I have worked together and led multidisciplinary teams across various domains like Mobile, Consumer Electronics, Healthcare and Packaging designing and developing high impact Products and Experiences for the European, American and Asian markets for over 9 years. My last corporate engagement was with Samsung Electronics as Head of Mobile Product Design in Samsung Studio (south-west-asia).

Currently, I help Start-ups, SMEs and Corporates to design and develop products and services through various Experience/Business Innovation practices.

I really enjoy being an actively contributing member of the Start-up ecosystem. I was part of Google Launchpadweek, Warsaw Accelerator, Wolves Summit, UX Poland and many other programme and events as mentor and workshop facilitator for startups and entrepreneurs.

My key interest lies in the realms common to Design, Technology and Business, focusing on creating larger Impact, Revenue and Unique Experiences.

CUSTOMER IMMERSION

If you have got your customers right, one half of the job is done. Unfortunately, most of the startups are technology oriented than customers, which hits really hard often after the pilot run. Know your customers well, and raise your chances to get it right in the first go.

VALUE PROPOSITIONS

Every startup want to offer the richest product or service. But does the market and users really need it? Are these offerings built on a sustainable model? There are atleast a handful of questions that new businesses need to ask to themselves.

RUN YOUR MVP

Once you have the customers, value propositions and business model in place, it's time to hit the market and do a reality check. A well designed MVP (Minimum Viable Product) saves time, costs, and most importantly the entrepreneurial spirit. An early and timely pivot often turns out to be a major game changer.


DESIGN IS THE FIRST TOUCH POINT, AND OFTEN THE MOST IMPORTANT ONE!

In the run to get the technology right, design aspects are often overlooked in the startup world. And it comes to a big surprise to many startups that even after they made it to market, the next-door-startup achieved a huge competitive advantage in no time, and now it's too late to go back.

Design induces harmony in products and services, it seamlessly marries the tangible with the intangible, to create meaningful and valuable experiences for all the stakeholders.

PRODUCT DESIGN

A well designed product creates an unbreakable relation with it's user. The form, colors, materials, finishes and patterns are not just visual elements, they also reflect the dreams and aspirational value of the users.

USER EXPERIENCE DESIGN

If you want to touch the subconcious layers of the users mind, definitely take the need for appropriate user experience seriously. An average user takes less than 1/20th of a second to determine if they would like to continue using the product or not.

SERVICE DESIGN

Services have become integral part of the product offering in todays world. Service design efforts helps to design the product according to the needs of customers, so that the service is user-friendly, competitive and relevant to the customers.


TECHNOLOGY IS THE BRAIN, MAKE YOUR PRODUCT EFFICIENT AND RELIABLE

It needs no mention that Ideas have no value, unless executed. Most of the entrepreneurs have great ideas, but they often find it difficult to move forward, to give the right shape to ideas, often unable to find the right team, investment etc. We help entrepreneurs and innovators give life to their ideas and dreams.
