Hi, my name is Hector L. Santiago, and I'm a Sr. UI/UX Designer
As a UI/UX Designer, I have been involved in numerous projects that include creating a design influenced by user needs and requirements while considering the business goals and technological constraints. Having worked in small startups and large companies, I bring elements of lean to my work and strategies to identify new opportunities for streamlining processes. Working within cross-functional teams, I thrive when aligning design with engineering to provide a cohesive product development experience.
Hello there! My name is Hector L. Santiago, and I'm a Senior UI/UX Designer based in Frisco, Texas. I'm planning and organizing the next Design System for Michaels Store using Atomic and Function Structures. I'm confident in my ability to complete this task successfully.
Over the past two years, I have successfully developed and implemented six design systems, demonstrating my expertise in planning, organizing, and executing design projects. I excel at bringing clarity and structure to the design process and am skilled in using industry-standard tools such as Sketch, Adobe XD, and Figma (including plugins). My proficiency in Figma is particularly noteworthy. I am highly skilled in creating components with constraints to ensure responsiveness and utilizing auto-layout to achieve speed and consistency in my designs.
In my past roles, I've worked as a Sr. User Experience Designer for Appgate, a User Experience Designer for Copart, an Assistant Manager for Amazon, and a web consultant for Hostgator. I have extensive experience as a web designer and developer in San Juan, Puerto Rico, which has given me a deep understanding of the industry.
My passion for UI/UX design began in 2008, and I've been continuously learning since then. I take a user-centric approach to my designs and work closely with product and development teams to ensure flawless execution. Seeing my designs come to life as great websites and apps is incredibly satisfying.
