ABOUT ME

I'm Marcos Rezende, a User Experience Designer born and raise in Brazil with over 12 years working on digital projects (5 years of experience in UX). I have a solid background in leading cross-functional teams and designing web-based applications focused on user-driven decisions.

I'm always thinking about the people behind the data, looking for the best ways to fill gaps through the user pain points.

I've been spreading my enthusiasm for designing by sharing my learnings and experience with students all over the world as a UX mentor at CareerFoundry.

Among my soft skills, I highlight:

Open-minded
Active listener
Critical thinker
Team player

UX PROCESS

I think Agile and Design Thinking are an excellent merge to problem-solving. In some cases, the Waterfall model could work superbly. It's about seeing what needs to be done. I'm flexible enough to adapt the UX Process when the project calls for it.
