Mobile app design became more important than the web in 2020. With increasing app usage, designers learn more and more every day. Technology changes fast and creatives need to be up-to-date with the latest trends and best practices.
Mobile technology changes our life. We buy, learn, and find the latest news from the apps. Apps develop so much with AI, so it’s possible to talk with your virtual friend even.
In order to create innovative solutions, designers need to find the latest inspiration and techniques from the best design examples. …
Sometimes, it seems like marketers and designers speak different languages. You have marketers focusing on the timeline, designers focusing on the creation process. They don’t understand each other. Your team is losing time.
Working in the tech industry for over seven years, I collaborate with marketers a lot. I communicated with different levels of marketers. There were entry-level and senior ones. They all varied by mindset and strategy. All communicate with a unique approach.
During all this time, I know exactly how marketers and designers need to collaborate. The right communication and responsibility understanding are key for them. …
Why you always hear about the iPhone? Is it the best friend for any designer? Why all recommend you buying the iPhone if you’re a designer? If you use your Mac to design products, there is no need for iPhone at all?

I’m proud of myself. I achieved so many things I wanted before — from being an independent designer to a Medium writer and public speaker.

The best email a freelancer will ever receive: “I love your work. I’m looking for a specialist like you to help me with my project.”
Being a designer for over seven years, I know exactly how important are my clients. I always try to update my portfolio and read the latest news about trends and technology updates.
But what I really hate is sales. I don’t promote my services; neither have a salesperson in my team. No. I believe that the quality of my work brings me results.
You can’t promote services if they have poor quality.
Here is a quick example of how people reach out to me. I don’t look for clients. Instead, they are looking for specialists and find my design portfolio or Medium articles. They see the quality and decide to reach out to me. …
