What Others Are Saying

Alex is the best designer i have ever worked with. He is an excellent combination of Designer and Product Manager with a very deep understanding of what a Platform is thanks to his advanced system thinking skills.

Product Lead, Palantir

Alex was amazing to work with. He is a quick study of complex ideas and systems. He's that rare breed of designer that is not only great at design and product thinking, but also a great developer too. Would absolutely work with him again!

Front End Engineering Manager, Two Sigma IQ

Path 7

I worked with Alexandru to drive high value user experiences deep into algorithm development at Thomson Reuters. His pioneering data visualization team at Thomson Reuters Eikon was a driving influence to the work in corporate R&D.

Research Programs Director, Thomson Reuters

I always found it amazing how easy everything seems to be for him. Not once was I in a situation where I had to add some new elements in one of my products, (which elements wouldn't fit anywhere and would break so many UX flows) and, when asking for his help on the matter, he would say the magic words: "It's obvious, we do this, that and that.

Senior Product Manager, BitDefender

Path 7

Alex was absolutely terrific to work with. Creative and fast, managed projects on time, and delivered high quality work. There isn't much more to say: Alex is a pro in every way, and it shows from day one. Unlike a lot of designers, he welcomes feedback on what he shares and can constructively and quickly drive toward the best outcome.

CEO, TopFunnel

Alexandru has a unique ability to create and deliver innovative ideas resulting in high value commercial solutions. A focused and driven individual who is a pleasure to work with given his commitment to success.

Global Client Director, HP Enterprise

Path 7

It was a rare case when a person from a different industry understood our needs and provided different solutions. Alex had amazing out of box thinking skills.

Senior Well Intervention and Integrity Engineer, BP

I'm very pleased with Bitdefender's new "silent security" motto. It can make things harder for testers like me, but the user experience is priceless

Lead Analyst for Security, PC Mag
