My specialty lies in flawlessly executing Design Sprints, a skill honed through direct training under the guidance of the author himself, Jake Knapp.
I craft detailed, groundbreaking, and meticulously organized Design Systems, empowering products for single or multi-brand experiences.
I propel teams to high performance levels by infusing them with my contagious enthusiasm, dynamic energy, and a genuine love for designing digital products.
The cornerstone of tackling any UX challenge is rooted in empathizing with the customer. As a seasoned designer, I prioritize being vigilant about my biases and assumptions, recognizing their potential to obstruct a true understanding of customer needs. Therefore my UX process begins with an in-depth knowledge of the customer, allowing for defined, ideated, and tested solutions that genuinely cater to their preferences and expectations.
"Whenever Cris would be around the table I knew he would elevate the bar on what we were building. I.e.: challenging our approach, catching the limit of our systems, or polishing a detail. Every time his opinions were very much on points, and would make UX better for users. Cris guides stakeholders trough UX decision with assertiveness and ownership balancing urgency of business needs with being very user-centric, always ensuring that the end product remains true to core UX principles.In addition to his core competencies, Cris drives team spirit that fosters camaraderie among team members. This not only elevates the mood but also amplifies productivity and innovation. I feel confident that he would be an invaluable asset to any team."

"Cristian's work exceeds the norm for UI designers. Meticulously accurate, modern and creative, he embodies the very best in what one looks for when creating high performing, production level websites and interfaces. With a keen eye on UX, along with strong capabilities with rapid prototyping tools, he really is the full package. Most importantly, Cristian is not only a great designer, but an exceptional team member. He is a natural, aspiring leader that is caring in nurturing younger team members, and understands that constraints and limitations of working in a high paced environment. In addition, Cristian also manages to understand the concept of holistic design and branding, keeping styleguides and brand consistency in check across the board.

"I was impressed how Cris could tackle multiple design projects across multiple teams, he was always able to joggle in between initiatives with ease. The user was always the star of any proposals Cris made and together we always sought to validate our assumptions with data and user behaviour trends. I wholeheartedly recommend Cris , he would definitely be an assest on any team."
Monica Branzan - Product Manager @ Taxdoo
"When he joined our team, there was pressure to establish a better way of promoting our partners’ deals. At the same time, he was tasked with delivering a better UX for our customers. Thanks to his skills, knowledge of design principles, and user empathy, he not only delivered designs from lo-fi to hi-fi, including ready-to-test prototypes, but also crucially enhanced our company's understanding of our users’ needs. Cris is always happy to step outside of his comfort zone and to learn something new - which is what he did when he organized a Design Brand Sprint with the entire management to create a shared vision and mission. I highly recommend Cris to any team that is serious about building great digital products, through next-level UX."
