Simon Yu

"Roman has a command of design and user experience customization that I have never seen before. Roman's designs were beautiful, sleek, elegant, yet simple. Roman understood our customers very well, and as such was able to help customize user flows that directly enhanced our customer's ability to navigate and use our app. Roman redesigned all of Storm's icons, images, and app layout. With his expertise, we were able to completely transform the way users interacted with the Storm Play app. Roman was also able to work under very tight deadlines and produce items within a moment's notice when needed."

"I had the pleasure of working with Roman through the first years of Mixer, a games live-streaming service at Microsoft. Roman was one of the first designers we hired and he was responsible for designing Mixer Create, our mobile broadcasting application. He is talented, dedicated, and carries himself with a professionalism that is rare to find. His speed is complemented by a his breadth of experience designing across devices. I cannot recommend him enough."
James Liu
Principal Design Manager
Mixer (Xbox, Microsoft)
"I've had the good fortune of having Roman on my team for about a year and a half, and can say without reservation that Roman is one of the best designers I've worked with. Regardless of the stage of the project, he reliably took a well-practiced and detailed eye to the design of each feature, and he always saw his projects through to successful release with all of the necessary iterations along the way. From among Roman's skills, I've come to appreciate Roman's eye for style most. When we rebranded, his work was central to establishing the new brand look (which he created) across our product in a way that was both elegant and pragmatic to build. Roman possesses a set of skills that is hard to find, and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with him."
Andrew Gu
VP of Product
Thunder, Inc.
"Roman is a creative genius. He managed to rebrand our whole company and redo our digital presence in a very short, compressed amount of time. His attention to detail also ensured no mistakes were introduced in this accelerated timeline for rebrand. His focus didn't end with his deliverable; instead, he'd continue to monitor the downstream work of others who translated his assets and designs into code to ensure nothing was missing or even off by a little. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Roman and am very proud of the work we did together."
Victor Wong
Thunder, Inc.
"Roman and I worked together in both of our last positions at Glympse, and he was a great asset to our team in terms of improving the usability of the products across our portfolio. Specifically, he was a huge help in designing improved experiences for the consumer apps I was responsible for, based on requirements I provided and his wealth of experience in the industry."
Christina S. Green
Product Manager
Glympse, Inc.
"One of the best designers that I've personally worked with. His pixel-perfect designs were a key reason that we could pre-sell our "product" before we had coded anything. Roman has continuously exhibited high level of independence, creativity, and collaboration. He joined the team and delivered at rapid pace right off the bat. I worked with Roman very closely and was always impressed by different angles through which he can view a problem. Roman is a guy who can deliver high quality output even under stressful situations. Can't recommend him enough and would love to work with him on any project."
