welcome

I'm a designer from Madrid, Spain, living in warm Minneapolis, USA. I specialize in product design, user experience and human-system interaction. This is my online portfolio.

strengths

Form follows function. There's nothing wrong with I like that or that looks great, but if you start with it works beautifully, everything else is a slam dunk.

  • Data-Driven

    Not everyone knows how to leverage data to inform design decisions without sacrificing creative innovation. I do.

  • Responsive-Minded

    User interfaces have always been a product of human-centric design. It's why HTML, CSS and the web itself are responsive.

  • Visually Literate

    A strong graphic background helps me communicate form efficiently and powerfully, without losing focus on function.

  • Lean

    I'm well versed in iterative process and how to seamlessly weave design into fast product development cadences.

testimonials

Some nice things happy customers have shared about my work.

  • Good design relies on, and is shaped by experience. Alfonso has experience in spades; which comes in quite handy. He is equally adept designing a product, as he is with his team at a whiteboard or leading a client meeting. During my time working with Alfonso he was not only a great teammate and collaborator, but also part sage. Alfonso positively influenced our work and client relationships, but also my way of thinking. You can't ask for anything more than that.

    Josh Thompson Experience Strategy, Slalom Consulting
  • Alfonso is one of the most talented user experience professionals that I've had the opportunity to work with. He truly understands UX is not just about shiny designs, but more about taking the time to have customer empathy, solve their pain points and deliver compelling experiences. Alfonso was also instrumental in helping push the team toward a true agile framework by supporting the team through user validation research, guerrilla testing and driving lean UX practices. He is a product managers best friend.

    Robert Mews E-Commerce Product Manager
  • Alfonso has some of the most innovative and technically sound interactive creative work I have seen to date. He is passionate and sincere about design. His work is thoughtful, highly creative and he makes the most appropriate use of emerging technology. He is a loyal and humble employee.

    Kathryn Duncan Managing Partner at CLICK Talent
  • I worked with Alfonso on an ecommerce team for a little over a year. From the moment he joined the team, Alfonso was ready to take on any challenge that came his way. He is a true leader in a business and user experience sense. Alfonso doesn't let tools define him, but he instead uses tools in innovative ways to solve problems for users. He mentored me for over a year and truly shaped the designer I am today. I would work with him again in a heartbeat. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to think in new ways, and create effective experiences for all users.
