Hey, I’m Ari 👋🏼

Product Designer that helps (early-stage) startups define and validate their MVP. Currently at Conde Nast. Available for freelance projects.

I evaluate how products/services are used in context, in order to remove behavioural barriers, and design solutions that are desirable, viable, and useful to users.

I specialise in User Research, Usability Testing, Visual Design and Prototyping. Check out my work below.
