Work Experience

2023 — Now

Over the past decade, we've witnessed the limitations of traditional design methods. They're slow, inefficient, and fail to harness the power of technology.

At Shortcut, we're not just about crafting aesthetically pleasing designs; we're about accelerating product launches, amplifying fundraising efforts, and empowering you to outpace your competitors.

Our team of seasoned designers, equipped with cutting-edge tools, is ready to transform your ideas into reality.

2015 — 2020
Mexico

When 23 Design started in 2015, we set out to push design and ourselves forward.

Over the years we built an exceptional team around this mission. It was not easy, but it was rewarding. We promoted the design in the region, worked with amazing clients - from Palo Alto to Tel Aviv - and touched the lives of millions of people through the 200+ brands, products and services that we launched together. That’s something we’ll always be proud of.

Omar worked on almost 50 different projects as a user interface designer at 23 Design.

Projects

2019

Infosel Hub is a new platform made by the most older competition of Bloomberg in Mexico.

We design and launch from cero a new platform to compete with new trading platforms around the world.

2018

We worked with Eiya! (logistics provider for SMBs) to improve the tracking, shipping and picking system visualization, to enhance customer satisfaction.

We redesigned the admin platform for e-commerce, built a service map through which we identified the main pain-points (non-responsive design, fails in the invoicing system, order status not updated, and lack of visibility of coverage areas).

2017

We helped Swap to understand the primary needs of consumers when making bank transfers by breaking down assumptions and creating a natural adoption product instead.

The result was Swap, an app that allows making bank transfers, even from WhatsApp, any time and any day, regardless of the bank.

The user that receives the transfer only needs to put the digits of the sender’s card on the screen displayed on the link or through a QR code at ATMs in the Bancomer network.

2016

We helped ConCrédito, a microcredit company to redesign their app for Android by deeply understanding their users: women. We realized most of them had long nails and found difficult to press buttons accurately.

By designing bigger buttons and simplifying the app, the results impacted the users positively. We got great reviews and happier users providing them a better experience to manage their businesses.

2015

Bridgefy is a free messaging app that works without the Internet. Perfect for natural disasters, large events, and at school. 💬

We redesign their apps for Android and iOS and prepare them for coming features they added to their apps.

"I always thought that you always needed to manage people all the time to improve. Some designers just want to improve their skills. They want to be better at illustration or managing colors. And that's good too. If that's the way, you want to go at that time of your life."
