I’m a 28 year-old, full-bearded, globetrotter, humanitarian, entrepreneurial Mexican, that loves to create value in any way possible. And tacos. I love tacos. I’ll buy you some when we meet.
I’m grateful for having the opportunity to work in Product Design, UI, UX, and Front-end development with incredible companies and non-profits, like Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières, The MIT Media Lab, Lufthansa, Allianz, Swiss Airlines, Red Cross, to name a few.
Most designers consider themselves user advocates. While this is good, they often consider the user goals at the top of everything, leaving the business goals on a secondary term. Businesses need money to survive. There’s no point in having a beautiful website with joyful users if they are not converting into sales. A good designer must make sure that the business goals and user goals live in harmony and cooperation. Users are not gods to be worshipped but partners to be working with.
I like to think of myself as a full-stack designer.

This is Tommy, one of my mentees.
For some time now, I’ve been a design mentor at Springboard, an online design school focused on User Experience, where I’ve met incredible and passionate people. This is the story of how I got to know Tommy.
Thanks for reading. Let’s create something that impacts people’s lives positively, together.
I've had the privilege of working with awesome people
“Sadok is one of the best designers I have ever worked with. He went out of his way to understand the user, and designed a product that is easy for users to understand, yet looks beautiful. His eye for design is unique, and he took responsibilities in the project outside of his scope, such as getting the landing page created. There are only a few designers that can create products that users talk about online, and Sadok is one of them. He is brilliant, easy and fun to work with, and I would always work with him again”
Pim de Witte | Technical Project Manager at DWB/MSF
“When building a company, the brand and overall design is what will make it or break it. Sadok knows how to design a trusting image, that can get a clear and actionable message across. His design expertise and mentorship is also reflected in the high quality design of our student-created startups.”
Eddy Zhong | Founder and CEO of Leangap
“Sadok has been a great mentor to me since the beginning of my UX/UI design program. When we reviewed my coursework and designs, he ensured that I saw the greater UX concept as well as details down to the pixels. His mentorship has definitely accelerated my learning process as I transition into finding a new role in the tech industry.”
Thomas Koo | Springboard Mentee
“Sadok is one of the hardest working people I know. He was always prompt at getting back to me and his eye for design is suburb. He is the type of person that will help a friend in need.”
Daniel Greenberg | Founder of Vibrind
