Honesty. Transparency. Value.

I'm here to help you achieve your goals first and foremost. We'll begin with me taking the time to understand you, your project, and your needs. Doing so will lay a stronger foundation for our engagement. However, if for some reason, I feel that you require services that I don't offer. or you're not at a stage where I can genuinely be of value. I will let you know.  If this is the case, I will gladly provide ideas as to how you could better invest your time/money. I operate this way to ensure that I am only accepting your project if I believe the value you'll receive will exceed your investment

It's all a process.

01. Discover

If we find, through our initial consultation, that we are indeed a match meant to be, we'll move into the next phase of our fruitful relationship together. Through an intensive discovery session, we'll get clarity on who you are, your needs, wants, goals, audience(s), how they'll find you, why they should care, and what success looks like for them.

02. Align

Now we'll take everything we ascertained throughout the discovery phase to create a roadmap. Taking into account factors such as your positioning, ideal audience, look/feel, tone/voice, as well as business priorities. Establishing a north star for our journey together.

03. Execute

Time to turn ideation, concepts, blood, sweat, and tears into a living thing. We'll work together to build, iterate, and refine the outcome. These steps will drive our ability to turn consumers into loyal customers and bubbling fans. If any additional needs are left uncovered in the discovery phase, I can aid in pointing you towards specialists to assist further if needed.
bizzy

Blending play and productivity together.

Accomplishing more with Bizzy. Taking a human-centric approach, natural behaviors and patterns were the foundation of the design process for Bizzy. We all use calendars, messengers, to-dos, and reminders — however, it gets convoluted when switching between and learning how different software works. To mitigate these struggles, every feature was built to feel like you've used it before. Adding in habit building components such as progress meters and community chats. Bizzy not only helps individuals and teams stay in sync and on top of their work but truly amplifies productivity.

Mobber

Nurturing integrity
with social media.

Building a digital safe space with Mobber. The goal was to create a cohesive experience that safeguards against cyberbullying and critical judgments. From owning the product design process to streamlining the "cyberbuddy" experience by crafting layouts and exploring machine learning techniques. Employing new methodologies to help better remedy user obstacles and provide a warm home for everyone to showcase their individuality.

gander

All it takes is a gander to see the truth.

With ambitions of bringing truth into the light, Gander utilizes artificial intelligence (AI) to filter news. In theory, this will provide a purer experience with decreased bias from either side. The goal was to produce an accessible way for both knowledgable news consumers as well as casual ones by implementing smart timed, quick, easily digestible and viewable article summaries or "ganders." Think of it as news on your schedule. Throughout the design process, the problems that needed to be addressed included irrelevant content, inadequate topic coverage, article length, and density. With the help of AI, an experience was created that allows users no matter how busy to consume news passively without losing out on vital information about the world they live in. Whether it's at breakfast, on break, or in commute the summarized audible news keeps users informed.

.candrly

Where deeper conversations begin.

Enriching conversations with .candrly. Tackling everything from field interviews and discovery to design exploration, and language foundation. The strategy was aimed at creating a responsive environment that was welcoming, minimalistic, and simple to use. The goal, to bring people together, evoke the sharing of thoughts and stories, shatter boundaries, and ultimately inspire people to create deeper connections.

songshift

Putting playlists where you want them.

I had the opportunity to work directly with the SongShift team on an iOS 11 update, including feature prioritization, user experience enhancements, interface, and interactive exploration and design. The outcome was improved usage clarity, streamlined onboarding, and a new polished design language.

Through great design choices, André helped bring a new level of polish to SongShift. After giving him a breakdown of what our app did, he was able to quickly start mocking up UI/UX. André is very talented and dedicated to his work. I would be more than happy to work with him in future projects.

Wow man. What an incredible experience you've created here. I just wanted to personally reach out and share appreciation. I've been using webflow and researching showcase/templates for guidance for almost 2 years.... and then you made this. Your site rejuvenates my spirit for what we do. With gratitude, thank you brother.

André was an essential asset to my project & I would recommend him to anyone seeking professional design. After showing my app's initial designs & giving a brief overview of what I wanted to change he delivered in a timely manner, adding a more professional cleaner look to the interface. Working with him I got creativity, professionalism & quick understanding of what I was looking for. He was also great at communicating & suggesting ideas of his own.
