I’m Agata, currently living in Edinburgh and working as UX/UI & Visual designer at IBM. I’ve worked in Visual Communication for more than 9 years, going from Graphic & Digital design to User Experience & Interaction Design.
Over the past years, I led myself to immerse in a human-centered process, in order to try to understand the needs and habits of users. For me, to be a designer it’s not only to design interfaces that are pretty and simple to use. But, also, to design experiences that are valuable, accessible and enjoyable for users.
I’m the founder and editor of Des1gnON, an educational design blog I started in college, which is a place for students, beginners and professional creative people to learn more about how the design industry is actually like, and to keep up to date with trends and new technologies. It’s an award-winning blog, Best Art and Culture blog in Brazil in 2011, 2012 and 2014.
The Design Blog
We are part of a creative world, so it’s a fact that we must be aware and up to date with all design fields. Therefore, the blog was born in order to help all creative people.
It’s a blog written by designers and for designers, where we share concepts, knowledge, resources, tips, inspiration and creativity.
