Hi, I'm Felix. I lead Product Design teams in London and Remote.

Updated: Late March 2020
As the outbreak 😷of COVID-19 a lot you guys started working from home, I know this was not a choice and many teams where not fully prepared.
If you need free advice around how to do design, manage projects, user test in the remote environment, I'm more than happy to schedule a chat!

Currently leading the distributed Product Design team for a sport and training startup part of well known venture capital firm. Looking forward to assist them throughout their MVP launch for March July.
Open for taking new work from June 2020

In the past 10 years (6 years office and 4 years remote), I worked all sort of projects, big and small from startups to large scale companies that needed to improve, tweak or create new features and solve problems that improve key metrics.

I've led design sprints, client workshops, ran usability testing sessions onsite and remote, worked in multiple environments and have a good degree of adaptability. Got to a place that I can always zoom out to see the whole picture and understand how to maintain a good ratio between product goals and user needs.

Can write basic code and understand HTML, SCSS, JS, React components, Swift, backend dev environment, etc. Always happy to keep my ears open and learn more about the dev environment. Back in the days, I've used to work a lot of web design, including WP templates in PHP!

Worked with clients like Warner Brothers, Google, Facebook, H&M, The Economist, BASF, EY, Microsoft as well as some interesting startups like Beamery, Peerpoint and Ordo Pay.

Aside from listing geeky buzzwords here, I'm a human being passionate about reading psychology books, real estate investment, travelling, eating healthy, nutrition and exercise. Sometimes I post on Twitter about all of these.

Prototyping

I work with a series of prototyping tools like Framer, Principle, Flinto, etc in order to achieve the interaction I want to test. These are great to prove ideas, show concepts beamed directly to anyone’s phone. For many years I found this can ease up the conversation and create an extra bridge between stakeholders, developers and users.
