aurelio arantes

I am a Designer based in Toronto.

I am fascinated by the relationship between talent and creativity, and how technical skills improve both of them. As a problem-solver and detail-oriented professional, I know how to design better experiences for people.

I started my career in 2007 as a Frontend Developer and I am still coding by today. Coding is not a prerequisite to be a good designer, but It makes my job easier because I have high knowledge of digital-based technologies and their impact on the feasibility of design solutions, including the capabilities and limitations. I am also very supportive and I can work collaboratively with different teams, especially Developers and Product/Project Managers.
