About me

Hi, my name is Alin Meceanu.
I enjoy making better experiences for people. I've been doing this for the past 9 years and I love it.

I joined mytaxi in 2015 to reshape the way mobility works. Currently I am based in Hamburg, leading the design teams.

How do I work?

Each designer has it's preferences when it comes to the perfect design work flow. This is what I found to be working the best for myself:

  1. Creating mood boards for inspiration can be done easily with Dropmark while for documenting the research and presenting the results I would recommend Dropbox Paper.

  2. For designing and wireframing there is no better tool then Sketch (if you have a mac, otherwise Figma)

  3. Although there a lot of tools out there for prototyping, what I found to work best is InVision - if you don't have the time for a high fidelity prototype, and Framer or Principle when you want to get the best experience for user testing.

  4. One of the latest addition to the tool chain is Abstract, which helps designers keep track of changes and have a version controlled workflow (similar to Git)

  5. Making sure the developers get all the right assets -> Zeplin

  6. And last but not least, Trello - for managing and planning design stories.


When I am not designing or spending time with my family, I travel around the globe and capture all the moments through my Nikon Fujifilm camera.
