As a designer with a focus in user centered experience and interface design, I am all about building products for the people who will use them. I like to gather requirements, analyze user research, ideate on possible solutions, and iterate based on user feedback and key metrics.
I enjoy working with people who are proactive about using human behavior and user centered design to their advantage when building products. Research, ideation, wireframing and prototyping, are all skills that drive my design process. I wrote about my process here if you are curious.
I’m always eager to build relationships with my clients and partners. Mutual understanding as well as establishing a clear communication channel is at the center of designer/client dynamics and crucial to the success of any project.
Throughout the past decade I have had a great time meeting and collaborating with amazing professionals from different walks of life, mainly CEOs, app creators, entrepreneurs and small business owners. Many of them have turned into long term work relationships and partnerships. Here is what they have to say about my work:
Hicham is very thoughtful and sensitive to both client needs and user needs. He is more psychologically aware and sensitive than most designers. He is quite responsive and conscientious and will respond with urgency and flexibility to any unanticipated challenges in the project timeline. He likes the clean and minimalist look that is increasingly proven effective rather than the busy look that many designers bring. He takes feedback extremely well and responds promptly to make the needed adjustment.Shirzad Chamine
I needed super fast turn around on this design effort. Hicham came through for me again. He is the best designer on Upwork.Tabitha Nash
Hicham is fantastic. Will definitely be using him again. Highly recommend.Edward M
Hicham is an good communicator, very knowledgeable and does excellent work. I plan to work with him on an ongoing basis on additional projects.Grant Nguyen
Hicham worked at Red Beard and performed admirably within the product development group. He performed tasks ranging from designing to building packages and products. He also helped us to revamp both our internal and external business strategies.
At Red Beard, he was given an opportunity to work as an individual with minimum supervision. Under this environment, he executed the goals that were setout for him in a manner undistinguishable from an employee.
I am certain that no matter wherever Hicham works, he will be an excellent help to both his co-workers and employerÇetin Yıldırım

Hicham just successfully completed the fourth project for us. He has broad, and deep, design and creative skills. This was a challenging, and tight timeframe, video project that could not have been done without the very strong communication and cooperation we have together. I look forward to working together soon on the next project.Andrew Owens
