Design + Strategy

Hi, I'm Migle, an Interaction Designer at Google Zürich. Experienced in working within international and multi-disciplinary teams in tech and design consulting. I'm passionate about creating innovative and meaningful user experiences that empower people and align with business goals.

Driven by empathy and optimism, I enjoy combining skills from the entire user-centred design process. From user research, sketching, wireframing, prototyping, visual design, leading workshops/sprints to delivering stakeholder presentations. Delighted when organizing design events, giving talks, moderating panels, and mentoring design talent.  

Always happy to chat. Reach me at:
migle@miglemigle.com or LinkedIn.
