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.

    Brandon Anderson Director of Proudct. eCommerce at Bluestem Brands
  • I hired Alfonso as a consultant to come in and work on some complex data visualizations. There was no design precedent set prior to his involvement and the data was very complex. Alfonso created the groundwork and initial concepts that grew into a student dashboard that was eventually featured in the New York Times to explain the concept of incorporating transparent competencies into a degree plan.

    Steve Scofield Was Alfonso's Client at Capella University
  • I had the pleasure of placing Alfonso at Martin Williams. His energy, passion for interactive, sense of humor and dedication to his work is outstanding. I would highly recommend Alfonso for other interactive positions and would entertain the opportunity to work with him again.

    Jessie Novey, PHR Sr. HR Business Partner at C. H. Robinson
  • Alfonso joined my team as a freelancer to help us in time crunch. His even, calm demeanor was perfect for the time crunched project and the creative work was top notch. He’s got a very fresh design sensibility, very international in flavor; and he’s a skilled animator. I’d gladly hire him again if I had the opportunity.
