Digital design and interaction
I am a digital designer from Chile based in London. I have been in a wide variety of projects both in academia and industry.
I owned and worked at a Startup, worked for several creative industries and I have conducted academic design research.
I specialise in the interdisciplinary mix between design, art, technology and science for the developing of novel visual and interactive designs.
I have been involved in more than 40 projects related to UX, art direction, editorial and branding for architects, visual artists, musicians, filmmakers, among others.
Besides design, I also draw and paint and I exhibited my artworks in 2015.
› BA in Design at Universidad de Chile.
› MSc in Human-Computer Interaction and Ergonomics (HCI-E) at University College London.
I am currently interested in researching in digital interactions outside screen-based systems and into the physical environment, leveraging inherent human interactions for solving everyday life’s problems through the use of physical user interfaces and sensor-based systems.
