I create better design experiences for user people.
I’m Shabbir, a UX Designer based in the Netherland. First and foremost, thank you for taking the time to check out my personal website & spend a few moments getting to know me.

My favorite part about being a UX designer is being able to work on complex problems and trying to simplify these problems into solutions that work for people. Since 2006, I've engaged in digital product design and development. I spend most of my days in strategic meetings and communication, either with users or internal teams such as stakeholders, product managers and developers to solve problems and design experiences that make people's lives simpler.

I am fortunate enough that I worked with some big and startups tech companies in the past. Currently, working full time as a Senior UX Designer at HousingAnywhere.

Where I can add value
I start my work right where people have finished their journey. The main purpose of my research is to find out why and for what reason they ended the journey in the middle. Observing people in their situation, clarifying queries, validating hypotheses, getting quantitative / qualitative feedback, and testing prototypes to improve the overall design of the final product. Here are some common research areas where I can add values:
  • Secondary research (Quantitative)
  • Primary research (Qualitative)
  • Empathy mapping
  • User persona
  • User story
  • User journey map
  • User research reports
  • HMW statements
  • Crazy 8s
  • High and low fidelity prototypes
  • Wireframes
  • High-fidelity, pixel-perfect mock-ups
  • Usability reports
  • Heuristic evaluation reports
  • User testing reports and
  • Design pattern libraries, style guides or design systems
Coding knowledge
  • HTML
  • CSS
Design and prototype tools
  • Figma
