I'm Mlu

A User Interface Designer, a Jazz enthusiast & World Class Babysitter

I am comfortable with a broad range of design software and online tools and I have a good understanding of design principles as they relate to a people-first approach.


A brief narrative of my past work experience to this point, I'm enjoying growth in my career and I'm happy to be where I am

  • March 2015 - June 2017

    Afrihost -Tech Support

    My duties ranged from responding to a broad range of clients queries via mail and telephonically, assisting with troubleshooting and resolving client website errors. As my role grew, not only did I pick up a greater level of people management skills and insights, but I grew my PHP and JavaScript knowledgebase. A core focus while working on client websites was dedicated to UI design and interactivity, largely on WordPress.

  • February 2018 - November 2018

    UI Designer - Skye Lab Technologies

    My primary role involved UI & Web Design with a strong quality assurance component. I maintained all brand guidelines for Sky-Lab Technologies and designed/ built websites for their clients. During my tenure, I dedicated my time to the strategic UX decisions to formalize the final UI designs. Designs were responsive in nature requiring testing for mobile and tablet.
  • December 2018 - September 2019

    UI Designer - Transaction Capital Recoveries

    I currently maintain a client-interfacing role which allows a greater level of strategic decision making. In addition to designing and maintaining responsive client websites, I have again upskilled to now manage several channels and mediums (Email, Magazine, Facebook and Instagram). In each case, I take care of the design, determine the placement and inner workings of the ads or craft the UI experience and content. This has given me a better understanding of the client-centred approach through an omnichannel perspective and certainly influences my UI / UX decision making ability.
