Hi there! I’m Alexia, a strategic product and experience designer living in New York City.

I believe that the most comprehensive design solutions come from a robust human-centered design process, and I am happiest in collaborative environments where I can work directly with clients and users to satisfy their most pressing needs. I am particularly excited about projects in the social innovation sector.

I have recently joined the the growing team of designers at the argodesign offices in NY as a UX/UI designer. Previously, as a freelance design consultant, I had the privilege of co-leading the design and production of The Human Account project exhibition for Dalberg Design and The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

New York is my current home, but I was born in Venezuela and spent a portion of my childhood in Belgium. I have called the east coast my home for 17 years now. I recently completed my graduate degree at SVA’s Products of Design program where I dedicated my MFA thesis “Dare + Defy” to designing for women in the great outdoors. By following the human-centered design methodology I was able to develop a suite of design offerings that effectively satisfy women’s needs in this space. The solutions included a digital platform and experience, a service and a set of physical artifacts.

What about you?

Say hi! Let’s chat design over tea or coffee.
