A Story of hardwork, determination, and perseverance.

Sometimes people are beautiful. Not in looks. Not in what they say, just in what they are.

my story
A freelance UI/IX Designer with satisfied clients
around the world

My Process, and how I work.

When I start working on a project, I try to get all the information, and data from my client that are relevant to the project. Goals, demographics, preferred aesthetics, etc. I then start researching about the industry, competition, and the best way to go about the

After I have all the data that I need, I start working on the wireframe, and prototype using Balsamiq. After the prototyping phase is finished, and the wireframes are finalized, and approved. This is where I start doing the visual designs using Photoshop, Illustrator or sometimes Sketch. After the visual designs are approved, I then start coding the designs to html/css/js with responsiveness, and best practices in mind.

What I use

I use a number of tools that make design and development much easier. For rapid prototyping and wireframes, I use balsamiq. For creating the actual visual designs of the application or website. I use Photoshop, Illustrator and Sketch interchangeably.

With development, I use SASS/LESS for my CSS preprocessor, with Grunt automating the repetitive tasks (concatenation, minification, etc). I use Foundations grid for making sure that the site will be responsive, and code the application elements from scratch.

When deploying servers, I use Digital Ocean for my VPS, and use NGINX as my server software. With Varnish as my HTTP accelerator, Memcache for caching, and PHP-FPM as an alernative to plain PHP. This ensures blazing fast servers, and load times for my applications.

I use WordPress for simple websites, and Laravel for full fledged applications.
