I’m a passionate problem-solver with hands on experience in the design and development of websites, mobile application, tools and brand identities, with special interest in UX design, design systems and leadership. With a background in industrial design, I’ve helped hundreds of companies launching their products and producing various design artworks.
Born in Barcelona and moved to London after finishing university, I've always been passionate about art and design, and it wasn't until my early days in college when I started exploring with design and slowly I became a self-taught designer while studying as an industrial design engineer at uni. After a couple of years, I managed to help small and medium size companies, startups, entrepreneurs, music bands, record labels and festivals to build their digital user experiences. I have hands-on experience on the design and development of responsive websites, mobile applications and digital tools, as well as some experience in the prototyping and developing of physical products. I graduated as an industrial design engineer in 2015, and while studying I became a self-taught multidisciplinary designer with focus on UX/UI design and brand identity development, and at the same time learnt the basics of front-end development that allowed me to build the whole cycle on some of the projects I took part of. I'm also a writer for UX Collective and Prototypr and my articles have been featured by InVision, Marvel or Typeform.
I have been crafting websites, brand identities, user interfaces, and artwork designs for more than nine years now. I love building things from scratch, from the initial research to the final delivery. I learned both design and programming to be able to create digital products all by myself. And still today I can’t stop learning new languages and software in order to improve my skills.
When I’m not in front of a computer designing or learning about how to improve my skills in any front, you can find me traveling the world or exploring my passion for photography. I’m based in London but for the past two years I've been living a semi digital nomad live where I've been travelling to different parts of the world in order to understand how other people live and how our products and in particular the ones I've been working on can influence and improve their lives. I wrote about that and more on one of my blog posts that you can read by tapping here.
Over the years I've had the pleasure of collaborating in the design and development of multiple websites, apps and brand identities, all this while working as a member of design studios, startups, small companies and as the lead designer in charge of diverse freelance projects for bands, record labels and entrepreneurs from all over the world.
