CRAFTING DIGITAL EXPERIENCES FOR HUMANS

Hi there!

I’m Sandra Mileikyte (pronounced /mɪ-leɪ-kiː-té/). That’s a Lithuanian  🇱🇹 surname if you’re wondering where I’m from. I have moved to UK more than a decade ago and creating a new life from scratch in a foreign country has been one of the best adventures in my life.

I am a UX and Product designer and I help businesses build meaningful products and intuitive experiences. I always advocate for simplicity, people centred approach and mindful tech.


 
 
 

Right now I am...

I’m freelancing  and working on some really cool projects with Deutsche Bank at their DWS Group Division

 
 
 

 

In my spare time

 
 

I love chasing that wanderlust feeling and live a healthy, balanced life ✈️🌍🧘🏼‍♀️

 

 

When it comes to work

I have a strong work ethic. I am confident in what I do, I value honesty and I am always motivated to grow 🔝 Moving to another country has also taught me to adjust to changes and now I consider adaptability as one of my superpowers.

I believe that all designers should set some ground rules on how they approach every project. With this belief in mind and with all the experience I had so far, I’ve established my Design Principles which illustrate how I approach obstacles in every project  

 
 
 

User is king

It’s all about the user, their needs, behaviours, likes and dislikes. Using research methods I’m confident in uncovering key insights and translating them into exceptional experiences.

 

Strive for simplicity

Whatever I am creating, I strive for simplicity. Good experience won't make the user think. I like to keep things simple and easy to follow.

 
 
 

Devil is in the (tiny) details

Little details, no matter how subtle they are, bring a great joy when using a product. Thought through micro-interactions add a lot of value to any product.

 

Experiment. Fail. Learn. Repeat.

No matter what I'm working on, I always try things out. I'm not afraid to fail, as failure is just a lesson. It takes me on the right path to success.

 
 

And the process?

I use human centred design process to create meaningful user experiences
