Hello! Iโ€™m Edoardo Mercati, a UX/UI Designer from Italy living in Amsterdam.

I think thereโ€™s enough complexity in our world - the products we use shouldn't be. I strongly believe in the power of simplicity to craft clear and enjoyable user experiences.

Feel free to say hello! ๐Ÿ‘‹

Process

Understand. I take time to obeserve my users, take notes and collect data to indentify problems, constraint and requirements.

Sketch and prototype. Once the problem is framed, together with scope and context - I begin to sketch, wireframe and quickly prototype a possible set of solutions.

Test and iterate. I welcome users to interact with different versions of my product observing how they performs. This exciting phase is a loop, in which their feedback generates new discoveries and alternative versions until the experience feels right.

Deliver. Eventually I refine my design to its most polished version, exporting all the assets and specs and working closely with developers to make sure everything integrates seamlessly.

Methodology

Following the great principles of atomic design, during the design process I gradually build a system of components made of text styles, colors, icons, buttons, that expands and evevolves through the lifetime of the project.

In this way I keep the design consistent through all the devices, allowing my team mates to access the most updated style and assets in any moment.

Work Samples

bunq App UX, UI, A/B Testing

Banking Dashboard Responsive Design

NovaNet App Redesign

Toolset

I always start with my old good paper notebook to draft ideas and take notes. Then I shift to the digital realm to shape the final designs. Here I use software like Sketch, Flinto, Framer, Principle, Photoshop and Illustrator, costantly mirroring to my mobile devices to have a real-life feel.

In my 'nerdy' time I find myself coding in HTML, CSS and basic JavaScript. Lately Iโ€™m digging into Swift and iOS development.
