Hi, I'm Migle, based in Zürich with my multiple passions!
Interaction Designer at Google
Independent Visual Artist
Ping Pong Player
I’m experienced in working within international and multi-disciplinary teams in tech, design consulting and the arts. I'm passionate about creating innovative and meaningful user experiences that empower people and align with business goals. I aim to bring joy through my design and art practices to homes and workplaces.
Driven by empathy and optimism, I enjoy combining skills from the entire user-centered design process. From user research, sketching, prototyping, visual design, leading workshops/sprints to delivering stakeholder presentations. Delighted when organizing design and arts events, giving talks, moderating panels, and mentoring design talent.
An avid ping pong player with 20 years of training and playing, I’m aspiring to coach more.
Always happy to chat 🎉
