About Phillip Mudavanhu

I help small to medium companies and individuals create and develop products that adds value and improve people’s lives. As a creative person , I have worked for the past 10 years, helping companies of all sizes and industries meet their brand vision and yet still empathizing with the end users or clients.

I believe in the power of collaboration and environments that encourages free and open expression of ideas. I enjoy working alongside creative thinkers who share your interests, while turning big ideas into reality for customers or users. Being a curious person, l am always looking for new solutions, new trends and training, that helps me to grow, and to balance my work and personal life.

It is important for me, to be working with talented colleagues, clients or companies that share the enthusiasm and passion for user experience design, curiosity and empathy for the end user.

The Challenges of creating business applications that are as easy to use, as consumer grade websites and as rich in functionality as the customers need them to be to meet their end user needs, is one of the areas that bring purpose and fulfillment into my work life.

For the past 4 years, l have been doing my Bachelors Degree in Computer Science and Media (Medieninformatik) at the Bauhaus University in Weimar Thueringen in Germany. My interest has been in Human Computer Interaction and Software Engineering, as this is part of my studies. My background in advertising and branding has helped me to have deeper insights on problem solving using User Experience Design or User Centered Design. Understanding the User Profile/ Use Cases for products is almost the same as building Customer Profiles in Advertising and Marketing. Creating an effective 360 user experience, for most of my clients and their products has been and remains one of my goals.
