ABOUT ME

This is me - Helen

I’m Elena Lopez, a Senior UX/UI Designer

Hi, I’m Elena, but in the professional world, everybody knows me as Helen (now you have a choice to make :P). I am a User Experience and Interface lead designer developing new digital products in the advertising industry at Kubik Data, and a former worker for brands such as SEAT, Volkswagen Group & HP.

I am experienced in leading projects in international agile environments with in-house and third-party development teams.

My experience in design started in 2009 and in the last 6 years I focused on web & digital design work, I have completed an intensive Bootcamp focused on UX/UI Design at Ironhack Barcelona thanks to a Wallapop sponsorship. I also hold a degree in Graphic Design (ESDAP), and Web Development (CTS). The blend of business, product development, user research, and design background gives me a unique perspective on the challenges that you might be facing.

Aside from all this, I love to travel, I dig into music 24/7, snowboarding during winter, and I care deeply about equality and human rights.

Thanks for stopping by.
