a long story short
I'm Matthew, an award winning Product UX/UI Designer with an expertise in travel and hospitality domain. I started my career 10 years ago as a freelance web designer for a local start-up, however, it did not take me long to top the Lead User Experience and Interface chart for bringing impact via innovation to international start-ups and established corporations.
I had the privilege to work with companies such a Disney, Samsung, Sony, Adidas, BMW, Toyota, W Hotels, Lufthansa and many more strong brands.
I have over 10 years of hands-on experience in making complex interfaces approachable. I drive the end-to-end user experience ensuring that we build the minimal viable product incorporate user centered design techniques and optimize the experience by analyzing usage data. I practice user centered design principles basing design decisions via 5 simple steps: Empathy, Define, Ideate, Prototype & Test.
My mission is to deliver the most efficient, engaging, innovative and high-quality experience & narrative to my users.
As a detail-oriented individual with a passion for excellence, I am adept at listening to your needs, then analyzing and implementing the best solution.
