Poyi has been in the game for a long time and had tons of solutions for my design problems. He guided me through some color theory & options, and gave me at least 6 practical suggestions on user flow and experience. Sometimes when people get fixated on their subjective opinion on design, it is hard to listen to everyone. Poyi kept pure, powerful, and did me solid support. High five Poyi.

I booked a call with Poyi to get another designer's feedback on a new service that we're building (for designers). I walked away with an entire A4 piece of paper jam-packed with valuable notes. Notes that no doubt will be instrumental when it comes time for round 2 of revisions. Thanks Poyi!

Poyi is fantastic! I was working on UI design for a project and he helped me figure out a good workflow for my needs (I was struggling with implementing design system for consistency) and more importantly because he's a growth-oriented designer, his notes around UX patterns were also helpful - highly recommend his help!

Poyi was very diligent in his approach to our case. We are managing a remote team of designers and developers (permanent) and managing a design process is not quite the same as in person under the same roof. He was intrigued and keen on helping resolve any issues and followed up with a team member to further help our cause.

Poyi blew my mind. He found and suggested to fix a few "UX must-not"s and bugs right away. Thank you very much Poyi for your time and willingness to help!

*Very* patient and knowledgeable. Got a lot of great takeaways / action items from a design perspective for a CRO teardown for a SaaS home page.

Great call with Poyi. Pointed out a lot of things in UX that I should probably address ASAP.
