Curious, data-driven and emerging tech enthusiast.

I'm Marcos Rezende, a Sr. UX Designer skilled in Product Analytics and Strategic Thinking with a knack for innovating within constraints.

I've 14+ years of hands-on experience in digital products. Over the past 8 years, my primary focus has been on User Experience.

Born and raised in Brazil, at the age of 12, I was reporting bugs in an MS-DOS operating system to programmers. As a self-taught, at the age of 16, I designed my first web project. That's how I discovered this was a craft, and I decided to pursue it ↗.

Since then, I've had the opportunity to collaborate across different industry sectors focusing on data-driven decisions.

For a more in-depth understanding of my credentials and achievements, please reach out to me via LinkedIn ↗.

UX Process

Focusing on figuring out the right problem to solve is the core of my UX process. I always aim to focus on a user-centric approach through iterative sprints to deliver solutions that address both user needs and business goals. With a knack for innovating within constraints, I seamlessly adapt the UX process when the project calls for it.
