Andrew is an expert in product strategy and design and has been names as one of Arizona Republic’s 35 under 35. Andrew made his first dollar as a child dog sitting and baby sitting.
Andrew started his journey growing up doing t-shirt design and then freelance graphic design. He went to college for design and afterwards lived in a shared apartment and built his network – he still knows some of the people today. User10 has a focus on UI and UX design and strategy for Saas companies; he helps them build the 2.0 version of their products. Good design can’t make a bad product great but it can make a good product great. Design is the process and the most important thing is communication – a lot of hard work from a lot of people goes into the finished product.
To make a good product we need to solve the problems from the customers which means asking the right questions and listening to the answers. A good product will meet expectations but a great one will exceed them and surprise you.
