myself

 

Hey! Thank you for stopping by! My name's Angela Sanchez and I'm a UX Designer who loves to solve problems creatively.

My passion for designing started in 2006 when I began to study Advertising and Public Relations.

I started my way through the UX world working in FacePhi, a biometric company based in Alicante where I worked as Communications Manager and UI Designer.

My first work there was to create the whole design for a mobile app called "Selphi" which was presented at Mobile World Congress 2016 held in Barcelona and then at Money2020 in Las Vegas.

Searching for new challenges, I decided to move to Madrid and work for the biggest Spanish consulting firm called Indra. But, after acquiring all the expertise and know-how, I keep going with my career and I moved (again).

I'm currently based in Amsterdam (The Netherlands) where I'm working as UX Designer in a global creative company called MediaMonks.

Do you like my work? Do you want to work with me? Don't hesitate to reach out.
