„Working with Alex was a real pleasure. He is one of the most determined colleagues I had the chance of working with in my professional life so far. Alex is carefully understanding the user, his needs, the business environment and constraints before making and challenging decisions regarding UX and UI. His deep knowledge of the industry made him a reliable partner. I never experienced any hesitation or doubts – getting his hands dirty in times of close deadlines and conflict. He is surely missed and I’m confident it won’t be the last time we got our hands dirty together.“
