👋 I’m Ignacio,  a Digital Product Designer

I'm fascinated by harnessing Design to transform products into delightful experiences.

Thanks so much for visiting, unfortunately, I'm still working on a wonderful experience for mobile users like you.

I do apologize for the inconvenience, but 88% of my visitors are desktop users (according to Google Analytics), so I'm taking a bit longer to build the mobile site.

Please, do come back when you are on desktop

Or send me an email and I'll send you a personal greeting and link.

Other things I’ve been up to

Writing & storytelling   ·   2019

Writing for Better Humans

Better Humans is one of the most demanding publications on Medium, only publishing professional articles by top experts on human potential and self-improvement. I’ve been lucky to publish an article with them about how I use Google Maps to save my favourite places around the world.
An example of how I apply design to streamline and adapt the tools I use every day.
Part 2, a design case study about how I would tweak Google Maps to make it more powerful and valuable for users was the inspiration for this article and will be coming soon.

Industrial Design Projects

I’m fully committed to User Experience Design— but if you have the time, with physical and digital products becoming ever more intertwined, I believe that my Industrial Design projects can shed light into my thinking as a designer.

Búcaro

The botijo is an ancient water carrier that cools water without the need for electricity just like magic — it’s actually physics.  I wanted to bring its design into the 21st century and make a few improvement along the way.

Whale Tissue Holder

The beautiful and clean design of the tissue holder allows it to be displayed anywhere where it’s needed. It also reduces waste by using toilet paper which allows taking just the amount needed.

Non Literal Product

The brief was: ”design an electronic product that has not prescribed function.” Even then, what interested me most was creating delightful experiences with functional objects. That's why I decided to explore around the idea of a remote.

I’m available for work, are we a good fit ?

What can I offer?

I’m a pragmatic, analytical designer. A believer in the power of design to find human-shaped solutions to complex problems.

I bring a beginners mindset with and open-minded, can-do attitude — ready to soak up knowledge form all areas of the business and become an integral part of the team.

What am I looking for?

My goal for the coming years is to learn, grow, and earn a strong foothold in the world of User Experience.

I’m looking to join a team of people that are excited to go to work every morning, that demand and produce top work and that believe in the power of design to build relevant and engaging products that people love to use.

That’s a shame,
but thanks for stopping by!

👏
