Hello there, my name is Constanza, though most people call me Coni, which is easier to pronounce for non-Spanish speakers. I was born and raised in Chile,
in a small town called Graneros, an hour away from Santiago.
I've been drawing since I was a little girl but I never thought about studying Design until I graduated from high school. I actually didn't know what I wanted to do with my life... until I took a usability and UX design course in university and fell in love with the subject. I basically enjoy observing how people interact with technology.
If you want to follow my daily activity, you can follow me on: Twitter (tweets only in Spanish, sorry!) and Instagram. If you're interested in my professional career, we can be friends at Linkedin.
Wanna work with me? Just send me an email or use the contact form at the bottom of this page. I'll reply as soon as possible!
I love the process of starting with an idea on a piece of paper and then bring it to the computer. I pay a lot of attention to detail while doing this and I make sure I'm in tune with my front-end fellows!
Did I already mention I enjoy observing how people interact —and sometimes struggle— with techonolgy? Personas, wireframes, usability tests, user research, HCI, bring 'em on!
Yes! I strongly believe we never stop learning. I'm always in search of something new to learn, whether it's a new software, methodology or skill. I appreciate when I can learn from the people around me :)
Sketching, discussing ideas, create interactions and bring them to life in a computer is all part of my routine.
I'm used to working with computer engineers, developers and marketing strategists in an Agile environment using Scrum, kanban boards and tools such as Trello to manage my work with others.
Like I said, I'm always looking for something to learn so I highly appreciate when my workmates share their knowledge with me and viceversa. I always try to be the best person I can be —as cliché as that sounds—. For a more detailed look of my skills please don't hesitate to look at my LinkedIn profile.
