About Me

MFarrag at Al-Azhar Park 2010 Cairo, Egypt

I'm a UX Designer

My name's Mahmoud Farrag I’m living in Cairo, Egypt, where I graduated as Bachelor of Fine Arts, Graphic Design from Fine Arts University. Since then I have enjoyed working in web design and print.

I pride myself on being an easy designer to work with. I'm fanatical about communication with my clients because I know how it feels to be kept out of the loop. I'm always easily accessible and go the extra mile to exceed your expectations.

I currently work freelance designing websites and print. I'm always on the lookout for projects small or large, so please contact me if you need my services.

I like creating unique clean sites that are easy to understand and navigate. All my works comply with web standards, please check out my portfolio!

What i love to do
 
  • Designing
    Designing

    I design functional, creative, details and usability oriented websites as well as web applications by exposing the simplicity and the latest web standards as the main principles and print services, Logo, cards, brochures, flyer, and more.

    During more than 11 years in the web and print industry I have worked with many different people on various projects and as a result I gained some unique and strong experience in the Web and print Design field.

  • Prototyping
    Prototyping

    Prototyping is key to any successful design. Paper prototyping is usually the first step, Paper prototyping is a key component of the user-centered design (UCD) process and is a popular method among me.

    After that digitize each screen by photographing or scanning, organize all the screen images into the correct order for the scenario, explain to the user how to navigate through the scenario.

  • Solving Problems
    Solving Problems

    Design is, and always will be, about problem-solving, By studying people and how they approach and solve problems, you’ll see a distinct pattern emerge and some common steps.

    Identify or understand the problem.
    Devise a plan to rectify it.
    Implement my solution.
    Review whether it was successful.

  • Inspiring
    Inspiring

    Whenever anyone asks how to get inspired, I always point to people themselves. Watch people as they interact with the things around them and solve problems.

    One source of real inspiration is National Geographic. and seeing how people all around the world solve problems in their lives, on both big and small levels, never fails to inspire me.

  • Drawing
    Drawing

    I have loved to draw ever since I can remember with pencil drawing, pastel, and oil paintings from early 1998 to the present.

    Drawing isn't optional for me as a designer, it's essential. I can't go straight to digital at the start of a project, Sketching kick-starts my creativity and allows me to get ideas out on paper and is the fastest way to brainstorm.

  • Hobbies
    Hobbies

    Almost everybody has some kind of hobby. My hobbies are listening to music and watching television and reading.

    Another one of my many hobbies is playing sports and chess and walking, running, and painting.

    I think that my hobbies are very useful. They widen my knowledge, relax my mind, and make me feel better about myself.
