I have the pleasure of showcasing some of the work I have created and skills improved over the past year. Please enjoy.
As a Product designer not only need to have a core set of skills, but a few key values as well. Embodying these values is just as important as being able to solve an interaction design problem or code up a page.
Because product designers should aim to find that sweet spot between customer needs, business goals and technical feasibility. These three areas are what blur the lines between a designer and a developer in the "traditional sense," and the reason why we've done away with those tired concepts.
Product designers get excited about new ideas, and doesn't always shoot things down. In turn, they aren't afraid to question their decisions, or let other people build off their ideas.
Conversely, a product designer also knows when to say "no." More importantly, she'll know how to say no — backing up her decisions with data, customer feedback or her own past experience. Because she understands the customer needs, business goals and technology, she's able to justify her design decisions and move the product forward rather than run around in circles.
With a BA degree in Industrial Design and experience of over 10 years, I have a full understanding of how to create designs by using of both applied art and applied science to improve the aesthetics and functionality.More about...

I was then reminded of the famous German industrial designer Dieter Rams and his ten principles of “good design”. The straightforward list lays down key points, clearly stating what makes a good design. This information is a timeless source of inspiration that most any designer can appreciate. A good design should be: Innovative, Useful, Aesthetic, Understandable, Unobtrusive, Honest, Long-lasting, Thorough Down to the Last Detail, Environmental Friendly and Possible

When I start your project with a sketch, you will not limit yourself with a single variation of your idea. Through sketching, you can explore multiple options you could take in a particular design concept.
I prefer the concept of striving for "excellence" instead of aiming to achieve "perfection." Excellence is about setting a high standard for yourself and focusing on getting as good as you can possibly be. It is ultimately inward focused.
