Product Designer

About

Direct yet conceptual. Provocative and engaging. Design & illustration for brands, publications, and people.

 

I was born and raised in the Canary Islands. After completing my studies at Elisava in 2011, I relocated to Madrid, where I started working at Fjord. After 2 years, I moved to New York. In 2017, I joined Squarespace’s Product Design team, where I currently focus on designing end to end experiences for Squarespace’s CMS.

I have worked for a myriad of global clients like: Citibank, RTVE, Globo.com, Verizon, AIG, BBVA, Fon, Celebrity Cruises, Bose, Sprint, and many others. My articles have been published by Awwwards and UX Collective.

I believe a profound understanding of the business side and technicalities related to our field is key to designing and releasing solid products. I live in the line between aesthetically pleasing artifacts and functional experiences.
