WHO AM I?
I am a tech geek with focus on product development
Hey, so glad you're here! Nice to meet you. I'm Hugo Maia, and I'm from Porto, Portugal. I've been developing my skills for over 17 years in various areas of design and programming. Recently, my curiosity about UX/UI design has led me on a 5-year adventure in the field, where I've been excelling in the development of various products.
The UX/UI design area turned into a passion for me, where I've been exploring and implementing products focused on user needs and providing a better user experience.
In these five years of dedication to UX/UI Design, I have worked for two multinational companies and for other independent projects that required my expertise. Right now I am looking for new oportunities to work on new projects (remote or on-site). I have one accredited certification in UI/UX Design by FLAG ACADEMY and other in UX Design by ACCENTURE.
