He falls into that small category of designers who can do great design, but also has the technical skills and know how to get the job done. His work is both thoughtful and well executed. Kevin is also an unfailingly kind person. Any design studio would be lucky to have him.

He possess superior UI skills and he is able to translate high-level requirements into interaction flows and fast prototypes, and transform them into beautiful, intuitive, and functional user interfaces. He is very creative and this helps him to reach solutions with his unique way of seeing things. He also knows how to explain difficult concepts to satisfy stake holder’s points of view. Kevin is very talented and knowledge designer and one of our most dedicated employees. Somedays, we would go more than 16 hours straight working to solve a problem or a deadline. Thanks to his work ethics and his ability to unify the team, our culture had improve a lot. He became a leader quickly in the team and a key team member for us as a UX designer/product manager. I know, we will keep creating great things at Antsquare for long time and I am very grateful to have him in the team.
