I don't get emotional, even if someone has made a big mistake or everything is going terribly wrong. I focus not on the problem, but on finding a solution. I try to explain to the person/team why a solution is better/worse and how things should or should not be done.
If the product or context allows, I enjoy finding unconventional and, as far as possible, elegant solutions.
I am meticulous about the spacing, copy, spelling errors, visual hierarchy, typography, button sizes, design consistency, and so on. But I don't go overboard with it. I try not to get bogged down when it's unnecessary.
When designing, I consider where and how a particular interface element or solution will be located and adapted on different devices (Desktop/Laptop/Mobile) and platforms (Web/iOS/Android).
Cross-platform adaptive thinking
I don't try to do everything on my own. I understand that a good product is always the result of coordinated work by everyone involved, not just in development.
I think through all possible scenarios and the behavior of interface elements in different contexts and environments. I spend a lot of time on wording on each screen and think through every label on every button.
When diving into a task or designing an interface, I always look at possible solutions from different angles. I can switch to different research, read additional materials, or communicate with other team members if I am unsure about something or don't know something.
I explore and try to understand the pain points and emotions of users. I look for ways to help them.
Within the project, I'm also interested in the processes of business, marketing, development, sales, and other things that could help me delve into the product context and look more broadly at possible solutions or the implementation of new features. I look at how other products are structured, and I surf the internet if the task is complex and doesn't have a single correct solution.
