Work Process

As a human being, I'm work in progress.

I have done several projects from the beginning to the phase of launching to the production. Each phase causes good and bad times, positive attitude and frustration. You can prevent many scenarios from past experience but not all of them. Obstacles are going to be on the path of bringing ideas from the paper to reality.

1. Idea
2. Sketch
3. Design/Architecture
4. Development
5. Testing
6. Launch

And more important thing is the celebration of each success!
