My specialty is to create high-fidelity mockups as part of the user experience process, to define a consistent visual language throughout the product, to prepare detailed UI specifications and visual style guidelines. I’m a talented icon designer and I also enjoy doing some interaction design and web design. I feel at ease creating wireframes, illustrations and styling stylesheets.
Adobe Illustrator is my tool of choice. I’m also proficient with Photoshop, Omingraffle, XHTML and CSS.
