I had a home in Africa...

I am Hope Ndlovu, born to the Tsonga African tribe, in the Ndlovu Elephant clan. I am a UX and UI Designer raised in Johannesburg, South Africa. For the last 13 years, I’ve called Los Angeles my home. I am a lover of coffee, minimalism, art deco, mid-century modern design and Bauhaus. What drives me is my curiosity of humans and passion for translating concepts into elegant, intuitive, usable design.

When I take a break from the computer, you can find me at live music events, local hiking, exploring California's national parks and checking out new restaurants in sunny Los Angeles.

My primary language is English but I also speak Zulu and Sotho. After being an Angelino for so long, I've come to love a good burger but I miss my mom's native paap, vors and chakalaka

Expertise

Planning and creating concepts that are focused on the user is one of my major skills.

I’m a proud “broken-comb shaped” designer. I offer UX Design, UI Design, Product Design, Interaction Design, Conceptualizing, Wireframing, Prototyping, & Responsive Design.

Process

My process has evolved into one that starts with discovery and ends with development, relying heavily on iterative design. 

I believe that the best work is done without rushing and through collaboration. Good design should last long and bring value to every stakeholder.
