How did you get into design?

I studied fine arts and specialized in painting, then I moved to London and after a few years there I went back to Sevilla and started a master in graphic design. I worked in some advertising agencies as a graphic designer and an art director and then moved to Madrid, where I begun working with product designers in different startups, by then I started different courses and a master related to UX/UI design.

Why are you at Liferay?

I already knew people in the Madrid design environment working there and had actually gone to the offices for some Design talks and conferences, but it was recently that two colleagues I had worked with on other companies had joined the team and they only had good words about the project.
