Giselle is my name —

Creating better experiences for people is my game.


Human-centred design

HCD methodologies focus the design and development to create products and services that are truly valuable to our users.

function first

The core experience must be well understood and defined before moving onto the visual design.

design, test, repeat

Getting feedback early and often is the key to an intuitive user experience and alignment with stakeholders.

be the glue

A strong UX designer is someone who can be the glue between the product vision, engineering and usability, and can guide the team to a balanced and refined end experience.

team player

Cross-disciplinary teams create the best products. Period. Empowering team members multiplies the quality of work.
