I'm a UX & Product Designer with a passion for Design Thinking and products that provide great experiences.
Freelance - 2018
In a challenge on how to improve mental health in Canada, I wanted to provide a safe space where people living with depression can journal their feelings and find activities to keep their minds distracted when experiencing an episode.
With the idea of increasing community engagement and improving people's commute, I designed a prototype of a carpool mobile app, that accepts tokens of appreciation in exchange for rides. The project was done in 4 weeks applying the design thinking process.
The app's process included: Research, A Brief, Personas, Job Stories, Information Architecture and Users' Flow, Sketches, Wireframes, Branding, Prototype, Testing and an Alfa App (in collaboration with a developer). A sprint plan was used to stay organized and meet project's deadlines.
This project had an emphasis on user research and analysis and was designed using: Surveys, Clarity Canvas, Card Sorting, A Brief, Personas, Empathy Maps, Journey Maps, Facilitation, Low and High fidelity Wireframes, Testing and Iterating.

Hi, I'm Evelyn, a UX and Product Designer who likes improving people's lives, by learning about their struggles and applying design thinking on projects with the goal of providing user-centred products and great experiences.
Why UX? I’ve seen many times businesses showcasing their solutions to potential clients but the structure used makes the solutions hard to discover or to understand. The idea of helping enhance people's productivity and satisfaction by being some kind of liaison between a service and a person who's looking for a specific solution, was what lead me to be a designer.
Programs & Events
As a designer, I find important to stay active in the field and learn about diverse technologies, methods to increase work efficiency, innovative products that change the way users interact and listen to experiences from other people in the industry. Here are some programs & events I've attended in the past years to keep up with the field.
