Firstly, welcome @ale. Thanks for being the first brave soul to start the thread get the conversation rolling. It's very much appreciated.
I'm Aqeel, twitter/keybase/git @qnou currently enthralled by the product and design challenges being faced by the eco-system. My past design experience range in everything from UX/UI to Brand Strategy including everything in between. For most of the past year I have been fully decentralized and focused on Crypto projects trying to learn as much as I can. Ranging from Merry Merkle, Interactive Coin Offering, ENS, Truebit, Blossom and a few additional side projects. If you wish to see some work feel free to DM me.
Designing for Crypto is difficult because creating intuitive and useful products requires balancing both the complexities of entirely new design paradigms with the uniquely enabled utility enabled by crypto economics. I am particularly excited by the opportunity to do systematic inquiry and analysis to design based on actual first principles without having to rely on the existing patterns of Web 2.0.
Look forward to collaborating and creating some magic with all of you!
