„Alex is a top notch designer with fantastic attention to detail – without losing sight of the big picture. He’s a problem solver, collaborative with a strong commitment in working out solutions. He never had problems stepping out of his comfort zone to support others in times of conflict or crunch times. Alex is a highly reliable person earning him trust and respect throughout the entire company. His knowledge of design and deep understanding of our users made him a crucial part of our organisation. He is always a pleasure to work with elevating everyone around him to work on a much higher level. I sincerely hope we work together again releasing kick-ass products.“

„Working with Alex was a real pleasure. He is one of the most determined colleagues I had the chance of working with in my professional life so far. Alex is carefully understanding the user, his needs, the business environment and constraints before making and challenging decisions regarding UX and UI. His deep knowledge of the industry made him a reliable partner. I never experienced any hesitation or doubts – getting his hands dirty in times of close deadlines and conflict. He is surely missed and I’m confident it won’t be the last time we got our hands dirty together.“

„Besides being a great human being, Alex is one of the most talented designers I have met so far. I've worked with him on multiple projects at this point and I am always blown away by his engagement, calmness and knowledge. He brings a clear understanding and vision to the table, always asks the right questions and is not afraid to fail. I love this.“
