Samanta Aquino

I'm a generalist product designer with a strong sense of ownership.

I leverage my years of experience in remote work, visual design, user research, and coding to tackle design challenges and create intentional experiences.

A little bit of background

On Fall 2015, I kicked my comfort zone to the curb and moved away from the tropical paradise I called home back in the Dominican Republic to pursue new challenges in my career.

I hold a Bacherlor’s degree in Graphic Design, but I’ve been playing the HTML/CSS game for over 6 years. Not too long ago, I was actually most comfortable writing my own mark-up and obsessing over CSS architecture. These days, however, I’m more focused on understanding the needs and expectations of the people that use the products I help build.

Right now, I’m looking to join a design team that’s passionated about the discovery process and relies heavily on user research, prototyping and user testing to build the future of their products. What do you say—Are we a match? Get in touch, and let’s find out.
