I’m Raquel Marin
WHAT MAKES ME WHO I AM
My name is Raquel, but my friends call me Raque or Rachel. I’m a UX Designer who enjoys continuing to learn and develop.
I was born and raised in Mexico City, where I earn my degree in Graphic Design. My passion for books made me specialize in Editorial Design.
I’m currently living in Toronto, where I have over three years of experience in Customer Service, and seeing the pain points users experience made me turn into UX Design.
What do I love about UX Design? I love that I can help people. Being empathetic is one of the many skills I learned while in Customer Service roles. That, combined with my background in Graphic Design, allowed me to start creating memorable experiences for my users.
WHAT I TAKE JOY IN
🏞 I enjoy travelling to new places and learning about various cultures.
👩🏻🍳 Cooking is a passion of mine. I’m not a great baker, but I’m always up for experimenting with new recipes.
📚 I also like to keep myself updated, so I like to read about the latest trends in Design.
🍿 Some of my favourite TV shows are Dark, Modern Family, The Handmaid’s tale and cooking competition shows such as MasterChef.
🎧 Some of my favourite artists are Imagine Dragons, Coldplay and Kygo.
