WHO AM I

Hello, I’m Ferdinand,
Creative Technologist & User Experience Designer based in Johannesburg – I create digital products with knowledge and passion.

With more than a decade of experience I tackle a broad variety of disciplines in the process of creating meaningful products that make a real difference. With carefully selected tools and skills I express my visions ranging from product design to the creation of user experience up to development and delivery.

My distinctive strategic thinking helps me to pinpoint the holistic scope of a product and evolve it by adding new business ideas, innovations and values that meet user needs as well as business objectives. Besides building user flows, information architecture and wireframes, tailor-made interactive prototypes

are constantly putting concepts and ideas to the test and emphasize the user-centered approach in my work. I work with the latest techniques in web development and my agile workflow is the result of the precisely combined tools and strategies that include object oriented patterns, build scripts, pre-processors and minification, source code management, testing as well as deployment.
