My name is Ramsés and I am an Interaction Designer. I was born in the paradise-like Canary Islands and moved to a small town in Denmark in 2016.
I work as a Product Designer at Sketch, where I focus on designing Sketch for the web, tinkering with internal tools, and collaborating with others. I love designing, and I am especially interested in the human dynamics behind it: the collaboration, processes, and tools that bring it all together.
Outside of work, you’ll find me playing video-games, taking photographs — or just geeking out.
Most of my inspiration comes from meeting people from all around the world while traveling and from practicing minimalism and simple living.
Background and education
I graduated as an Industrial Design Engineer. Even though I never worked in the Industrial Design field, completing that degree was a key step towards my path as an Interaction Designer. I got interested in design methodologies and learned to appreciate the processes.
In 2016 I earned an MSc in User Experience Design. It expanded my knowledge in areas such as human-centered design, accessibility, usability, and offered a wide variety of skills that I am still applying daily.
My interest in collaboration and creativity led me to join online education at IDEO U and obtain a certificate in Creative Leadership.
The people I work with usually say I’m good at describing complex problems in visual abstractions. I love making ideas and concepts tangible. In my eyes design is a tool of communication and expression. It is a collective activity by nature. We design for and with other people. A good design is an asynchronous conversation with people that interact with what we built.
In the past, I’ve worked in industries such as media, sports booking, lottery, and education. Before joining Sketch in 2021, I worked as a Lead Designer at GAN Integrity building a legal compliance digital tool used by 2+ million people around the globe. At the moment I'm focused in onboarding experiences, internal tools and collaboration.
For most of my career, I have worked in small design teams. Thus, I am very familiar with executing in different phases of the design process.
My goal is to keep practicing design and exploring the human side of it. In the future, I long to travel and meet professionals from every corner of the world to understand the context of design in different cultures.
