Designed for Infected Mushroom and Polyverse Music, Gatekeeper is a cutting-edge volume modulation plugin that has been described as the “Swiss army knife of creative expression.” Not only does Gatekeeper unveil a whole new world of sound design and production for everyone from amateurs mixing in their garages to professionals performing in front of crowds, it does so in a way that makes playing with sound logical, fun and, yes, beautiful.
Gatekeeper evolved from a basic, flat interface of tired buttons and knobs to a sharp, colorful tool that is unexpected yet totally intuitive. In the process of designing Gatekeeper, I was guided by the question “What does this do?” constantly seeking to understand how elements work together and in sequence, and how to prioritize elements and connect them in the most user-friendly way.
Gatekeeper was created in a process not of graphic design, but logical design. A profound understanding of user experience design guided its evolution, resulting in a finished product that is organized, straightforward and built logically—with users in mind. Gatekeeper does not compromise—or even affect—sound; rather, it presents a platform that quickly becomes second nature to the user, putting sound first.
Designed carefully on a grid, Gatekeeper is not only beautiful but also perfectly functional, down to every last pixel. Buttons are spaced to make transitions completely seamless. High-priority elements are front and center, while secondary effects can be hidden, in order to avoid cluttering the interface and experience. This is a product that promises to work just as you expect it to.
The manipulator is a powerful vocal instrument, designed for Infected Mushroom. The process began with a rough functional draft of the synth, lots of knobs, faders, and controllers that yet to be defined and prioritized. We work together to build an instrument that will inspire musicians and that will be fun, accessible and creative both for the expert or the novice users. Manipulator was reviewed in audio magazines worldwide and got great reviews for its design.
IWISH is a synthesizer that uses a control keyboard to cut audio into small sound loops. The loop’s length is determined by the frequency of the note selected with the keyboard.
This product is designed for musicians, producers, and sound engineers, and can be integrated into an existing setup. Our vision was to create a futuristic musical tool inspired by musical equipment such as guitar pedals and light & touch surfaces; IWISH can be used to simulate robot voices, alien landings, or any strange, out-of-this-world sound you’ve never been able to vocalize before.
The graphic objects were inspired by Infected Mushroom; in the same way they have created music that is unexpected and unique, but with great attention to detail, we too scattered features and buttons in a way that seems incidental, but was planned with great care.
The creation process of IWISH included numerous rounds of sketch presentation and many proposed options, all of which were accompanied by joint discussions to examine and merge ideas and features. Relying on the multitude of sketches and options, group members were able to work together to incorporate colors, elements, and shapes that they loved.
The RC car experience has not changed much in the last 30 years. Tilt offers an exciting and innovative approach to the RC.
The car is designed for kids around the age of ten who love speed and control. The special remote control that hosts the mobile enables you to feel closer to the actual experience and the world of cars. The remote can be tilted to the side and can be pushed forward and backwards- as these actions are carried out the car responds simultaneously. The remote hosts all different types of mobile phones. The visual language is both rough and dynamic, with a strong color that communicates power and strength. The information and typography design are inspired by the tilting movements and angels. The minimalist use of colors gives indication when the car is in the right direction and moving at the right speed for its chosen route. In order to get to the right angle at the right speed the text needs to be green. Kids can choose different types of challenges and can compete against their friends, locally or globally. The car is designed in a simple way that elevates the technology of the wheels.

Synther is a layout concept for a synth, inspired by supercars, architecture, and funky geometric shapes. The layout is divided into four sections. In the middle, there is an XY component that a producer can drag his finger and play with the sound in a totally different way. Even though the layout is divided into few sections it still gives a sense of a solid frame that communicates creativity and trust.
Virtual Showroom is a tool that was designed for use in a showroom to select and examine products. The app introduces a new way to experience showroom environments both for brands and consumers.
The design is precise, clean, and rich in detail to support the company visual branding. Virtual Showroom provides every product’s visual and meta information and supports the internal sell-in process for creating an incentive for factories and companies to promote their brands by using 3D visualization. Appearance combinations and assortment line sheets can be created in order to better present a suggested assortment of products.
