Thanks for stopping by!
My name is Adrian and I am a Web / UI designer based in Chicago. I have over seven years of corporate and freelancing experience in design and can say I'm still in love with it. I love the everyday challenge and the reward of coming up with the right solution.
Designing for users has been my focus since the beginning. My motto is, "No user without a good experience, no good experience without functionality, no functionality without beauty."
Although I'm proficient in the Adobe Creative Suite (half of my everyday tools are Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign), I also love to code. Writing HTML and figuring out the best CSS solutions is as thrilling as visual design. Designing with code in mind made my life easier so many times, and who doesn’t like an easy life?

Making awesome stuff every daybeautiful + functional + useful
The exponential growth of mobile devices and platforms has changed the way we design websites and the way users interface with our designs.
In my design process I always keep an eye on responsiveness. I make my layouts flexible and adaptive to users’ devices to provide the best experience, fitted to its screen real estate.
With the multitude of blogs on the web, clients expect to be able to easily update the content of their sites when the project is done, without my involvement.
I work with the most well-known CMSs such as WordPress and Drupal. But I also have experience with Sitefinity, a well-known commercial CMS solution.
Web and mobile UI
Less artsy and more functional, web and mobile apps UI is where the product vision meets the usability and aesthetics.
The process, work-flow, and user data gathered are equally important. The final result always has to be an intuitive interface that makes tasks easy and natural. I accomplished that in my projects.
Branding and identity
Here is where problem solving meets visual impact. The perfect idea and its execution are what I strive for in every project.
Colorful or monochromatic, hidden in negative space or right in your face, my logos extract and render the essence of a client's mission statement. I like to say every time: mission accomplished.
