Hi! My name is Cherly Fernandez and I am a recent UI/UX Designer graduate based in the greater Seattle area, with 3+ years proven record of creating efficient, beautifully designed, delightful, and meaningful product experiences. Functionality and aesthetics are my key design principles, and I strive to design and create user-centered solutions.
My experience as both a program and project manager has made me adept at working with cross-functional teams, including engineers, product owners, and other managers. By driving partnership with these teams we delivered results and accomplished organization-wide goals.
I made the switch to the UI/UX field after having first-hand experience developing productivity tools from concept to launch while working at Amazon. The whole experience opened my eyes into a new world of creativity and problem solving, which I found myself constantly craving.
In my spare time, I love designing houses and home interiors, and playing with my two Jedi corgis, Yoda and Anakin.
