This is me - Helen

This is Helen Lopez

Senior UX/UI Designer | Cooperative | Logical

Hi, I’m Elena, but everybody knows me as Helen 😛

I am a User Experience and Interface product designer providing service for the health department and the government of Catalonia (Spain) at Fail Fast Studio, and a former worker for brands such as Kubik Data, SEAT, Volkswagen Group & HP.

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

At the same time, I specialize in Product Design and I love solving problems. I’m excited by the process of determining user needs from research, creatively using tech to satisfy those needs, and thinking critically about the limitations and peculiarities to make sure that the solution scales.

My experience in design started in 2009 but since 2012 I have 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 you might face.

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

Want to see my work?

Thanks for stopping by.
