The value of consistency
User Experience Design Team Lead
I'm responsible for understanding the client's needs and support the design team to create a crystal clear project process with defining and deciding which methodologies to follow. Making detailed research and creating design concepts are also part of my daily professional life. Besides all this design process, mentoring to developing a new design system approach with the team is the most amusing challenge on my journey.
