If you want to understand how a lion hunts don’t go to the zoo. Go to the jungle.

Hi, my name is Makson, but you can call me Maks (AKA Max). In 8 years working as a designer I was able to work and collaborate with startups from early-stage to established ones such as Movile, PlayKids, and Pipefy. For me, User Experience Design works along with Businesses KPI's.

My routine as a Product Designer is focused on creating products through research, data analysis, qualitative and quantitative user research, usability tests and user interface design. My passion as a designer hits its highest point when design meets data and both start working together.

As for my personal routine, I have skateboarding and illustrating as my main hobbies. I'm also always up for visiting a new coffee shop anytime and to talk about how design can impact businesses on design and startups events everytime I get a new opportunity.
