Lucia Carpio Solano – UI/UX Developer

 

Lucia is one of Gorilla Logic’s talented UI/UX Developers. She has more than 5 years of experience working with UI/UX and 16 years of design experience. Lucia began her career as a graphic designer at an advertising agency/ She switched to UI/UX in 2013. Lucia enjoys UI/UX because it requires an understanding of user needs and customs beyond the design itself. Outside of work, she enjoys baking and crafts like sewing or marking jewelry. Lucia also has 2 cats and also loves rock music.

How many years have you worked in your field? – I started to work in graphic arts around 16 years ago and I started in UX around 5 years ago. 

How do you spend your free time? – I like to sew, bake or make accessories. Sometimes I go to the movies or a rock concert. I recently discover bungee aerial dance, but I’m still learning how to not crash my nose on the floor XD

What is your most used tool in your office? – Post-it notes and Wacom.

What motivated you to pursue working in your current field? – I was tired of print materials and Ads. Ever since I started working I wanted to design websites and similar stuff, but back then brands didn’t invest much money into that kind stuff.
