I hired Kocha to lead the design of Finder’s mobile app. Kocha’s contributions have been instrumental. He intuitively mixes user research insights with product ideas, then shapes it into an elegant user experience. Most importantly, Kocha is so much fun to work with. An inclusive team player at heart, he brings such humility and openness to his way of working that everyone can’t wait to work with him. I’ve loved every minute working with Kocha.

We were fortunate to have Kocha join us at a critical point of a crucial project. He hit the ground running and delivered designs which were thoroughly thought out and ironed out complex user journeys. His understanding of technical implementation also helped us tremendously and was apparent in his designs. This allowed us to complete the project on a tight deadline, without compromising on aesthetics.
I will forever be grateful for the impact Kocha had on me and my development team; professionally through through the time working together and also personally as friends outside of work.

Kocha is one of those rare breed of designer. Some designers get very wrapped up in what others are doing or what they are comfortable with but he approaches every feature with a fresh UX perspective and an unbiased lens. Kocha's visual skills are very refined and everything he designs has time and maximum effort put in which our developers loved!
On a personal level, managing Kocha was a pleasure, his positive attitude to life and work always brought smiles to the team. I would highly recommend Kocha.
— Andrew McKay, Head of Design at Insight Timer
Kocha’s designs are purposeful, practical and very user friendly. It is user friendly not only to the end users, but also the developer building it out. I had a lot of fun building out Kocha’s design because he resolved every decision that needs design thinking, eliminating the need of me going back and forth during design handovers. I find it a joy to be working with Kocha’s designs.
Outside work, Kocha is super chill, easy to get along. We had good time chatting about philosophy, approach to design, and craftsmanship. Chemistry in a relationship is hard to describe using words, but you get a taste of it when you work with Kocha.
— John Kueh, Software Engineering Manager at Insight Timer
Kocha is truly one of the most talented and genuine designers I have ever come across.
The project Kocha was engaged to undertake was exceptionally challenging, required meticulous focus and dedication as the scope continued to expand and timelines changed unpredictably as the product unfolded.
Kocha always went above and beyond to meet our finish dates & his quality was second to none. I would highly recommend using Kocha for any digital design work you require as his ability to turn a vision into a product is unrivalled.
Above all - Kocha is a genuinely good person that will always put your needs and interests as his first priority.

Kocha is the rare breed of designer who combines (in no particular order) a deep empathy for the end user, an intimate understanding of design principles, especially around UI & mobile, a meticulous and solid work ethic and an all round friendly demeanour.
We (at uno) have engaged him on two projects and found his work to be of high quality and his communication excellent throughout. Like all great creative people he thrives when given plenty of context, latitude and creative space. Thanks for everything Kocha

I highly recommend working with Kocha and look forward to working with him again in the future.
— Caleb Gibbins, CEO & Founder at Cache
I was lucky enough to work with Kocha on a recent project with Uno Home Loans. We had tight deadlines and a rather ambitious end-to-end design review of an existing mobile app.
And yet, Kocha was able to over deliver and delight us with his final solution.Along with his insightful design thinking and beautifully crafted designs, Kocha also brought an incredible passion and energy to the project. He kept us well informed on progress and shared his ideas early so we could iterate together and ultimately arrive at the best solution.It’s hard to articulate exactly… but there’s an attention to detail in every question Kocha asked and every interaction we had along the project’s journey… not to mention every artefact he delivered.
Just a delight to work with and I’m looking forward to working with him again in the future.
— Andy Coffey, Design Lead at Uno home loans
I started working with Kocha when our product was at it’s very inception. Building v1.0 of a new product is extremely challenging, but with Kocha’s help our product has come to life in a wonderfully intuitive way.
The ability to give Kocha a conceptual UX problem to solve and then work through his many great ideas was a great learning experience for me. We gave Kocha a few curve balls, like dealing with Branding at the same time as setting up the initial UX and Kocha always delivered the goods.I benefited from Kocha’s thoughtful application of his skills and experience as a product designer and have a new appreciation for the power of great design.
I would highly recommend Kocha and his agency.
— Carl Prins, CEO & Co–Founder at Handled
Kocha is a powerhouse of creativity and is a very accomplished designer and director. He can lead a team with ease and is extremely efficient.
During my time at Freelancer.com Kocha was the Mobile design team lead. He pushed user interaction, satisfaction and retention to an all time high, accomplished his tasks to brief and usually ahead of time. I was lucky to have worked with him on a few projects and the direction he gave me to animate and create was clear and direct. There were few revisions as he knew what he needed down to the pixel and motion.
He also created and tested new products for the mobile team which made the process of the product more efficient. He is extremely design minded, professional and has a great working attitude. Anyone would be lucky to have them on their team.
