Feastly

Feastly

Feastly was a Washington D.C. based startup that focused on any chef or food-related innovators set up a small curated food experience. It allowed people to convert their houses, public location, or any other place into a restaurant for one day.

Food is a happy experience and so I decided to take a very simple, clean, and silly approach to the branding. I believe creating a simple theme can really help design an entire brand around. For this purpose, I created a Happy Chef that contain the excitement and positive feel.

DC Still Delivering, COVID19 Project

Visit Live

DC Still Delivering is a database of all restaurants in the Washington D.C. metro area that are open for business during the COVID19 epidemic. As a food blogger and UX Designer, I wanted to find a way to help my local community. So I decided to approach this as both sides of my passion. The project consisted of two important parts of the user searching for restaurants and data entry. Without both working together the project can no success.

 

The Users

One, from the perspective of the user who lives in, Washington D.C. metro area (D.C., Maryland, and Virginia) who will be searching for a specific local restaurant. It's important to allow users to easily narrow down listings to their local neighborhoods and favorite restaurants.

 

Data Entry

One of the very important

Boris’s ability to handle multiple projects was unlike any I’ve seen before. Apart from being an exceptional designer, he is a great people manager as well. I have seen Boris taking charge of several meetings with multiple stakeholders including product owners, developers, quality assurance and pushing everyone towards a solution but always keeping in mind the end-user concerns.

Calvin Choi

Principle UX Designer, Oracle

It was my pleasure to work in Boris’ UX team. He is a very creative designer, and a good decision maker. Also, he is the gate keeper in our team, and he is good at communicating in between stakeholders and his team members. Making sure our works are delivered on time and fulfilled the requirements successfully. I would highly recommend him as a professional UX team leader.

He is an innovative thinker and does not run out of new ideas. Boris' achievement go beyond the mainly professional. His unique sense of humor, bubbly personality and positive energy makes him an ideal candidate to deal with any kind of business situation.

Boris is highly professional and focused. He quickly understands the needs of the operations teams (users) and provides proactively suggestions that often led to significant improvements / changes in the design. The new proposed design pattern is significantly improved, more ergonomic and provides more efficiency for the user, and greatly improved opportunities to address everyone's needs.
