šŸ‘‹   Hi, Iā€™m Simeon! I love what I do.

Iā€™m a user experience architect with 11 years of experience and a background in mathematics. Iā€™m currently helping businesses through the Upwork.com platform. Recently, I worked as the Lead UX Architect at SimpleBet, a company whose mission is to power the future of fan engagement.

Philosophy

The devil is in details. That’s why I pay pedantic attention to all details in the project. From pixel perfection to documentation layout, I strive for impeccability in everything.

Think twice, cut once. I’m a problem solver. I love hard and tricky situations, which makes me step out of my comfort zone and make a breakthrough.

Learn and teach. I learn all my life and what I love more than that is to give knowledge to people. Educating my clients in the art of user experience is an essential part of my work. Teaching my children is something else šŸ™‚

Services

User Interface Design

Simple, clean, and organized. Consistency and familiarity are vital factors here. The design system and style guide are the right way of thinking.

User Experience Architecture

UX is all about how it feels & works in a delightful symbiosis. The key point is to start with the big picture and drill down from there. Attention to all the small details is the way to achieve perfection.

Wireframing & Prototyping

Mid, low, and high-fidelity prototypes play an essential role in my workflow. They help to visualize and test any idea rapidly, present a complicated flow, or a mobile game-like experience.

Design Strategy

Bridge the gap between business and design. I strive first to understand your business model and your goals and align them with your customers’ goals and needs.

Design Systems

Every project has a design system. Set of rules, guidelines, components, patterns, and interactions that bring consistency and scalability to the product.

User-Centered Design

The user is the king. I use methodologies and techniques to put the user in the center of the game. Empathy is crucial here and the ability to observe people and decide what they need, because they don’t know it. To practice user-centered design, you should live your life user-centric.

User Testing

I test all the time. Small, big, quick, slow ā€“ test early ā€“ gather data, iterate, move forward. Contextual inquiry is my favorite method of gathering insights how and why people act a certain way.
