Tika.ai is a San Francisco based startup. It is a virtual assistant created to manage people's daily priorities around their meetings and tasks. It unifies Google calendar, meeting notes and all task in one place.

My Role

My role was to help founders crystallize their vision of the product. As a result, I provided the wireframes together with the user flow. Based on these deliverables they developed their MVP.


I was a part of this project as a freelance designer for 2 months. My main responsibilities  were:

  • User research

  • Creating user flows

  • Layout exploration

  • Visual design

A few of the project highlights
