program. This knowledge was used in the development of future Mini Cooper models and improving of the existing services.
To help the team deliver on this, I’ve designed a service and a product to help Mini Cooper owners check if their cars qualify, help them order, install and configure the module. The service would be completed with the return of the module at the end of the 12-month program.
A great collaboration with the wonderful people from Zone. Looking forward to meeting them again for the next project.

Senior UX Architect at Argos™
The most exciting e-commerce project I’ve been part so far.
A fast-paced, positive environment working along a great team of professionals.
The actual Argos™ experience is supported by groundbreaking technologies but being an evolving platform is still connected to legacy systems and sub-systems.
The objective of my participation was to improve conversion for various sections of the website.
The main task was to create a set of responsive components, modules, and templates, that will help the product team introduce in different ways thousands of products to millions of customers.
Each of these newly created modules and templates shall accommodate categories and subcategories of products sorted by various attributes, create context around products, new arrivals, stock clearance or sale events like Black Friday, Cyber Monday, July Saaale or Christmas/Easter Events.
A highly productive collaboration with amazing professionals. Looking forward to the next one.
