Working in a company means success is a team effort. Saying the contrary would be wrong. And the good thing about working as a team is that every one of us can develop our strengths.
In my case, I like to approach every new feature, interaction, and ultimately visual design, with a clean, minimalistic approach to simplify processes for the user. My experience says that everything could get more complicated quite easily so the cleaner and simpler the starting point is, the better.
I'm also pretty excited about animation as a visual layer, not only in terms of aesthetics but also as a narrative and informative component. I've had the chance to improve that experience at Plex as well, doing from preload and micro animations, to fullscreen intros to empower the brand.
As I was described in a meeting "He's our animation guy"... So I guess I can do birthday parties.
