As a Product Designer at Carto, I worked building and improving Builder, an open-source location intelligence tool that turns location data into business outcomes. Since the design team was a small one, we all worked with every department to ensure a cohesive design all around. That’s why I also juggled in some web, brand, and graphic design work.

Hipertextual is one of the most important online media outlets focused on technology, science, and culture in Spanish. During the three years I worked there, I started as a designer and ended up leading the company’s design and development team. Beyond managing the team, my job involved the creative direction of every product and collaboration and keeping good relationships with clients such as Telefónica. I was a hands-on designer working with my team to create beautiful websites, brands, and user experiences for the company and our clients.

For the final project of my Master in Game Design, we had to create a game for Android in a completely realistic work environment and schedule. We learned to work side by side with the other students from the Masters in Game Art and Game Development. I worked in almost every aspect of the design process, from concept development and level design to game balance optimization.

Experimenta is a renowned international design magazine from Spain. During my internship I worked curating new design projects to feature in the online magazine, doing design research for the revamp of their online store, and covered a Design Week, among other things. I learned a lot about editorial design and had first-hand contact with different design disciplines that shaped my interest towards design.
