Hi! I’m Karen Gonzalez,

a Creative Unicorn focused on


UX /UI Designer + Motion Graphics


Thanks for taking the time to check my Portfolio. As a Senior UX Architect with over six years of experience in user experience design, I have worked with many clients, from small start-ups to large corporations. I am passionate about creating user-focused products that are intuitive, easy to use, and visually stunning.

My Principles

I am a minimalist! I focus on bring users a clean aesthetic while exploring and covering their needs. Functionality, simplicity, and honesty guide my creative thinking and overall work.
Mastered platforms such as Adobe Creative Suite (Adobe XD, Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects), Axure RP, Figma, inVision, Sketch, and UxPin.
There's no small or complicated project I wouldn't take with an open mind and excitement. I can help connect users with digital products by creating or elevating approachable and clean experiences.
Users first.
