About

Howdy! My name is Alfonso, and I’m a Seattle-based, Product (UX) Designer. Product Design’s ethos has resonated with me for a long time, and after many years spent as a Mechanical Engineer, I finally feel like I’ve made it home. I approach life with empathy, appreciate sharp visual design, and often find myself thinking about how well experiences (digital and non-digital) serve their intended audiences. Most recently, I was the focal for the Training and Coaching branch of a rapidly growing sales enablement platform (Highspot). I worked on net-new features, updates, and fixes for my area, contributed to an evolving design system, and was the SME for Highspot’s custom-branding offering for it’s customers. The atmosphere was highly collaborative (other designers, PM’s, developers, and more) and the latest addition to my growth as a designer.

In my spare time, I run a small events production outfit – Loosely Based – that allows me to exercise my interest in graphics, art direction, branding, and creating memorable experiences for people. I also have a deep background in mechanical and electrical engineering and am quite comfortable with working in cross-functional teams, communicating effectively, convincing stakeholders, and responding to change. By leveraging my blend of skills, interests, and experiences, I aim to provide a unique perspective. I’m happy to make new connections and chat about all that encompasses the design world, and I can be reached here. Thanks for stopping by, cheers!
