Hello I'm

Faisal Al-Da'aja

User Experience Designer

About Me

Hello, The design is not just thinking about usability, covering all use cases and scenarios, but should also be thinking around the product from the awareness stage to the loyalty stage. This means the UX and CX work together to find all correct flows for users and customers.

Also, the professional design doesn't stop at this point but extends to the attention of all audiences, for example: the business owners, developers, product managers and all users types are your audiences. This is called a "human experience" HX.

Beyond that, the wise and deep thinking is essential for each designer to maintain a balance between the consistency of your product and other products used by potential users.

After 12 years of experience in digital design and based on qualitative & quantitative analyses of how people are using technology and what are the needs and goals of the audiences. I can say that I bring an engineering perspective and a creative problem-solving approach to build products and experiences people love and easy to use and how can make things better.

All of that came after I have been designing/developing mobile & web-based platforms for many years. And I honed my craft at companies like Maktoob, Yahoo!, N2V, MBC Group, Souq.com and Amazon.com.
