FARES FARHAN Human Interface Designer
Hi, I’m Fares, a designer living in Singapore Bandung, Indonesia. I love designing things that are joy to use and aesthetically pleasing. I was graduated with a major in Software Engineering and minor in Human Computer Interaction. When I’m not designing, I spend time playing drums and reading. I also like to cook and help friends tuning their car.

I'm now working at DBS Bank Ltd, Singapore as Principal Designer in Consumer Banking Group.

Over the course of almost a decade and half, I have worked with multiple disciplines as well as other related design disciplines including interaction design, user interface design and user experience design. I have challenged my self with various projects, solving design-related problems for startups and big companies.
Previously, I was UI designer in Dropbox Gateway team, designing their internal tools where my duties were defining visual design as well as interaction design, including creation of wireframes and hi-fidelity UI mockups.

I was also honored to lead the redesign process of Xamarin Studio IDE user interface.
