Jaanus will be available to offer office hours to startups that have challenges with User Interface and User Experience design. This will start from 3rd November 2014.

Our next experteer is Jaanus Saakis, a creative director, designer and entrepreneurs based in Estonia.


User experience is the process of enhancing customer satisfaction and loyalty by improving the usability, ease of use and pleasure provided in the interaction between a customer and your product.


Products, services have become increasingly complex with the advance of technology. Despite all that, everything still hinges on how user perceive it. Is it easy to use? Is it pleasant to use? Does it give me value? This forms the basis on whether they come regular users.

As such, it is important that businesses develop products and services that user will enjoy working with.

Office hours is a component under Outbox EDU that seeks to offer one-to-one support to startups within the community.
