At the beginning of 2021, Opera launched the new innovative chat service called Hype where I was leading the design part and worked closely with developers to build a messaging client inside our browser Opera Mini. The user experience was tailored to African markets such as Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana and South Africa where we quickly gained traction. Today, we provide millions of users with a modern communication tool with custom emojis.
My team and I won the 2021 Red Dot Design Award in the category Social Networking App. The Red Dot Award is a global industry leader in design and user experience and is well-known in the world of UX.
