Hi there, I’m Hugo, a Senior UI & UX Designer based in Lisbon.

I was 4 years old when my dad gave me a ZX Spectrum. I started exploring it and was immediately hooked. Since then I have loved technology. Understanding how it works, exploring new devices and interacting with new platforms.

I started my professional career at 16, working as a freelancer on small web projects. For four years I studied Multimedia Engineering and then started working as web designer and front-end developer. After three years in that field I decided to focus on design, and have been working as a UI & UX designer since. Designing for TV, iOS, Android, Windows and OS X apps. Always focused on the best possible user experience.

An added bonus of being a designer with an engineering and marketing background is that I can, not only handle the graphical aspects of a project, but also fully understand and participate in the technical and business aspects.
To me, one of the most exciting things about designing products is that you are permanently learning and discovering new things about your users. You’ll learn about what features are valued by people and the impact that it can have on their lives. Technology has the ability of helping people in their daily lives as well as to lessen time consuming tasks. That’s why I love exploring it and creating new products.

After hearing from a few friends how amazing their work was and how Mokriya is managing a distributed team, I was fascinated. They introduced me and after that I knew that this was my dream job. It’s a pleasure to be part of a team with such seasoned professionals. To learn with them and at the same time have fun designing awesome products for our clients.
