Hi, I'm Carmen!
As a UX designer who has often been the sole designer in many of my projects, I have learned to become a multidisciplinary designer and leader throughout the entire design process.
Some of the roles that I’ve dabbled with range from execution and pushing pixels at a junior level, to creating design systems and taking on a senior role by managing a junior designer, to writing detailed product scopes.
For the next path in my career, I hope to find a place that will allow me to continuously learn, grow and explore my passion as a designer.
I am based in Canada, currently living in Montreal.
Before Narcity Media, I came from a traditional interdisciplinary design background.
I am a self taught UX/UI designer with over 5 years of experience, who started her career in Graphic Design in 2012.
What really drives me in life and why I became a designer,
lies in the constant opportunity to create products that can impact users in a positive way. By building connections with the user, I hope to better understand their pain points in order to solve their problems, while improving their overall experiences.
When I travel, I’m obsessed with discovering coffee shops and documenting my food adventure.
(shout out @yi_ling_eats 🙋🏻♀️).
I also have a big love for teaching, mentoring & leading.
