Who am I & how can I help you

I’ve been in your shoes

As a self-taught UI/UX Designer, I've been in your shoes. I started to learn design by myself from various sources (books, courses, articles - you name it).

Since then I worked with several startups and enterprise companies, helping them grow their businesses. I had several roles, like UX/UI Designer, Product Designer, Design Lead and Assistant Product Manager; all this gave me the opportunity to see and understand the whole product development ecosystem.

From 2017 I switched to working as a freelancer. In the last couple of years I started to do mentoring sessions on various platforms, helping junior designers learn the basics, improve their skills or upgrade their portfolio.

I’m also the founder of our local design community, where we try to help local designers learn new things and grow together.

2020 came with a new milestone for me. I started to create my design agency - Durran - in order to offer even better services for startups, but also a place where I can nurture the careers of other designers.

Friends, not just clients

You are in good hands

“Daniel is hard working, detail oriented and up to date in UX/UI. His work is something users can’t ignore. When user satisfaction is important, when you’re dealing with millions of users you want to make sure you constantly improve product and UX. Daniel is very logical, highly intellectual with impressive intuition about how users use the products, and he is among the top #3 of the best product people I worked with.“

"Working with Daniel was a real fresh and so much needed experience in such hard times for our project. Using nice and simple methods, he managed to give us a new ambitious perspective which we put into practice in a short time. He works hard and smart, and transforms products into something "wow" :). Looking forward to new projects in which he can help us."

Daniel is an awesome UI/UX designer, not only because of his skill but also his willingness to become a chief stakeholder in your company's success. Daniel goes above and beyond to provide critical feedback, give his thoughts, offer pushback, and act as if he were a longtime member of your team. Hire Daniel because he's skilled; hire Daniel because he actually cares about your product and, therefore, success.
