MY STORY

A career driven by endless curiosity and love for stories

A career driven by endless curiosity and love for stories

elena_01

My career has been marked by a passion for communication and a constant determination to keep learning new things.

This love for stories and how they affect people, combined with a constant curiosity for new technologies, made me a Photoshop addict at the tender age of 12 and drove me to start a career in Film and Theater. There I learned new and wonderful ways to express and convey messages and ideas into moving images, that later complemented with a degree in Graphic Design to be able to express myself in a print medium.

As I didn’t have enough, and since I had discovered the wonders of the web, I did a master’s degree in Interface Design and Front-End, where I learned to apply all those principles and turn them into HTML and CSS language.

 
My interest for narrative and people made me develop a huge interest in Experience Design because it allowed me to get in the head of the users and empathize with them to know their stories, their needs and frustrations to later try to solve them in the most effective, simple and pleasant way possible.

WHAT DRIVES ME

To keep asking myself questions, to always be learning

To keep asking myself questions, to always be learning

Throughout all this time I always found something interesting and exciting in every field that I’ve worked on, which has led me to keep discovering and learning new disciplines by myself to complement my design knowledge.

That’s why, besides the expertise I gained working on different projects, I also have notions of UX writing, agile methodologies, sketchnoting or front-end programming languages like Javascript, as well as some backend understanding of PHP and Wordpress.

These and the skills I’m constantly learning from the people I work with are what allow me to be perfectly equipped to cover the entire digital product design process; from the early stages of research and analysis until documenting all the functional definition so it's ready to be implemented by the development team.
