Hello, I'm Aysun.

UX/UI Designer who crafts awesome digital experiences through user interactions, visual design, prototyping and coding.

My experience of working with marketers and digital agencies for the past 8 years can be the asset you require to grow your project, get leads or sales and make a strong, memorable impression to your potential customers or clients.

My Story

I made my first steps in the design/front-end industry when I started playing with Macromedia Flash in 2007-2008. I was curious and amazed about creating animations, since I also had a passion of drawing which was discovered earlier in middle school. Until then, I was the computer guy of the neighbourhood, the internet person with a couple of blogs, the power user, the gamer.

Still, everything changed when I borrowed a Photoshop CS2 book. From there it rolled like a snowball, creating the first poster design for the high school prom, going to college and collaborating with the University print department where I was designing book covers for professors, ending with my first international freelance clients in 2010-2011.

It started modestly, but before I knew, in a few years I was growing and expanding my client base, skills and services, while trying to finish an university degree.

Over the years I worked mainly with clients of digital marketing agencies from U.S., Europe, Australia where I learned important skills when it comes to designing user experiences that convert and generate sales. These skills also made it necessary for me to learn front end development. It was not enough researching and designing wireframes & mockups, I also wanted to bring them to life.

Present

Fast forward to current days, I'm a senior UX/UI designer who is passionate about front-end and everything an user interacts with or experiences.

My work style is organised, rigurous and I move fast. I'm a shorcuts junkie in the tools I work with. I observe and reiterate and try to improve things to at least a "well done" state when time is an issue and an MVP is needed.

Combining my knowledge of design with front end development, I can bring value on large projects which involve design systems, interface architectures, collaboration with multiple team members, getting feedback and adjusting on the go.
