Hello, My name is Julio,
I’m a UX/UI Designer, Product Designer, Art Director & Artist with a background in digital and integrated media, advertising and product design. My expertise extends across mobile, web, and alternate media designing solutions for brands and clients of diverse requirements. I've worked with teams of varying size and structure, collaborating and integrating assets while overseeing design and product quality.
Each project I meet with it’s own process, integrating business requirements with functional design criteria through culture and methodologies that include market study, experience maps, wireframes, user scenarios, etc - so that the end result is relevant, meaningful and effective for the end user.
I’m also a multimedia artist - well versed in different types of materials for mainly illustration and occasional sculpting. The images I create are usually short stories observing life from a dream-like perspective.
I'm based in Vancouver, BC where I recently completed a Masters of Digital Media at the Centre for Digital Media in Vancouver, BC. My Vancouver clients include Mobidia, Idea Rebel, Staples, PNI Media, Outside The Box Graphics, and GoGlobe - a Japanese education-connection platform for students in the Japanese Market.
