Testimonials

  • Victor was brought on board to provide UX to create a CMS system for the Google Marketing team that manages static/marketing content. He worked with the team for 6 months and was the sole UX Designer for a team of 12 Google CorpEng developers in Sunnyvale, CA and New York, NY.

    I managed Victor at Google while he worked on designing the user experience for the new Google CMS for Marketing. He came in as the project had already started, and with his UX expertise he quickly understood the needs and requirements and started defining the required UI for the project. In parallel he helped guide user research to validate how the product will be used internally by key stakeholders.

    Victor defined the UX and visuals that tightly adhered to Google’s Material Design guidelines, created deliverables and worked with a remote team of developers to successfully define a great solution for a very technically challenging product.

  • I hired Victor to work on Cisco’s Corporate Social Responsibility’s platform as an interaction designer. What I ended up with was not only an interaction designer but also someone with visual design and user research experience, too. Lucky me! Victor’s blend of technical know-how and creative user experience design skills made him a valuable team member. Victor also had the ability to work through complex scenarios, consider all options and caveats and produce the right recommendations for the best user experience. His nature is to be empathic so truly understood client/customer needs, then had the ability to translate that into a great user interface. Victor was a real pleasure to have on my team.

  • Victor worked with my team at PayPal and quickly established himself as one of my most trusted designers. In everything from end-to-end design strategy, wire framing, prototyping, and stakeholder interaction, Victor knew instinctively what to do without being told, and executed on it flawlessly. We miss having him on our team!

  • Victor was always very thoughtful on the subjects of User Experience and Service Design. He played a major part in internal discussions, initiatives and the knowledge sharing culture of LBi’s User Experience department. He is a talented worker, as well, balancing professional consulting and client relationship skills with a high degree of interaction design craft. He was a big loss to LBi UK.

  • I worked with Victor during 2007 at LBi London. It was an absolute pleasure. He has boundless energy, enthusiasm and a rare approach to UX that seems to based as much on intuition as it is on formal skills. He is also quite fearless and never shy about provoking debate – a vital skill when working in a cross-disciplinary environment. He has managed to channel the trademark South American passion into his work – and I believe any creative team would benefit from his presence.

  • Victor is a great designer. His ability to put Fluidtime’s ideas in graphics and his clearness when designing the interfaces to our services were simply amazing to me.

  • Victor has to be one of the most knowledgeable and multi-talented web professionals I have worked with in recent years. Although he worked at Brilliant as a Senior Creative but his ability to look at a brief from both a creative as well as a technical perspective made his recommendations highly valuable to the project. I’d be more than happy to recommend his services to anyone.

  • Victor is extremely sharp and in complete mastery of his subject matter. He can be relied on to have thought through and come up with solutions to problems tactical and strategic. He is always willing to accept the suggestions of others, and just as willing to push forward with his own ideas, when he knows precisely what needs to be done. His seriousness about his work is unmistakeable. I highly recommend Victor as a UX/IA designer, and as a team leader.

  • Victor is an excellent UX practitioner. He takes a very pragmatic approach to UX design and is very focused on making sure his design solutions are user-centered. He is also very good at brainstorming and coming up with multiple solutions for complicated UX problems. He has worked extensively on responsive web projects and has a strong POV on how a responsive site should be designed, which was very helpful.

    He is diligent and hard working, and would be a great asset to any UX team!

Should UX designers code? 2016-02-05

Short answer: not really. I've always disliked the word "should". It takes out all the joy of reasoning, understanding and deciding on a subject. You see, I'd prefer to expose the advantages and shortcomings of the issue and let each one choose...

Ten things I’d like to tell my son if he’d become a UX designer 2016-01-29

Becoming a father has changed the way I see the learning process. Now that I have a son, I realise he might one day learn things as I did, by sheer curiosity and an avid exposure to the world of knowledge. And as I've seen around, he might...

Every (design) experience, one (design) experience 2016-01-28

Designing for any interactive medium is like writing a story. You choose your characters (target audience), try to describe them the best you can (personas), then imagine them doing many things around your product/service (user journeys), in many...
