Adis Hasanić

UI/UX Designer




Background
I have more than 10 years of experience in UI/UX design, website design and graphic design, mostly as a product designer at startups, backers of which include YC, Sequoia and A16Z. Born and raised in Bosnia and Herzegovina, I started making abstract art and website designs in Photoshop when I was 12, got hired by a startup as a UI/UX designer when I was 15, and focused on UI/UX design since, mostly remotely, with a year on-site in San Francisco and Tallinn. Recently, I completed a filmmaking course in Paris, and a French language course in Nice, so I know a little bit of French, but not much, not really fluent.



Process
I design app interfaces (user flows, visual UI and design system) and websites to create faster, easier and more comfortable ways to achieve user's goals, from the landing page to core problems and features. Preferably in Figma or Sketch, I try to move fast in creating, reviewing and iterating high-fidelity mockups, aiming for clarity and perfection via progressive improvements, while keeping an archive of all designs and iterations and presenting each with an explanation of design decisions.



Recommendations
Words of past clients, employers and managers who hired me and worked with me on UI/UX design, website design and graphic design projects.


Adam Williams, CEO at Magicloops, a startup building an app which makes it easy for anyone to create AI automations:

"As an early-stage startup, we don't have the capacity needs for a full-time designer and needed help on project basis. Adis was a great fit for our needs, and helped us redesign the landing page for Magic Loops. He was quick, efficient, and a good communicator. We iterated on the design a few times, and he was very responsive. Everything was delivered with Figma, which was our preferred design software. Overall we've enjoyed working with Adis, and the improved home page has helped bolster our brand and external image."


Tristan Agaësse, CTO at Leveros, a startup building an app which makes it easy for anyone to lend and borrow crypto:

"As the CTO of Leveros, I had the opportunity to bring Adis on board for the design of our MVP. His capacity to swiftly and accurately decode our product needs was a game changer. He transformed brief explanations into user-centric designs that didn't just look good but truly resonated with our target audience. Adis's proactive communication ensured that our projects progressed seamlessly, and his adaptability was a perfect fit for our fast-paced startup environment. For anyone seeking a UX designer who is both exceptionally skilled and easy to collaborate with, I wholeheartedly recommend Adis."


Luke Zapart, CEO at Canvas, a startup backed by Sequoia building an app which makes it easy to create dashboards:

"Adis acted as a true founding designer on our team. He needs very little direction, and I have honestly never met anyone this proactive, productive, and pragmatic at the same time. He has a real knack for UX design, and seeing user problems before they occur.

He's basically the startup CEO's dream. He redesigned the v2 of our app from the ground up, knowing exactly what to redo, as if he was an expert in our domain (data analytics). We received raving reviews of the redesign from both existing and new users, and I believe it was instrumental in us getting #1 on Product Hunt."


Indraneel Mukherjee, CEO at LiftIgniter, a startup backed by YCombinator building an API for content recommendations:

"Adis is an excellent communicator, creates great designs fast, and is really great to work with. He quickly understood our rather complex requirements, did a bunch of quick iterations producing great work, was very flexible and patient as we came up with new requests, and also helped shape the overall product we were building."


Blake Puryear, product lead at Engine, a startup building an app which makes it easy to create eCommerce stores:

"From day one, Adis was able to massively contribute to the UX of our platform. He thoughtfully approaches his design decisions and takes the time to understand the individual problems of each user flow. He is always quick to respond and has created a visual design for our product that we are extremely happy with!"


Kelsey Klein, project manager at Meitu, a startup building a mobile app for photo editing:

"Adis took direction well, and was comfortable iterating on a project through completion to create exactly what we were looking for."


Tiffany Kuo, CEO at MultiplyLabs, a startup providing pills with daily required health and energy supplements:

"Adis is easy to work with and fast. After sharing who our target customers are, a sketch of our landing page, and our copy, he was able to make suggestions to our original thinking and create a beautiful design in just three days."
