Helping startups to focus much more on user experience, to simplify and improve the quality of their products or services, to select the right technologies because design is also how it works. Some clients: macweb.com, xproline.io.

For MacWeb, I made the new website, the new branding, defined the new strategy, built a stronger team. The sales went up 50% in 2023.
