Tina does an amazing job balancing what’s on her plate while staying on top of the latest developments in UX/UI and brings a steady stream of innovation and new ideas to the studio daily. Her communication style is ‘no-bull’, she keeps things clear and straight to the point, which is a delight when you’re in the trenches of problem-solving.
Working with Tina is a developer’s dream!
Her incredible expertise in UI and UX design converted perfectly in every technical aspect of my work. It’s rare to find a designer with such a broad vision and knowledge, that can deeply understand the development process, and easily find solutions and innovative approaches with a constant respect for technical limitations and requirements.
I’ve worked with countless designers over the course of the last decade in digital, and Tina is truly top notch. While checking all the boxes you’d expect of a UX & Design specialist, there are skills that Tina brings which are rare. A no BS approach. Pushing design further when you think it’s already there. Empathy driven design. All while being in touch with the most current design trends.
