Marcelo is clearly a bright and talented individual that brings new ideas to life. A true out of the box thinker, highly motivated and attention to detail is top notch. It is a great pleasure to work with Marcelo and would recommend his services anytime.

My Specialities

 

icons01

Visualising Ideas

The best way to present an idea is to visualise it. It makes your idea alive. In many cases, visualisation helps users understand the story that a business wants to tell them.

 

icons02

Designing Interfaces

My main area of expertise is UI design. Nowadays, interface is a very important part of the online product. The right UI will guarantee your success.

 

icons03

Building Products

Building products is my passion. It’s more than just design. It’s about understanding the company and its clients. It’s about complex processes and joinery to achieve success.

 

icons04

Creating Concepts

Every great design starts with an idea/concept. An idea is what forms the fundamental parts. It’s very important that all the fundamental parts are well defined and working.

icons05

Growth Hacking

HACKING It’s not just about numbers and conversions. It’s about understanding the users and knowing how to engage them at the right time in the right place.

icons06

Improving UX

User experience is an essential part of the service/product nowadays. Creating experience starts with the value proposition. After that comes usability-how easy a product is to use.

Work Experience

I enjoy collaborating with creative technologists on immersive platforms, integrating smart user experiences with a huge visual direction, and exploring the possibilities that design can offer to change people’s lifes and I did with all this brands.

Mental Models: Aligning Design Strategy with Human Behavior

Buy now

Indi’s work spans a number of decades, from the mid-80’s when the desktop metaphor was replacing command line and menu-based systems, to the mid-90’s when the Web first toddled onto the scene, to now, when designers are intent on crafting good experiences.

After 10 years of consulting, Indi founded Adaptive Path with six other partners in 2001, all hoping to spread good design around the world, making things easier for people everywhere. Indi’s mental models have helped both start-ups and large corporations discover and support customer behaviors they didn’t think to explore at first.

She has written a book about the mental model method, Mental Models – aligning design strategy with human behavior, published by Rosenfeld Media. She is now consulting independently, conducting mental model workshops, and mentoring.
