About

Hola again! My name is Sara Martinez. I’m an interdisciplinary designer working across digital and UI design, to deliver the best user-centred products.

With a background in graphic design, I have over four years of industry experience working on projects from concept to deliverables, and creating engaging digital experiences. Building a cohesive and coherent visual language following UX methodologies in all platforms is my main focus.

Design has been part of my life since I was very young and discovered in high school that I wanted to do something creative. But I have always been more of a problem solver than an artist, so design was the logical path for me. And I have never regretted choosing it.

I speak Spanish (native language) and English (full professional proficiency).

In my spare time I like to explore cities and discover old signage, nicely decorated pubs (especially if they also have good beer) and to draw in the sketchbook I always carry with me.

And precisely drawing is the key starting point for all my projects. Pencil and a white blank page, where I sketch ideas, storyboards and wireframes.

Clients

During my time in agencies in Madrid and London I’ve had the privilege to work with clients from all industries – from financial services to food & drink – which has led me to have an in-depth knowledge in the design process and development of products regardless of the type of project.
