UI Design

How has Topcoder changed your life?

Topcoder is my starting point in learning the UI/UX world. Topcoder opened many opportunities like having overseas clients, traveling to USA, building relationships with 'world class' skill designers, and earning lots of prize money!

Do you have a favorite Topcoder customer or project? If so, which customer or project?

GE Transportation is challenging and I love it. Every challenge always pushes me to be better about UI/UX.

What is the funniest thing that has happened to you within the Topcoder community?


Tell us about an achievement that you are most proud of.

Being a finalist at TCO16 was really an amazing achievement so far.

Best music album to design to?


Who is your favorite copilot and why (and you can't pick yourself!)?

Fajar is my favorite copilot because not only does he follow up in the forums, he keeps following up with competitors by email.

Do you have a favorite designer/artist or other inspiration?


As a designer, what is your biggest pet peeve?

A client who always ask for a quick result with a lot of silly revisions, not a lot of prize money, and demanding an amazing design.

What are the top 3 applications that you use when you design?

photoshop, illustrator, chrome

If you could design one world - renown item such as the Olympics logo, a new country flag, or redo a massive brand logo such as Coca Cola, what would you want to design and why?

I would like to redesign the Apple logo. Who wouldn't want to redesign it?

We asked the Finalists to use emojis in response to the following questions.
