Your design partners

Marina Rizo

Marina Rizo is originally from Barcelona. She left her sunny city behind to look for some rainy adventures in Belgium. Her skills combine ​design and audiovisual, all mixed up with a deep passion for ​interactivity and user experience. When not ​reading comic books or thinking about dogs, you can find her watching (too many) TV series.

Johan Ronsse

Johan Ronsse is a self-taught user interface designer with over ten years of design experience. He is obsessed with finding the balance between aesthetics and usability. He occasionally likes to go for a 5km run—if he has no movies left to watch.

Xavier Bertels is a designer and managing partner at Mono, where he helps companies deliver simple, useful & beautiful digital products. He lives and works in the Digital Haven of Belgium: the beautiful city of Ghent. Design, tea or martial arts are good conversation starters.

Principles

What we value in design

  1. Human

    Many things in this world can be improved. Mindlessly replacing every piece of paper with a screen is not the answer. The human experience should be front and center. Sometimes the best UI is no UI.

  2. Enabling

    Computers give us superpowers and are enablers to do great things. We see computers as tools. When we design apps we love to focus on speed and productivity.

  3. Contextual

    User interfaces live within an ecosystem of platforms that have their own set of conventions. When designing for any operating system, one should fully consider the platform and its guidelines.

  4. Simple

    Everything should be as simple as possible, but not simpler.

  5. Beautifully crafted

    Great design is the result of thousands of micro-decisions. Through our experience, we handcraft every detail of your product to perfection.
