My name is Joseph Kalu, and I design digital products.

I love solving complex human problems with simple, beautiful, and human-centered solutions while lowering costs and increasing an organization’s value.

It is my duty as a product designer to lay down the specifications and the manufacturing procedure for my team. I identify a problem, describe it, and then recommend a strategy for overcoming it.
