From Architect to UX Designer
...I knew that I wanted to study something creative, something that would nourish my spirit and be able to share my ideas and way of abstracting information to improve the quality of human life, that was when I made the decision to study Architecture, the mother of all arts...

However, that was my plan and I never thought how far my restlessness and curiosity about the world of design would go.

Over the years I learned to use the Ai and Ps design programs, to create good branding, and to understand the basics of web design until I reached the world of UX.

Characterizes me, my passion for creating, the detailed organization, neat and clean design, and storytelling ability that is something that I love to do!
Today I can say that

I am a UX designer with experience in Architecture, Design, and Visual Arts.

I have experience working in Interior Design and Branding, where I specialized in the development of Project Management via construction finishes and marketing campaigns via social networks. In my role, I analyzed the client's needs from the initial contact to the point of delivery, identifying the client's needs in the best way.

On the other hand, as a Visual Artist, I have had the opportunity to develop abstract and complex concepts and simplify them into shapes, colors, and images. Also in being my own marketing manager and losing the fear of knocking on doors to expose my work.

After some time working in these professional fields,

it seemed natural to me to move into user experience design and to be able to incorporate all my previous experience

both in my specialty in project management and my creativity, in order to create satisfying experiences and product solutions.

My key skills include:
• User Research (Competitor Analysis, User Interviews, Data Analysis)
• User Flows
• Prototypes
• Branding
• Style Guides
• Storytelling
• iOS, Windows, Photoshop, Illustrator, and Figma.
