Hey!


My name is Maria and I am based in Cambridge, UK. I am currently enrolled in an Interaction Design and User Experience (UX) Master’s Degree at the Open University of Catalonia, Barcelona, Spain.

In 2021 I graduated in Graphic Design and digital creations at the same university and in 2018 I also finished a certificate of high education in light, capturing and image processing.

Outside of the design world, I love to read books (any recommendation is welcomed), learn new skills, travel, gardening and spend time with my family.

Get in contact if you want to talk about some of my projects, chat design or just have a coffee.
