Ensuring the Design and Development alignment

Hi, I’m Varya

As an independent consultant, I help companies to launch and boost their design systems. Focused on bridging the gap for designers, developers, and business specialists and seasoned with extensive experience in component-focused UI development.

Interview with James, the founder of this ultimate Notion Template for Growth

James is a growth marketer. He has worked on several projects, but the Notion Growth Workspace is his first side-project.
