Taly Martins Melo

Howdy, I am Taly

I’m a UX/UI/Product designer with a strong passion for business and lean thinking. When I’m not in design mode, I’m a proud mom to 3 little ones and the wife of an awesome guy who introduced me to this incredible industry.

Art, design, and photography light up my world, and I can chat fluently in English, Portuguese, and Spanish.

One of my absolute joys is working with someone who brings an Excel sheet to the meeting. There’s something magical about turning that into a functional tool that not only looks great but also boosts business efficiency. SaaS Rocks!

With over 14 years of design experience, including 8 years dedicated to UX design, I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with notable clients such as Subway, Dollar General, Amwell, Change Healthcare, and most recently, Optum in the healthcare sector. In addition to my design journey, I bring about 5 years of expertise in the healthcare industry and 4 years in SaaS and entrepreneurship.

Being self-taught, I absolutely love what I do. My journey is all about soaking up new skills, continuously improving, and infusing passion into my work.

Part of my process:
Understand the problem → Research existing solutions → Brainstorm ideas → Draw → Prototype → User Test → Improve (and then I repeat).

My passion for design goes beyond beautiful imagery and into the mind of the consumer, where I believe good design should solve problems and position a brand so it stands out as well as stands for something.

Favorite Tools:
Figma, Sketch, Adobe suite, Invision, Zeplin, Trello, Miro, Framer, Proto.io, Post its, Pencil & Paper!


I’m an enthusiastic team player driven by the joy of co-creating products and services that enhance people’s lives with convenience and fun. My approach is hands-on, involving extensive thinking, brainstorming, and the cycle of creating and testing to validate assumptions. Infused with contagious enthusiasm, I inspire others to think outside the box, challenge conventional logic, and collaboratively craft beautiful solutions that truly work.
