Hi, I'm Carlos a New York based Product Designer

 

Well rounded Product Designer with years of diverse experience creating innovative, successful web and mobile solutions. My passion is to develop clever and compelling solutions to complex challenges

Currently I oversee the visual and user experience design on all Novus applications. My professional background has allowed me to work with some amazing companies such as Priceline and Deloitte Digital. I have lead efforts in design strategy, conducted user/client research, and applied user-centered design principles from inception to completion.

I have also had the great fortune to have lived in Denver, Colorado for 8 years. While in Denver, as an Interactive Designer for Kroenke Sports & Entertainment, I provided creative direction for the following internal clients: The Denver Nuggets, Colorado Avalanche, Colorado Mammoth, Colorado Rapids, NDP Lacrosse, Pepsi Center, Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, Paramount Theatre, and 1STBANK Center.

After KSE, I joined Übermind, aquired by Deloitte Digital, as a Sr. Visual Designer/Web Engineer. Having a broad background in user experience also allowed me to later join the UX team. As a Sr. User Experience Architect, I lead projects, pitched and developed strategies, as well as, provided mentorship to junior designers.
