KAYAK

Rethinking baggage and fees.

As the travel industry changes and new fees are introduced, we are called to come up with a solution that brings transparency of fares and fees to the consumer. To solve for this, we designed a baggage fee assistant that helps you calculate the total cost of your flight tickets.

PHILIPS

An augmented reality app before snapchat.

I was hired by Philips Germany to create an AR experience for their top-selling razor machines that was launched during the “Express Yourself” campaign. At the time, AR was only making it’s first steps into the world and I was called to create a seamless experience with real-time facial analysis & feature tracking for videos & photos.

lime

All-in-one app for mental and physical health.

With a clean, visual interface and simple yet imaginary details, Lime has managed to bring it all in one. My role in this project was to create the brand identity and oversee the user experience and product design.

I strive for two things in design: simplicity and delightfulness.

Creativity is more than just being different. Anybody can be weird, that’s easy. What’s hard is to make the simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity.
