I am a user experience designer with a strong interest in business & lean thinking. Two little humans call me mom and I am the wife of a great guy who actually introduced me to this awesome industry. I love all things art, design & photography. I also speak English, Portuguese & Spanish.
With over 5 years of experience in UX Design I have worked with clients such as Subway and Dollar General. I also have about 9 years of experience as a graphic & web designer.
I am self-taught, and absolutely love what I do. With immense passion, I always seek to learn new skills and ways to continue to improve my skills and 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.
Sketch, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, Invision, Zeplin, Trello, Proto.io, Post its, Pencil & Paper!
I am a motivating team player who loves to co-create products & services that make lives of people more convenient and fun.
I have a hands-on mentality, lots and lots of thinking, brainstorming, then creating and testing to validate the assumption. With contagious enthusiasm, I motivate people to think out of the box, rethink logic and create awesome BEAUTIFUL stuff that works.
