You deserve great design solutions for your business

There are many product designers that can offer visual design services for your next project. What you don’t need is person to push pixels. Your business needs solution focused strategy that can be translated into clean and clever design experiences.

“Love the knowledge base and the detail Duke provides.”

My Story

Anticio (known as Duke the Designer) is a product designer from Chicago, IL who loves creating clever and intuitive experiences for analog and digital products. A serial entrepreneur with a knack for translating simple ideas into products or business opportunities, his ingenuity sets him apart from those who simply design for screens. An award winning mechanical engineer with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering who transitioned to app design, he has been able to successfully bridge the gap between software applications and the products that require them. He is an active member of several design communities like DesignX Community, Consumer Product Lead for WDI Studios, Product Design Strategist for GoHealth, Lead Content Director for Eighth Hour Media; while on the constant pursuit of self-improvement. He reads extensively and shares design knowledge and recommendations on books. Duke has an affinity for helping students and underserved youth learn mobile design by moonlighting as a workshop leader for high school after school programs.

When Duke is not helping others design a life with color, you may find him at any sushi restaurant, live music venue or capturing content in a random location with his son. Feel free to say

A simple process, goes a long way.

Informative Research

The right research can help inform the problem, people and the pain points they experience when trying to use your website or application. From user personas, moderated interviews to behavioral insights – research is critical to tackling the right problem in product design.

Exploratory Ideas

Even the most complex problems can be broken down into simple steps or ideas and that is what I enjoy. Taking a collaborative approach with ideating, sketching and prototyping various solutions solve consumer pain points in the product design process.

Intuitive Design

Digital product design that is not complicated or difficult to use is what drives sales, engagement and overall product success. Minimal yet informed interface design is what I strive to provide for every project.

Transformative Design

Changes Businesses

There are industries that overlook the power of design and its importance on reflecting the brand, market positioning and overall customer experience of an organization. It is with this basis, why there is such a need to utilize rich UX/UI design within any organization that has frequent customer touch points.

Climattude: Weather App

With mental health being a focal point of our lives, I’ve been curious to understand how weather plays a role in that. In light of this, I decided to build and app that allows users to select their mood based on the weather and play tunes on behalf of it. Feel free to check it out by downloading the app today.
