Looking for a full-time opportunity in London, UK, as a Product Designer (UX & UI), in-house or agency. View resume

Working atShoreditch Design Studio as a UX/UI Designer, Brainfood as a Visual/Motion Designer, and I created Design Journey to help people transitioning into UX Design.

LearningIDF courses, digital illustration, and motion design.

Previously

I have balanced a managerial job in hospitality while simultaneously running my own business selling illustrations online as well as offering freelance services such as custom illustrations, branding, and social media content, for many clients.

Why UX Design

My previous experiences made me realise that I love solving problems and help others have a pleasant experience. I transferred those skills into user experience design. Also, having an excellent eye for details from previous art studies in Spain translates well into user interface design.

In conclusion, my natural curiosity and interest in continuous learning have driven me in the pursuit of a UX/UI career. It was the best and the hardest decision of my life.

People I worked with

These are LinkedIn recommendations.

Casian was part of a UX/UI team LevelStudios engaged to redesign a Vegan/Vegetarian lifestyle app. We could not be happier with both him and his team’s work. Casian is a talented designer and helped us (a team of Developers) through the complex research design processes, sharing the reasoning behind the design decisions - something we greatly appreciated. Over a series of weekly, sometimes daily meetings involving stakeholders, developers, and the design team Casian was engaged, committed and it is obvious to see he cared about getting the best design solution for our project. We would not hesitate to work with Casian, a creative and highly professional designer, again.
