What I've done


2021–Now · Hands-on Design Advisor

Parma is a relationship management app for entrepreneurs. It stores meeting notes to remember follow-up actions and decisions made with the client.

I help the team to conduct design experiments, brainstorm new ideas, work on user experience and design the website.

I had the pleasure of working with Eli on our latest project, and I must say, his exceptional product intuition, impeccable taste, and unwavering customer focus truly set him apart. Eli has ability to understand not only the technical aspects but also the emotional needs of our customers. I couldn't be happier with the results, and I highly recommend him for any design task. He's a true asset to our team!

Mark Kofman
Founder of Parma


Since 2023 · Business Designer

This is a browser snooker simulator game with online matches and a feel of a professional match table.

My work is to make the game profitable. I'm also responsible for managing the development team.

Eli is more than just a designer; he really gets both the design and the business side of things. He doesn't just make what you ask for, as he digs deep to understand what's actually needed to make things work. I love how he thinks through every problem, always focusing on what's best for the business. He's got a great eye on detail and aesthetics, and he knows exactly how to make interfaces user-friendly. Generally speaking, working with Eli is great. He's easy to get along with and makes any project a breeze.
