Get to know me

I’m Borja, a 26 year-old designer currently based in Gijón, Spain and working remotely for a European company. I create better user experiences thanks to my good eye for human behaviour patterns.

Being a designer makes me eager to learn and further develop my skills. That’s why I’m always learning and creating content for others to learn. In fact, right this second, I’m most likely working on some side project…

I am currently working in Product Design in KaFe Rocks. I’m passionate about design, art, food, different cultures, travel and cats!
