Dan Pușcaru

Product Designer, UX Researcher

I have a 10+ year experience in design, spanning from UI&UX for digital products to visual design & branding for startups & new businesses.

At present, I'm focused on solving design problems by employing a structured but flexible process which leads to consistent & delightful experiences both to customers and their user bases alike.
