design and success.Marco has had a difficult role of not only interface design, but often also being responsible for the UX, UI, interaction and copy of our product.

Marco has an exceptional ability to want to do the right thing, pushing for the best experience for users, whilst balancing this with a great understanding of the business needs and minimum requirements needed to deliver value.

A key attribute of Marco’s is his desire for knowledge and understanding for context, often joining meetings and encouraging collaboration so that he can ensure he has the background knowledge of the product, processes and users in order to ensure the system is built with the best user experience. This has helped Marco to gain a lot of knowledge whilst also helping our shaping team to learn a lot about UI and UX.

Marco delivers with great quality and at an exceptional pace under a lot of pressure, yet his attitude has never once wavered. Not only are his designs and grasp of user interaction fantastic, what Marco also brings is his fantastic personal skills and personality. He is also happy to help, and has become a huge part of the teams fantastic morale and culture. As much as his skills will be missed, Marco as a person will be missed even more.

Thank you for everything and good luck with what comes next.

He will design UIs, prototype them in tools and code, test them, liaise with developers stakeholders and PO, get feedback from biz, devs and users, make everyone happy and still do a pristine job without sacrificing quality. I have no clue how he manages that! Really top person and top designer!
