UX - Commercial Products
When it comes to designing products for every day needs, the true power of the UX designer is not an earlier knowledge of the field of interest, but the ability to connect to people, understand their needs and learn fast.
My preference is usually long term projects, in which I have the ability to take part in every step until seeing the results, but I thrill in the face of quick win challenges to pick those low hanging fruits.
Yuval is one of the most focused, experienced, self-energized and strategically thinking professionals I've came across. Yuval is highly experienced with both product, tech, marketing and UI/UX experience and I highly recommend Yuval as for any product management, or all kind of Business consulting."
