Hi, Im Hass.

I design apps.

I help build them too.

ABOUT HASS

With almost 10 years experience designing, prototyping and scaling up highly-rated mobile apps on iOS and Android, I want to join a team focused on using the latest tech to build a great consumer product.

SKILLS

I can do everything it takes to take an app from concept, to design, through to implementation; including (but not limited to) running Design Sprints, performing user research, building interactive prototypes, and producing all the artifacts required of app design – wireframes, user flows, mockups, assets and specifications.

I am most passionate about building app prototypes and putting them in front of users to gain insights that help iterate designs further before moving forward with development. It’s way better to uncover UX issues during design research than after app release.

    I worked on projects that helped grow this leading image app and creative community from 65 million users to over 90 million today. As the first and most senior designer reporting to the UX director in the SF office, I helped grow the UX team from 5 to almost 30, evangelizing the latest prototyping, research and design tools along the way.

     
  • Couchsurfing • 2013 – 2015

    I redesigned the iOS/Android apps and website as part of a relaunch of the entire service, contributing to user growth from 6 million in 2013 to over 10 million in 2015. The design language I established remains in place today and created a lasting foundation to build new features on.

     
  • Rise • 2014

    I designed both the user and provider interfaces for an app providing affordable 1:1 personal diet coaching from top nutrition experts. The app retains its original UI/UX whose product design was informed using the Design Sprint framework I learned at Google Ventures.
