Where are you from and/or where are you based as a UX/UI Designer?

I am currently in Jakarta the capital city of Indonesia. This is Selamat Datang monument located in the heart of my city, selamat datang means welcome in Bahasa Indonesia ๐Ÿ‘‹


What inspired you to pursue UX/UI design?

So, my UX/UI design journey starts way back a decade ago. I built my first website when I was 11. The website is not really fancy & advanced, it was pretty much a blog for sharing my personal stories, but that blog sparks something inside of me which at that time I didn't know that it was called a UX/UI design.

Fast forward to 2021, I rediscovered my old interest in designing a website and want to pursue a career in this field again!

What does a typical day look like for you?

I started working at around 9 am with a latte on my desk. I feel like I canโ€™t really function if I didn't start my day with a coffee haha.

I usually open Slack & Trello to check if there are any updates on my current task and continue with a daily standup to track progress with my team.

Then, I usually go โ€œin the zoneโ€ for about 2 hours, fully immersing myself in the day-to-day work of my job, and stop at around 12 to take a lunch break.

For the second part of my day, you just hit the reset button. Start at around 1 with a latte on my desk and go โ€œin the zoneโ€ until the end of the day.

After work, I usually try to set aside 1 to 2 hours to learn any material related to UX/UI design.

What challenges do you face as a UX/UI Designer?

The theory & fundamentals. Learn the building blocks of UX/UI design. This is one of the hardest lessons for me because I tend to jump right away on Figma and start designing but then I hit a point where my skills are plateauing. It was when I started to learn the theory & fundamentals then my skills were improving, and it was significantly improved. I feel like I am leveling up as a designer after I learn the theory & fundamentals hahaha

PS: also master auto-layout & components, it will help you a lot!

What work or project are you most proud of?

My personal website!

For me building my current personal website was a huge accomplishment because this is what gets me back to UX/UI design last year. Suffice to say that I am really proud of everything about my personal website, from the typography, layout, to the color itself. Seeing my improvement over my first blog 10 years ago, the difference is day and night. ๐Ÿ˜‚

What is your current workspace setup?

I primarily use PC to work and this is the setup!

What are your go-to or "must have" apps?

I personally prefer to use web-based apps so I donโ€™t have to download so many things on my device, but here are some of my go-to apps that I download

What product (digital or physical) recently blew your socks off?

Notion! Ah, where do I even begin with Notion ๐Ÿคฉ

For me, Notion is what google docs, spreadsheets, and Trello combine. I could literally do anything that I want with Notion, like taking notes and also tracking progress using the Kanban board. Sometimes, Notion can be too much for me but I like to keep my notion pages simple so I can focus on what matters.


What tunes do you listen to while designing/working?

I usually keep my music really low while designing because the last time I blast music loudly during work I ended up doing a karaoke session ๐Ÿ˜‚

This is my favorite playlist for study and work, love the smooth alto sound.

Share your best three suggestions for budding designers!

  1. Learn the theory and fundamentals. I know, it's boring, but you have to if you want to level up as a designer
  2. Make mistake. The only way to sharpen your craftsmanship is through consistent trial and error, you'll learn whatโ€™s working and what not after your 100th mistake~
  3. have fun! Take the pressure off of your shoulder and keep having fun.



Thanks for reading my story!
