We are a small team of two, craving to build compelling experiences.
We are not just pixel pushers — even though we enjoy creating compelling visuals and UI — we aim to build meaningful experiences for users and fulfill business goals while striving for progress & authenticness. Luckily our journey brought us to do what we love the most, being able to focus our effort on building a more straightforward path for other designers around the world and change the overall betterness of their work through incremental improvements and bite-size learning.
We met in London in 2016; since then, our learning and curiosity regarding user experience have never stopped. During our early years immersed in the beauty and mess of this stunning city, we have learned tons, failed even more and grown up through design challenges and problems worth solving; this mindset has been preserved and currently reflected every day in our passion for digital products.
However, some blockers getting in the way of our UX/UI design workflow were crushing us. We were living a nightmare of questions, doubts, and procedural struggles that slowed down or even stopped our strategic thinking process and drained our creative juice. We had to find a solid solution.
Since we discovered Notion, the note-taking app, we have fought to remove clutter in our lives and centralize UX work by collaborating and relying on one source of truth. This tool helped us to organize everything, converge ideas and make sense of all our best practice, research findings, books, and overall knowledge regarding the product design realm. Today with UX Chunks, we aim to push the boundaries of product design learning by bringing up standard but fluid procedures that would adapt contextually to any (or most) designers’ problems.
