THANK YOU FOR VISITING THIS CORNER OF THE VIRTUAL WORLD.
LET ME INTRODUCE MYSELF; BASICALLY FEW: WHAT, WHY, WHERE & HOW...
BUSINESS VALUE OF
Through this website I am sharing insight about my work, life's journey, interest in photography, visual communication design and
web technologies. I have worked for global brands on the crossroads of design thinking, digital design and project management.
ThinkDesignManage represents my systematic approach to ensure business value of design and creativity in solving problems and delivering customer centric solutions.
My passion for photography informs and affirms my creativity and innovative thinking. In the past few years I have had the chance to master my photography skills, and learn from colleagues in the design industry. Trips to Cuba, China, South Africa, Australia or Middle East provided inspiration and subjects. Photography in many ways is a tangible evidence of creativity.
GET IN TOUCH & CONNECT
DESIGN is about connecting things...
My work domain is enabling connection between people, information and ideas across industries: whether I work with a cross functional team on a given project, or provide consultancy delivering added value ideas and creative work. I enjoy projects that inspire and transform customer experience whether through a holistic service design program, customer journey mapping or a digital design leveraging emerging web trends and new technologies. If this sounds of interest please drop me a note and let's talk about it.
WHAT I DO BEST
MAKING DESIGN HAPPEN
Design Thinking Method
Using a human-centred approach to innovation that draws from the designer's toolkit to integrate the needs of people, the possibilities of technology, and the requirements for business success. Thinking like a designer can transform the way organizations develop products, services, processes, and strategy.
Applying technical and creative skills, agile project management and understanding of web technologies to deliver cutting edge digital solutions that engage and delight end-users. Drawing inspiration from Scandinavian Design that has enlightened me with respect to simplicity and usability of both visual, urban and product design concepts.
Customer Experience & Service Design
Designing a service around customer experience. Applying best practices to the design and prototyping process to deliver an intuitive, simple and enjoyable service. Customer Journey Map is used as the main tool to design a service model, including experience touch points and blueprints; delivering a better service setup. .
Travelling offers opportunity to discover intricacies of the world; its diversity, creativity and heritage. Camera becomes a tool to share the journey with broader audience: to inspire, educate, engage and entertain. When travelling one wants to capture in a tangible sense some of what one sees; scenery, architecture, street life, design, whether it is contemporary or ancient. Photography is a visual love affair with life and the world. Here is a sample of my photography work.
I work at the intersection of design thinking and program management, integrating expertise beyond project management methodology in order to create a design-conducive and innovative environment that enables holistic service and customer experience design.
DesignExperience:While delivering projects for global brands, I have been able to expand my experience, knowledge and cultural acuity, and hone my innovative approach.

TURNING IDEAS INTO DESIGN PROJECTS AND MAKING IT HAPPEN
THINK-DESIGN-MANAGE represents my systematic approach to guide idea creation, problem solving and project execution in delivering business value and customer centric solutions. I work at the intersection of design thinking and project management, integrating expertise beyond traditional project management methodology in order to create a design-conducive and innovative environment. Design is a method of problem solving. It is a state of mind. It is an approach to a problem. Design is so many things, executed in many different ways, but the objective is always the same. Whether it is a blueprint, a clever UX, a communication tool, or a service – design can help solve a visual or a physical problem.
SHARING INSIGHTS & ARTICLES
'Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they did not really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they have had and synthesize new things. And the reason they were able to do that was that they have had more experiences or they have thought more about their experiences than other people.' In the Insights section you can explore more on design thinking, service design and delivered projects.