By providing uncluttered visual representation of products, data buyers can easily access information about what they would like to buy without additional stress or interference. Cross-platform eCommerce mechanisms enable selecting products by brand statistics, local market needs, and company history and this is all integrated into a beautiful and easy-to-use gestured interface.
Virtual Showroom is inspired by fashion shows, and is designed to be clean and minimalistic for use on iPads and large-screen TVs. The product reel offers a new and advanced way to browse, examine, and experience full collections with the help of smooth animations and ultra-sharp renderings, buyers can almost feel the material, almost closing the gap between virtual and 3D worlds.
Features, design elements, and components, including user flows, new gesture ideas, and behaviours , were communicated via sketches and drafts in conversation with the client.
Statistics, data and empiric information don’t always have to be something boring, with a unique gamifying approach using the four keys of fun (easy, hard, serious and people) such data become playful and cool. Pushing the boundaries of fingers gestures invite a new world of opportunities.

Muvingapp features a straightforward process, tailored for mobile phones and tablets, that simplifies communication between movers and moving. Users turn the application into a home by photographing each room in 360 degrees and then selecting the items you wish to move with a simple tap. Your selection is sent to the mover for preparing a price quote for the moving job. It’s that simple.
The interface is built for flexibility, it works for studio apartments as well as multiple room homes with warehouses, swimming pools, and basements. Backtracking and advanced selection options are incorporated into the design, allowing for “automatic packing” and “full service” for single rooms up to entire homes.
The core of the process is the item selection screen, which I designed with so the user feels like they’re walking around in their home. Each room is showing in panorama, without interruption, to set the scene for winning maximum points and successfully moving house. We thoroughly tested every step of the moving survey to guarantee relevancy and necessity, and the Muvingapp team was fully involved in the design process.
When there's no Internet, we all go into disaster mode, frantically pressing restart buttons and calling customer support. Our ISPs have the privilege of exceptionally simple, easy work with huge impact on our daily lives. Trego offers a simple system for viewing available networks and their transmission quality; in crowded places, like airports and coffeeshops. Trego's great interface saves you time and money.
Each network has broadcast strength, and all network devices use bandwidth for different purposes, such as videos, games, and downloading music. Trego has visual control monitors that show all data traffic, and devices connected to the router are arranged visually to show what is nearest and farthest.
The data provided by the device to the router gives a clear picture of whether there is a problem with the system, by a warning system that maps faults and prioritizes them according to importance.
To create a typographic system, I set rules, definitions, and limitations that make the design simpler. The colors were chosen to create a harmonious design template, colors that are pleasing to the eye but different enough from each other to allow users to easily differentiate between data. Different designs give warnings and alerts to shorten the amount of time it takes to solve connection problems.
Every second count in day trading and even the most momentary distraction can lead to a huge loss. A functional, practical, and simple design optimized the Better Trader app to improve response time and keep traders focused.
Distractions aren’t an option for traders. Knowing this, I incorporated an alert system into the product that notifies users 5 minutes prior to new data release. There is a countdown to scheduled events, and the system is conducive to ultimate focus for anyone, anytime.
Island Cigar Factory manufactures cigars of the highest quality, using the world’s best tobacco and complying with the strictest industry standards. To optimize the purchase experience, I remapped the product types and reprioritized the products according to market research and testing results. Most importantly, I created a system for recommending related products, and how to incorporate that into the purchasing process.
A sophisticated product merits a sophisticated design. I was inspired by classic, clean advertising, but wanted to incorporate a modern twist. The palette relies on one color to strengthen the visual branding and create a graphic language that is inherently memorable. By utilizing classic fonts in different sizes, strategic use of color, and a simple layout, the design that was created is versatile, dynamic, and ideal for eCommerce.
Optitex built their brand on tidiness and timeliness, and my goal was to highlight those qualities. The design distinguishes between similar contextual elements to quickly differentiate between nearly-identical patterns and gives users the option to customize their work environment within the familiar Optitex workspace.
The redesign was focused on simplicity. I examined every element, measuring functionality and relevance to the overall brand language. Ultimately, I elected to strengthen the color palette remove lines, and change font sizes to optimize the site’s UI and simplify the design.
The new set of icons are familiar but fresh. Working with the size and colors from the original design, I created a custom series that recalled the icons users already recognised, but worked together as part of a coherent design language used throughout the product.
