About me

I’m a UX Designer with prior 6 years generating ideas for campaigns in the Advertising world. After working on projects involving emerging technologies, my interest in UX evolved and I decided to explore it as my next career development. UX encompasses the things I am most passionate about. From strategic thinking, through to ideation and finally visual design. But mostly, I love how it generates relevant solutions to users’ day to day problems. My friendly nature makes me a great team player and would be thrilled to work in a collaborative and nurturing environment.

    • Trained in UX principles such as user research, design, prototyping and iteration process in an agile way. Implemented the learnings in 3 concept projects and 1 client project: Client project for Common Objective, a B2B fashion platform - 2 weeks-group sprint. Improved the website navigation and implemented features to increase user engagement. I co-lead the project, facilitated the Design Studio, crafted most of the presentation and designed the high-fidelity wireframes. This project helped to expand my skills in information architecture, usability testing and client management. “Fernanda and the team showed a great deal of curiosity and care for the needs of our users, and were able to untangle complex challenges to create clean simple solutions.” - Qiulae Wong, Co-founder of Common Objective Concept project for AppleTV+ app - 2 weeks-group sprint Developed an additional feature to increase users engagement of the Apple TV app. Our solution helped users decide without having to browse endlessly. I grew my skills in user research and competitive analysis and learned how to collaborate efficiently under pressure. Concept for Progress Hardware - 2 weeks-group sprint Informed the product taxonomy and created an efficient navigation for a fictional hardware e-commerce site. The research was conducted in a group, but the solutions were individual. In particular, I expanded my skills in card sorting, competitive analysis and information architecture. Concept for a baking app - 1-week solo sprint The first UX project of the course involved ideating an app to enhance the baking experience of a classmate. My solution allowed users to follow through a recipe while cooking without having to touch their phones. I expanded my skills in user research, paper testing and prototyping.
