Mars In Real

Hi, I'm Mars!

Though, I'm born by the name Marivic So.

I'm here to make the digital world a better place by creating beautiful and functional UI, one project at a time.

My Working Process

Every UI mockup is a carefully thought masterpiece of a designer.
And I'm here to make sure every bits and pieces of it is implemented in a functional UI (User Interface), that is useful for your product's users.
Yes, I'm more of a front-end gal, and would prefer to work with a back-end person.


I can help you realize your ideas by creating design mock-ups, and styleguides that will fit your branding. If you have an existing system that needs a UI overhaul / uplift, I'd be happy to help you on that as well.


If you already have a design, I can work on developing that precious UI design onto a working front-end (markup, styles, and javascripts combined)

User Experience

Design is not just about the graphical aspect. How things are laid out in the UI to make a smooth and easy user flow is also important to make your user understand your business goals.

What My Beloved Clients & Teammates Say

Mars was a great addition to our team. She worked really well within our SCRUM framework and our technical requirements to provide the UI design skills that we were sorely lacking. We ended up with a great product that everyone agrees is the most beautiful application we have ever produced.
