UpLabs product user-experience and design system creation.

A community-driven platform where designers and developers find and share resources to build better apps and websites.


UpLabs is a community where designers and developers can interact and share resources to build better digital products.

Backed by Y Combinator, UpLabs is a startup founded by Matt Dellac and in 2016 I had the opportunity to collaborate with them for some months helping the team solve some obstacles and at same time design more features.

Submission Process

When I joined the team, this was one of the most confusing and biggest pain-point of the whole platform. The submission process is what allow community members to upload new content to discuss and it should be as straightforward as possible. Having that in mind we developed some concepts and ended up with an incredible result.

Market is the place where users buy and sell resources. From code snippets to complete UI kits, UpLabs can build a great income from it.

Working with Diogo has been an amazing experience. He’s extremely reliable, consistent in his work and more important is a very fast learner.He understands things really quickly and was always going beyond our expectations with great communication. I highly recommend him as a remote product designer.
