I'm Alex Cortes.
UX and Product Designer with over a decade of experience.
As a human-loving optimist and design thinker, I approach both experience design and leadership with a people focus, striving to establish empathetic thinking for the people who make and use the products and services I help bring to life.
Throughout my career, I've led design teams in IT consulting firms, startups, and large outsourcing players to create people-led experiences that meet both business and user needs.
My UX practice combines product design, design thinking, and UX strategy, all with a human-centric focus.
I hold a post-graduate degree in UX Design, which has helped me to stay up-to-date on the latest trends and techniques in the field.
I currently work for the Condo Group in Hamburg, Germany and there I'm building experiences for clients in the real estate market.
