Work Experience

Brokoli Mobile Software

UI/UX Designer

Mobile devices affect the way we interact, share and communicate with others. Therefore, it is crucial to gain a rich picture of what makes up the detail of mobile users’ lives, the things they do and use.

As part of a mobile-oriented passionate team, I try to understand the requirements and needs of mobile users, develop prototype designs and eventually evaluate visually responsive solutions that provide both functionality and pleasant user experience.
