Started a new job
I started a job where I could do e-commerce projects in a Trezo commerce, a company that supported large regional, national and multinational brands. It was an experience where I could challenge myself a lot, especially in moments of contact with clients, because as an introverted person this is often one of the biggest challenges. I was able to deliver projects from start to finish, assist in new projects with ux methodologies, be part of the QA of deliveries and also provide support on sites that were already implemented. It was an incredible experience for my professional growth, as well as the autonomy I had during the projects, with many afternoon coffee cakes, halloween party, hackathon, black friday and especially for having Frida the dog as a coffee partner.

LOOQ was planned to be a direct-to-consumer eyewear brand in Asia. My role included overseeing web and mobile app design and development. Sadly this project was put on hold due to external factors. A great many lessons were learnt during the early stages of this startup, some of which are:
  • Market research is the absolute first step in any new venture. It doesn't matter how cool you think your idea is.
  • If your expertise does not suffice, hire a freelancer with the skills you need. It will pay off in the long run. 
  • Just because your competitors use a certain set of tools/tech stack, does not necessarily the same will work for you. 
  • Creating a physical product is so cool. Enjoy the process!
