“I worked closely together with Nadia as an external UX team for a Large multinational. It was a joy, both personally and professionally. Nadia is always eager to get the best result for the end customer, but also to find the workflow that delivers most value. And, not unimportant, no day went by without a good laugh. I can fully recommend her as a talented UX designer who’s got the chops and knows her stuff.”

Senior UX Designer, Direct manager (2016)



“I had the pleasure to work directly with Nadia during my time at Take Eat Easy. Being extremely professional in all different aspects of her work, Nadia is very reliable, passionate about UX and always thrives to deliver the best user experience for the customer. I have learnt a lot from this especially talented coworker and any company hiring her with be extremely lucky to have her onboard. Nadia is also a very sociable person and who is not afraid to defend her beliefs and ideas. I wish her all the luck for her next adventure.”

Senior UI/UX Designer (2016)



“Nadia is a really smart UX designer with a great sense of what works and what doesn't. She did an awesome job collaborating very closely with both iOS and Android developers on our team, and without her reactivity and patience, we would never had gotten both of our apps off the ground in such a short timeframe. Add to that the fact that she's very nice to hang around and work with, and you've got your perfect designer team mate. I really enjoyed working with her and I really hope we'll have other opportunities to work together.”

VP of Engineering (2016)



“I worked with Nadia for close to two years. In those two years, I’ve seen her not only excel at tackling UX problems –but also show exceptional leading and managerial skills in her role. That's one of the things that's so remarkable about Nadia. She demonstrates not only mastery for design, but also the ability to learn and take on new projects that are both difficult and critical. This rare mix of creativity and pragmatism sets Nadia apart, and explains why it's an indispensable member of any team. While Nadia's working skills will impress you, it's her warm and zestful character that makes everyone love working with her.”
