Designing simple, meaningful things with digital brands, agencies and product owners focused on creating a big impact.

 
 

I'm a digital product design lead (UI/UX) who enjoys designing simple, meaningful technology that helps people — like custom software, user interfaces, mobile apps, responsive sites and digital ecosystems.

Since I was little, my interests have revolved around empathy and making the world a little more beautiful. Interested in bringing the beauty of ease into digital spaces, my aim is to bring out the potential of a product and extend it into the digital world with honesty, thoughtfulness and simplicity. 
 


Fun Facts About Me


I'm Transylvanian-American and my name means "Magical Creature" in Hungarian :)

I'm the first of my family to be born in the States

When not designing, you'll find me GETTING MY ZEN ON (I'm WORKING ON BECOMING a MEDITATION teacher), exploring a remote corner of the world, ABSTRACT PAINTING or improvising on jazz piano—I've been playing I WAS since 4-years-old!

"What a talent!!!! Tündi is a truly brilliant creative and a joy to work with. Her work is beautiful, strategically sound, and exactly what we needed. I wish we could bring her on full time!!! But I'll settle for a promise that we'll get her on our account again in the future. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me directly if you'd like any additional feedback. I'd gladly gush to you in person."

"Tündi is simply the best design lead I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. She was more than just a creative force — she was essential to our project’s success. She brought in new technologies, ideas, and prototyping processes that benefitted the team holistically and allowed us to complete the project with fewer revisions and a much faster timeline. She always clearly communicated any blockers, was quick to accept feedback, and was driven to perform her best work. I’d definitely recommend her to anyone needing a kick-ass creative."

"Truly creative people are like gold dust. In this industry, it's rare that you get to work with someone whose brain inspires you on a daily basis. Whose individuality and artistry seeps from everything they bear, wear and achieve. Tündi is an original card. Creative in every way. I was energized by Tündi each day I got to work with her. I learned from her, and she made my work better — always bringing something new and cool to the table. She pushed every time. Tündi is not afraid to take risks or fail, and it's what I love (and miss) most about her. She took me to new places and brought dead things out of me. As my professional partner, I couldn't have asked for someone more creative, hardworking and sweet. I'd be extremely lucky to work with her again. You'd be a fucking fool to not want to. And when you do...my advice: don't let go."

"Tündi’s a digital wizard! I recently had the pleasure of working with Tündi on a large product redesign, and not only was she amazing to work with, but she was a valuable key player throughout the design development process. Tündi’s knowledge of digital design brought another level to the work we produced. Her expertise, flexibility, collaboration with interdisciplinary teams and constant ability to raise the bar from a design perspective was incredible. As a producer you really can’t ask for a better digital consultant to partner with. Our project was under an aggressive timeline, and Tündi was not only very efficient, but the quality of work she brought to the table under tight deadlines was exceptional. I highly recommend working with Tündi, and I hope our paths cross again in the digital arena! She’s a rock star."

"I hit the jackpot when I got to work with Tündi! Tündi was referred to me with brilliant recommendations. Having worked with her on a major digital project I can only speak highly of her and her work. Besides being super knowledgeable, strategic and talented, she ELEVATED the project with her ideas and creative direction. I’m super-excited to see the project launch. The way the work was conceived and executed will catapult our overall brand identity and user experience. What can I say, Tündi is an all-around talent, just great to work with and a huge asset."

"Tündi is one of the best digital creatives I have ever worked with. I hired Tündi on a new digital product for a creative agency. Anyone who has worked on an agency project knows the hurdles and headaches involved. However, in a short period of time she delivered a beautiful modern design that elevated the company’s digital presence. Tündi is thoughtful in her design approach. She takes the time to familiarize herself with a brand so that her designs are aligned to a brand’s core identity. She is very knowledgeable of the rapidly evolving digital landscape and partners closely with the technical team (developers, UX & information architects) to deliver the highest quality end product. I look forward to working with her again and I would recommend her to anyone looking to partner with a forward thinking digital director."

"Tündi was an invaluable colleague on a recent large scale site design project for one of our biggest clients. The task, context and timeline was quite aggressive — simply put, we couldn't have done it without her and her formative skill set. 

But probably one of the most unquantifiable talents Tündi brought to our project was a relentless and infectious passion for design and problem solving. I watched her share her considerable expertise and resources not only with other creatives around her, but also with people from different departments. In this regard I especially valued having Tündi on our team and wholeheartedly recommend her for any projects where you need a true renaissance creative.

"Tündi—whose name will challenge your knowledge of keyboard shortcuts—and I worked together extensively on several projects, so I can vouch for her awesome taste and general greatness. She managed to make one client in particular look cool and relevant—a herculean task if ever there was one. That project was killer (a beautiful-yet-systematic design with tons of UX & tech requirements), and she absolutely destroyed it. 

She's a great collaborator and team member, seasoned with client presentations, and super stylish to boot. Really one of my favorite creatives!"

"Tündi is f*cking BRILLIANT + unbelievably humble. No, seriously, check out her website; she is no joke. She's won major design awards and accolades for her digital creativity. This woman is whip smart and goes through books like some of us go through jammies (Yes, I said "jammies" and not underwear because...ew!) Digital is her game and she's a ROCKSTAR at it. Oh and she's gorgeous, too! Thanks for inspiring us by being the humble, brilliant, creative genius that you are, Tündi!"

"I've had the pleasure of working with Tündi across several projects. Each and every time, I was impressed with Tündi's ability to work seamlessly and collaboratively between UX, visual and technology teams to deliver systematically-sound, intuitive and beautiful experiences. I appreciated and looked forward to working with her, where she would either challenge my designs or provide input that would lead to a better solution for all team members involved. Tündi's grasp of branding, interactive design and systems level thinking was clearly evident across industries—whether she tackled luxury, fashion/beauty or travel."

"When was the last time someone walked into your life and saw all the ways your artistic vision, that is (literally) bigger than you, could become reality? Tündi Szász has just blown my mind. And, handed me a plan of attack. This year is about finishingshitIstarted, and it is all about to get really interesting."
