I'M CATA, NICE TO MEET YOU!

I’m a chilean Industrial Designer, with 8 years of experience in UX/UI, specialized at Nielsen Norman Group.

I've worked for B2B and B2C companies, for software related to healthcare, mining and, most recently, food e-commerce industries.

You can learn a little bit of the services I provide down below this page or go see a sneak peak of some projects I've been working on through these years.

WORKSHOP & MENTORING

Are you here because you want to learn something or need guidance to run a Workshop?

 

If you need help with this kind of activities or information of any kind, I can help to build a best experience for you or your team. I'm all ears!

PRODUCT DESIGN

I've worked from research to ideation, from general requirements to user stories, from user test to assets and UAT.

If you are looking for someone with this kind of experience, don't hesitate and drop a message.

CONSULTING & FREELANCE

I'm always open to new projects and challenges (and make extra coins).

If you are here looking for a designer to help you achieve your business goals for an app, do some research or just ask for advice, let's talk!
