What my experience brings

Understand

Empathize and define

The purpose of any design project is to create a desired reality in a given context and for a particular group of people. Identifying the needs of users and understanding the objectives of the business and the digital product to be developed are the first steps to design... Design for people!

Explore

Ideate and prototype

Combine all the research, observe where the problems of the users are and translate them into solutions by means of the construction of functional and interactive representations.

Materialize

Test and implement

Returning to users for feedback is crucial to identify significant improvements, failures to be solved and possible shortcomings, provided that this is the case is necessary to conceive and prototype again.
