Basics about me

Born in 1988 in Costa Rica, I have always gone happily through life. I studied Advertising Design in Veritas University (San José, Costa Rica), and after a few years working in my own country, I moved to Budapest in July, 2013. There, I found one of the best companies ever: Quince. I have spent the last four years fascinated by the so many differences in culture, architecture and design, and living my dream of traveling in Europe while meeting people from around the globe.

I am an optimistic, people person, music lover, quick learner, perfectionist, curious, feminist, easy going girl :)

Personality

Curious and observant — I try to notice everything around me. I love to understand how things work and I am not afraid to ask questions.

Perfectionist — it could be assumed by some as a weakness, but I think that having this attention to detail is a big strenght in graphic design.

Friendly and open-minded — I enjoy listening and talking to people.

Adaptable and empathetic — I adjust easily to new surroundings. I am able to analyze and understand others’ perspectives effortlessly.

Quince Hungary Kft. — Budapest, HU

Along with the ongoing design projects (see below), I am in charge of managing the Bissell account: have weekly calls with the client, brief the team for each new project or request we receive, supervise the production until its completion, and make sure of delivering high-quality results.

At Quince, we produce e-learning content for the clients’ products. In collaboration with the project manager and the team, we build up a concept and design for each training. 
The process (and my tasks) are: after receiving the briefing through the project manager, research about the new product and its functioning, give feedback about doubts or missing assets, construct an explanatory storyboard and design the training based on the branding guidelines – always attending precisely the customer’s feedback.
Key clients: Whirlpool, Indesit, Bauknecht, Philips, HTC, and Bissell.
