👋 Hola! I'm Maria, an Interaction Designer with 10+ years of experience.

I'm really good at being on the fringe of two worlds. I've been the only designer in a company with almost a hundred developers. I’ve lived in several countries while working for different ones. I've led complex tech projects and I feel I can adapt to almost anything.

My articles represent me better than anything I've done, because they show how my brain works. You can read this one about how remote communication works; or this other one about the first steps towards introducing a design culture in an 8 years old developers-only team.

This color game is my—hopefully not—one hit wonder.

When I'm not working in one of my projects, I teach and mentor young designers.

I'm very aware of the space and impact of my actions, which is a feature and a bug. I'm interested in designing responsibly, measuring the result of my work in the world, ensuring I'm building products fitting a better future.
